It shouldn’t surprise many that if you create a game with visuals so disturbing that you’re not allowed to release it uncut without an AO rating, that game would attract enough attention to make a follow-up profitable. We’re talking about Agony, a trippy, artsy trip to hell from developer Madmind Studios. Their publisher wouldn’t put out the game without cuts. Madmind eventually released the uncut version as a PC exclusive.
Now, the makers of Agony present its spinoff Succubus. It stars Vydija, a woman of the title species who players first met in Agony. She’s been through a lot since then….
With the disappearance of the rightful rulers of hell, the remaining demons have chosen their new ruler – the only soul who could dominate the mind of the mighty Beast. Raising their new empire from the corpses of sinners helped the new king, Nimrod, and his queen Vydija, to control the chaos left by the former overlord.
However, the new, honorable title of the queen of hell proved not to be the best match with the savage nature of Succubus. She gave up the luxury of walking on carpets sewn from the skins of martyrs, choosing to live her life in the wild instead, finding her simple pleasures in hunting.
When satisfying her primal instincts, the new queen crosses her roads with the powerful Baphomet who, along with his army, is pursuing the soul of King Nimrod. Being humiliated and betrayed by her own species, the heroine regains her strengths with only one clear target – REVENGE!
Now it’s come to light that Madmind will be introducing a new demon in Succubus — a two-headed, bat-winged monster named Cherub. You can see him in the trailer below, but you can also encounter him if you own Agony Unrated…
Madmind has just updated their original game to include Cherub, as a special preview for the sequel. In Succubus he’ll be your opponent, but in the original you can get a good look at him in several locations. Cherub spawns from another demon that summons Cherubs, meaning you’ll usually have more than one to deal with. Take out the spawner demon to get Cherubs off your back.
Succubus will be out soon from Madmind Studios — there is still no revealed release date.
