What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe Desolatium can become a revolution in the world of video games. Can you imagine what it would be like to experience and enjoy Lovecraftian mythology in real settings? We have spent years dealing with the challenge of transporting the player to that universe, and it has become a personal and professional dream to see that idea come true.

Desolatium was born from the vision of a small group of friends that have spent years sharing ideas and supporting each other, and now, thanks to Early Access, we would like this community to keep growing with the users as part of this wonderful adventure.

Let's make a game together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The release date of DESOLATIUM is planned for the first semester of the year 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“What you are seeing here is an early version of the game. The full version will include:

1. A completely new story, deeper, darker and more complex than the current one.
2. New gloomy locations. The old hospital, the forest and the cabin weren’t enough for you?
3. We will bring a whole new set of locations that will give you the creeps!
4. Improved ambiosonic sound.
5. The final game will not only have static images, it would also include stereoscopic videos!
6. New puzzels, riddles, notes, challenges...
7. A new inventory system, so you can handle your objects and artifacts in a more eficient way.

And many more things to come thanks to your help!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is an early version that has already won several awards. Here you will find some puzzels, 3 different locations (and old hosptal, a dark forest and a cabin in the woods), 4 differen ending plus a secret one...

If you liked it, make sure to support us on our KickStarter! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/superlumen/desolatium-new-graphic-adventure-based-on-lovecraft-mythos”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For the moment, and throughout the Early Access, our plan is to keep the current price.

Once the final version comes out, it will be given a full price, so make sure you don’t miss the chance of joining this adventure through the Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We would love to know your opinions and ideas, as crazy as they may be, so let us hear from you through our social media:

You can play Desolatium on a PC / Mac or enjoy a more complete and intense experience with a VR device (Oculus or HTC Vive)




We live in a predictable world. The anesthetizing reality of our every-day only seems interrupted by fragments of horror, presented to us in the form of news about wars in third world countries, tragic accidents or pandemics. And still, even under the worst circumstances, most of us know exactly what to expect from the next day, and the next ... accepting our programmed dose of routine.

Only a few have come to glimpse something else, something that lives among us, that lurks in the dark, that hides in the corners of space and time. But they wish they had never seen it, because there is another world waiting at the limits of this one, a world of indescribable horror.

Disappearances, ritual murders, a great and ancient evil that longs to return to the world that was once his. Investigate the disappearances and try to discover what lies behind, entering a hidden and dark world where you will have to leave behind the safety of an ordinary life. Try to make sense of the truth ... and not go crazy in the process.

       




       




Desolatium is a new way to fully immerse yourself, in first person, in the Point & Click Graphic Adventure genre. It incorporates features of Survival Horror so that you can live a unique experience, such as real settings, the ambisonic sound (8D), a Lovecraftian narrative and hyper-realistic graphics, enriching your gaming experience.

  • Full Immersion: To get you fully immersed we have invested all our efforts into enhancing the sound and hyper-realistic graphics, combining them with a chilling story based on Lovecraft’s Myths, and with a decision-making system that will transport you straight into a story like you have never experienced before.

    Desolatium will be available for PC / Mac, although, if you want to get a total immersion, you will be able to use a Virtual Reality device.

  • Hyper-realistic Graphics: Every level has been generated by recording real locations in 360º, and later integrating 3D elements in a very subtle way, in order to transport you directly into the insane universe of DESOLATIUM.

  • Ambisonic (8D) audio: The ambisonic audio (also known as 8D) generates a surrounding sound effect that appears to come from every direction, creating the feeling of being in a real scenario where danger lurks in every corner... a few steps behind you... a chilling scream behind a door... can you imagine hearing the piercing sound of a primeval god chasing you, as you try to overcome the obstacles on your way out?

    In DESOLATIUM, all the voice-overs, effects and sounds are created using this technology, in order to make you feel part of the mystery like you have never been.

    Best of all, you only need headphones to live this experience.

  • Multiple endings: In DESOLATIUM you will set the course of the adventure. Every decision you make will determine your path, taking you to a variety of situations through the different narrative lines that the game contains, and that will lead you to one of its multiple endings... Will you be able to avoid more murders? Will you find out who is behind all of this or will you prefer to be part of some ritual?
