Built in Unreal Engine 4, Martha Is Dead combines real-world locations, working in links to historical events during the latter stages of World War II, superstition, folklore, and deep psychological distress. The game opens in the depths of the Italian countryside as Allied and Axis forces turn the nation into a pincered playground.

Watch the feature “Crafting a Masterpiece”:

“From the first concepts, we knew we wanted to push boundaries and deliver an immersion through detail and realism. It’s not easy, there are often comprises to make in scenes, but I’m so proud of what my team have been able to deliver”. Said Luca Dalcò, Founder of LKA and Creative Director on Martha Is Dead, “The term powered by Unreal engine, is more than just a marketing saying – the innovation the team at Unreal help developers unlock is unimageable, as seen through the recent Matrix tech demo. They also give us the chance to push further on game quality giving us economical support on development. We’ve utilised features but also have managed to place LKA at the cutting edge of new tools, being early adopters of the MetaHuman technology, which we’re excited to continue to reveal more on.”
