Vigil: The Longest Night

Vigil: The Longest Night appears to be the newest addition to Lovecraft’s video game renaissance, but the first to translate that particular brand of horror to a 2D side-scroller.

The title, which will be the debut of Taiwan-based studio Glass Heart Studio, is an action side-scroller set in a plague-ridden village that appears to marry the Lovecraftian and Silent Hill aesthetic with Salt and Sanctuary-style gameplay.

Further details can be found on the developer’s Twitter and website, including some more enemy design, gameplay details, and concept art.

Vigil made a big splash on Steam Greenlight last year, so indie and Lovecraftian aficionados should be excited for the game’s release sometime this year on PC.
