Yangyang Mobile, a Filipino video game development studio, has made quite a name for itself in the world of visual novels. After releasing titles such as the tantalizingly scandalous Love Esquire and the LGBTQ+-focused Perfect Gold, the studio is gearing up to release their latest visual novel, Saint Maker, next year.
Saint Maker, which is being billed as a horror story filled with eerie religious iconography and psychological scares, marks the studio’s first return to the horror genre since 2017’s The Letter.
As the game opens, Holly Beltran, the game’s protagonist, is attending a religious recollection when she suddenly experiences strange hauntings throughout the Convent of the Sisters of Saint Idelorat.
Broken-faced statues and whispering prayers haunt Holly’s dreams, making her realize that she may have to face more than her own personal hell in order to make it out alive.
A full cast of professional English voice actors will be used to bring the characters to life in Saint Maker’s dialogue.
Interacting with the dialogue options is a feature that goes hand in hand with this one, as the player’s choices will aid Holly in discovering more about herself during this horrifying ordeal.
When it comes to creating spine-tingling visuals for this game, Yangyang Mobile is pulling out all the stops. Players will be immersed in the haunting setting of the Convent of the Sisters of Saint Idelora, which will be brought to life by detailed backgrounds, computer generated imagery, and animated illustrations.
Saint Maker will be available on PC via Steam and Itch.io, as well as on mobile devices via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, as well as on the Nintendo Switch console.
Wishlist Saint Maker on Steam so that you can keep an eye out for its release, which is expected to be sometime in 2022.
