Headup Games and indie studio Silent Dreams, the teams behind the popular Grotesque Tactics franchise (Grotesque Tactics: Premium Edition and Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts), have today revealed that they will release a spin-off of the popular irony-peppered fun-RPG in September of 2012 titled Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead.
To get a bit of relaxation after the last big battle of Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts, Holy Avatar, the game’s protagonist, is on holiday with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island, his recently purchased “Holy Island”. When they get to the island’s beach they made a gruesome discovery: numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the path to the inside of the island. The Guild of Maidens is afraid that something horrible happened in the maidens camp on the island. Holy Avatar, secretly happy about this twist, is going to investigate what exactly happened with a part of his group, looking for new adventures.
Silent Dreams also revealed that Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead will feature new optics that were redone from the scratch with fresh Cel-Shading graphics and an overly colorful and more friendly look, after the community’s suggestions and demands.
