churchinthedarknessParanoid Productions announced the new project from Richard Rouse III (The Suffering, State of Decay) that delves into ’70s cult movements, featuring the actors behind GLaDOS and the Team Fortress 2 Sniper.

The Church in the Darkness is a top-down action-infiltration game set inside a cult in the 1970s, where the story changes every time you play. The game stars the voice talents of Ellen McLain and John Patrick Lowrie as Rebecca & Isaac Walker, leaders of The Collective Justice Mission. The roles of the cult leaders were written specifically for Ellen McLain and John Patrick Lowrie; married in real life and well-known for voicing GLaDOS (Portal) and the Sniper (Team Fortress 2), respectively. The couple is also helping to compose the soundtrack―Ellen’s musical contributions to the Portal series obviously need no introduction.

In the mid 1970s, fearing persecution for their beliefs, they relocate their people to the jungles of South America and build Freedom Town. The game has you infiltrate the town to check on the well-being of your nephew, giving you freedom to play the open map how you want: avoid detection, use non-lethal methods to get around guards, or kill anyone who gets in your way. The choice is yours. The game offers a dynamic experience that changes gameplay and narrative every time you play. You’ll find that in the jungle, not everything is as it seems.

The Church in the Darkness is coming to PC,Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in early-2017.
