'Vigil Ep. 1: Blood Bitterness' Gets Steamed

Vigil: Blood Bitterness, previously known as Victi: Blood Bitterness, is a 3D episodic, black & white, moody adventure game where you play a character trapped on an asteroid, a relic of an ancient civilization. Meridian4 has signed an agreement with Valve to offer Vigil: Blood Bitterness for download on Steam.

Players will be plunged into a dark and disturbing story to reveal the secrets of an ancient civilization’s relics and exact revenge on the Evil destroying their universe. Ritualistic killings and blood lust blur the line between their own kind and the Evil they seek to annihilate.

Their ultimate goal is to free themselves from this tormenting place and understand the origin and the purpose of this uncanny Evil. An Evil that annihilates all in its path, it has no shape but seems to follow a precise scheme, drowning everything under a black essence; it is impossible to stop or even to slow down. Since its birth, the universe is slowly disappearing.

Avoid traps, solve puzzles and devour the faces of their slaves for sustenance.

Engrossing cut scenes bring every brutal detail as the gothic sci-fi story unfolds and plunges players into confusion. The chilling music, menacing characters and stylized black and white presentation draw them deeper into this gruesome, episodic 3D adventure game.

“Vigil is one of the most unique titles we’ve ever played and we are thrilled that Steam will make it available to their millions of dedicated gamers,” said Steven Milburn, Director of Marketing at Meridian4. “Any gamer looking for a real challenge in a twisted and horrific atmosphere is in store for a genuine treat in Vigil: Blood Bitterness.”
