Deadhaus Sonata is a narrative driven action RPG where you play a steward of the House of the Dead fighting for dominance against the living.

Deadhaus Sonata is a combination of fast action, loot collection and deep gothic lore and is sure to usher in a universe where gamers can explore a dark mythology like none other. The game will also feature its own musical score to create a deeply-immersive experience for gamers.

As an unstoppable force from Deadhaus, you are a monster among men, dealing death and destruction on a massive scale. Launch enemies in the air and eviscerate them with elegant dance macabre. Consume your enemies to make yourself whole while exploring the grim world of Nogosaua.

The brains behind Apocalypse Studios are no strangers to the industry. Founder Denis Dyack is the creator of critically-acclaimed video games including Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes.

  • Narrative Driven: Deadhaus Sonata will continue this tradition seen in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes and Too Human by incorporating a large amount of high quality voice acting and narration throughout the game. Constructed as a living and breathing Shakespearean play crawling with complex themes, characters, narrative and detailed plot-line.
