While not much is known about the game, the combat looks snappy and stylistic, according to early footage and the trailer. Reminiscent of the game Sifu, we’re excited to get our hands on this one.
According to the Steam Page,
“Built in 1962 by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux, The Butterfly House is more than a mere residence; it’s a gateway. Its perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometries were designed with a singular foul purpose in mind: to open doorways into a terrible and fascinating dimension called The Wyrd.”
Gamers and Hellboy fans can wishlist the game on Steam.
