Original Story: Maid of Sker is an upcoming PlayStation 4 survival horror inspired by Welsh folklore. It’s been penned by some of the people behind Don’t Knock Twice and SOMA, so there’s pedigree behind the package.
“[The game] draws players back to 1898 to adventure through the notoriously macabre Hotel Sker,” the press release reveals. “With multiple ways for your stay at Hotel Sker to come to an end, use your time wisely as you navigate the halls and grounds employing no-weapon survival tactics, and relying on your ability to keep quiet to stay breathing.”
The plot revolves around a classic folk tale involving a tragic individual named Elizabeth Williams, who lost her life after her father locked her up. Singer Tia Kalmaru is “lending her voice to the game to recreate Welsh hymns in theme with Maid of Sker’s terrifying tone”, and you can get your first taste of that in the trailer embedded above.
