Death Relives is a first-person survival horror game in which you must attempt to avoid being sacrificed to/murdered by the Aztec god Xipe Totec, and it's coming to PS5 at some point in the future.
Developed by Nyctophile Studios (the condition of being very happy and comfortable in the dark), a team that professes a love for horror and mythology, gameplay options are restricted to simply running and hiding to survive in the terrifying style of series like Amnesia or Outlast.
It's the specificity of this one we find quite intriguing; Xipe Totec, known as "Our Lord the Flayed One", was a life-death-rebirth deity worshipped in Mesoamerica during the Early Postclassic era who was often depicted wearing flayed human skin as a cloak. The realm of religious gaming could be about to level up; now we need the announcement of an I Am Jesus Christ console port.
