I have just finished writing the launch article for Charon’s Staircase, a first-person horror adventure game. That is more concerned with delving into the past of a nation known as The Ministry and erasing it from history. The Last Days of Lazarus is a similar concept, but one that hits much closer to home. Find out what personal history is best left forgotten in Last Days of Lazarus on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Set in a post-Soviet Romania, you play as a man returning home to be with his sister after the passing of their mother. Unsurprisingly, these take a sharp downturn, with reality seemingly falling apart and a series of strange events occurring. Somehow, these are linked to the family’s disturbing past, and you must discover why.
Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person atmospheric adventure, that boarders on horror without overstepping the line. There are eerie locations, extreme violence, questionable characters and your own troubled past all to deal with. The mystery needs to be solved for complete closure; we hope you are up to the task.
Tempted? How does a review sound to convince you either way? Good job we have one for Last Days of Lazarus then.
Last Days of Lazarus is on the Xbox Store now priced at £16.74. Let us know in the comments below if you will be picking this one up for some mild spookiness this Halloween.
Set in a post-soviet Eastern Europe, Last Days of Lazarus tells the story of a troubled man, long estranged, returning to his childhood home after his mother’s death to spend some time with his sister Lyudmila. But as the country around him seems to fall apart, so does reality itself, with a series of unexplainable events leading him on a quest to find out more about his family’s disturbing past. Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person adventure game with a strong narrative, rich visuals and supernatural elements, heavily inspired by post-communist Romania, its troubled history, eerie locations, religious beliefs and strange superstitions. As the story unravels, you’ll meet questionable characters whose corrupted version of the truth you’ll need to navigate. With a troubled past yourself, you’ll struggle not only with solving the mysteries laid upon you but also with keeping alive any sliver of hope for salvation.
