From Pentadimensional Games – the band of developers that brought us the first-person super-hero sim Megaton Rainfall – comes a truly brain-warping action adventure known as Tenebris Pictura. This corporeal, supernatural title has you in the role of a detective with psychic powers – can you solve all the puzzles to uncover the mystery?
Ghosts vs Psychic
Available now on Xbox, PlayStation and PC platforms, in Tenebris Pictura you are immersed within a battle between your psychic self, and paranormal demonic beings that attempt to get in your way.
Set during the Victorian era, you must explore an eerie island in search of clues pertaining to a disappearance. Solve a number of puzzles by transcending through paintings, shifting elements of the environment and more. There’s multiple routes to success with these challenges, so don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.
When you aren’t being all detective, you are playing the role of fighter in the game’s combat. Whilst you may be overwhelmed numbers-wise, you can use your psychic powers to help you out in a pinch. Ensure you dodge well out of the way of any nasty ectoplasm that is shot your way.
