Developed by the Paraguayan team at Warani Studios, and helped along by Badland Publishing, The ORIGIN: Blind Maid will soon be coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Today that all-important release window has become known.
The first quarter of 2021 is all you need to worry about at this time, as that is when The ORIGIN: Blind Maid rolls out to console and PC.
Taking place in Gran Chaco, a vast region that stretches across Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina, The ORIGIN: Blind Maid will deliver a storyline to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC players that promises to explore terrifying myths and legends of universal folklore. You could well say that it’ll provide a real first person horror experience.
In THE ORIGIN: Blind Maid players will embody a real scoundrel, a corrupt politician on the run from justice after being accused of multiple charges. His plan was simple and seemed effective: to cross the Paraguayan Chaco in the company of his assistant to escape to Brazil. What this politician, the incarnation of one of the great evils of today, could not have imagined was that there he would encounter a much older and more implacable evil. That is where the Blind Maid comes in, a supernatural entity with a tragic past that we will end up discovering all about over the course of five intense chapters. At least we will, if we don’t die first.
Created as a story of crime and atonement, THE ORIGIN: Blind Maid will force us to fight for our lives, crawling through the vegetation to escape the constant harassment of Evil, all while exploring different locations in search of objects and weapons.
It is the choice of the Gran Chaco (a vast geographical region that extends between Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina) as the setting for the game that is most interesting here and it’s something of a declaration of intentions from Waraní Studios.
Why resort to Anglo-Saxon, Asian or Central European myths, when the South American continent has a rich and terrifying folklore that has not yet been explored in video games? Get ready to see your faces with Karai Vosa, different kinds of ghosts and a real gallery of deformed creatures, terrifying personifications of the psychiatric disorders that tormented them in life.
But how will you deal with them? The main course of action is that of stealth, especially in the early stages of the game, although later there will be access to a variety of firearms to neutralize “tangible” enemies and objects, ranging from medicinal plants to holy water, with which to make spells that will protect us from ultra-terrestrial dangers. But that’s not all and improving our player character as we go is going to be essential – physically, mentally, and spiritually, things can be amended.
We’ll be sure to bring you more as and when further details of The ORIGIN: Blind Maid roll out. For now though, check out the teaser trailer and hold tight till launch on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021.
