IT IS NO SECRET THAT MOST EMPIRES ARE FORGED WITH BLOOD. HOWEVER, THE LEGENDS SPEAK OF SOMETHING MORE TERRIFYING...A HORROR THAT HAS PLAGUED SOCIETIES SINCE THE ANCIENT PAST. ONE BY ONE, IT TOPPLED GREAT CIVILIZATIONS, LEAVING NO TRACE BUT DEATH IN ITS WAKE, NOTHING FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS TO RECORD. LYING DORMANT IN WAIT, THIS EVIL RESTED UNTIL IT WOULD AWAKEN CENTURIES LATER, READY TO UNLEASH TERROR ONCE AGAIN...

THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR THIS HORROR JAM IS EMPIRE - WHETHER IT BE EPIC CIVILIZATIONS OF HISTORY, SCHEMING BUSINESS CONGLOMERATES, OR EVIL SPACE ADVERSARIES, FEEL FREE TO EXPLORE WHATEVER HORROR GAME IDEA FITS YOUR INTERPRETATION BEST!
