Upcoming Psychological Horror Game 'Luto' Announced For PlayStation And PC

Luto, not a cooking game, is an upcoming first-person psychological horror game that looks to continue the trend left by the short-lived horror demo P.T.


Developed by Broken Bird Games and published by Lanzadera, Luto has been officially announced for PC and PlayStation. The announcement, however, failed to specify if the game would be available on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. Also, no launch date has been confirmed yet but a short teaser trailer for the game was recently released. It begins with a short walk through a familiar-looking corridor, followed by a series of quick cuts to various interiors, overlaid with an ominous and crackly voice over the radio talking about hell, saying: “The worst part about Hell is not the flames, it's the hopelessness.”

The official twitter of Luto's developer provided a short description the game stating that it is "a narrative experience of psychological terror that explores the pain of the loss of a loved one, the fear of the dark that lurks behind anxiety and depression." Broken Bird Games also provided an overview of Luto.

"Your mind can be a prison. Filled with your worst memories, this prison looks like a maze whose escape looks like an impossible task. Luto is a narrative adventure that tries to reflect on themes such as depression and anxiety in the darkest of settings."


Based on these brief samples, Luto appears to be significantly influenced by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro's short-lived horror demo collaboration P.T. After failing to materialize into a full game, games like Visage, Evil Inside, and even the most recent Resident Evil games attempted to fill the void left by P.T. by pursuing the photorealistic horror aesthetic that Kojima and del Toro presented in their playable teaser. Hopefully, Luto will be able to live up to its expectations.

No release date has been announced for Luto just yet so better stay tuned for future updates.
