Visualistic Studios®: Mist of the Dark®, developed and produced in-house, using the versatile Unreal Engine 4® game engine, combines the passion for a truly horrifying and enjoyable game with the experience of a dedicated development team. The result is a new breed of horror game. A fully multiplayer experience that will have you looking over your shoulder at every turn. This is a horror game like no other.


A "unique gameplay experience" is a claim made by almost every PC and console game that is released these days. Unfortunately, players are often left feeling like they just purchased the same game as last year but with updated graphics. With Mist of the Dark®, we aimed to create a truly unique gameplay. With numerous ways to win the round-based multiplayer gameplay, customizable player-hosted servers, and dynamic events, the game brings a fresh and exciting new aspect to the horror genre.


A very big aspect of this game is the "Play as the Monster" feature. Much of the gameplay depends on who is playing as the monster. You can choose your playstyle! You could hide around corners, slowly trapping soldiers in corners and cutting them off from their group. Hunt them down one by one using your own tactics, take them on in an epic battle, or any other way you like to play! This is one of the best features of the game, because it allows you to scare, kill, and hunt the way that you choose.


At Visualistic Studios®, we believe that a genuine experience is key to a great game. That is why, when creating Mist of the Dark®, we decided to make it an entirely multiplayer game. But we did not stop there. We designed our own "E/F Factor" providing customizable player hosted servers, handing over complete control to the player. Included in the multiplayer gameplay is a background story that provides an inherent sense of direction for players to work their way through the many horrific twists and turns of each level. This is a multiplayer experience that is customizable, understandable, and designed to provide the gameplay that you, the player, are looking for.


With the use of Unreal Engine 4®, created by Epic Games®, the engineers at Visualistic Studios® have been able to create a gameplay experience that encompasses higher detail, game mechanics, and dynamic world interactions, above those of any other engine. Graphics were just one of the priorities in the development of this game in order to truly design an experience to immerse the player in the stages we have created.


The game’s maps have been engineered to morph and change, always ensuring a unique gaming experience every round. Never knowing what lurks within the next shadow, players can face anything from surprise cave-ins to startling mysterious player effects. These and other dynamic events have been designed to keep the player on their toes from start to finish of every level.


Understand that this is a EARLY ACCESS GAME. It is not yet completed, nor does it contain all of the features we wish to implement. The animations, graphics, and models are not as good as they will be on launch. We have limited funding! Models, animations, and other art aspects are VERY expensive. However, if you like the idea of the game, support us! All of the money goes towards making this game better for the players. We listen to our community, and wish to make this game a GREAT experience for you.
