Gaming Factory and Alrauna Studio have revealed that Hotel Afterlife is in development for Nintendo Switch.
This single-player economic strategy game comes packed with black humour and has looked to appeal to fans of Two Point Hospital and the Dungeon Keeper series.
You will play as a manager of an unusual hotel that is located in the inferno of the afterlife. However, rather than care and pamper your customers, you will need to “host” the sinners accordingly with torture devices and other rooms.
There are nine hellish maps that have been modelled on the circles of hell from Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, along with a Freeplay mode that will let you build a hotel from scratch.
“Hotel Afterlife is not a five-star hotel full of luxury but a very specific place. It is a kind of purification of sinful souls,” explains Alrauna Studio game designer Michał Stonawski.
“In this world, the currency will not be dollars, yen, euro or cryptocurrencies but simply sins. Our game will provide many opportunities and will release the creative potential of players.
“The gameplay will focus on building, personalizing soul purification and various economic elements. There will also be a good level of ambiguous humor and references to pop culture and politics.”
Gaming Factory CEO Mateusz Adamkiewicz. adds: “This hellish tycoon will combine elaborate strategic and economic elements and a lot of black humor. Hotel Afterlife should appeal especially to players who appreciate games in the style of Two Point Hospital, Dungeon Keeper, Hotel Giant or Prison Architect.”
Hotel Afterlife will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
