Devotion is a first-person adventure game in the convention of surrealistic horror, with an action set in Taiwan in 1980. The game draws inspiration from historical events, as well as Far East beliefs (Taoism and Buddhism), folklore and horror. Red Candle Games, a Taiwanese independent studio, known primarily from another horror game, Detention from 2017, which won the IndieCade Award, is responsible for the creation of this production.
The story presented in Devotion takes place in an old, forgotten apartment building on which a dark curse seems to rest. The player takes on the role of a man returning home after years and discovers the story of a family living in the shadow of their beliefs and vows made to a mysterious existence.
Devotion is an adventure game with elements of survival horror. Watching the action from the first person perspective, we try to survive and solve the mystery of the past of the building and the family living in it. Completion of the task requires exploration, solving logical puzzles and finding and using objects. In the game we will not find a fight.
Devotion has a single player campaign only. There is no multiplayer mode in the game.
Devotion is distinguished by its attractive three-dimensional graphic design. The artistic style of this production is characterized by a high level of realism. The game world is full of details, the lighting system also makes a good impression. However, special attention should be paid to the unusual climate, characteristic for the Far East. The game is accompanied by a soundtrack recorded with the use of traditional Taiwanese instruments. The theme is created by No Party for Cao Dong, the winner of the Golden Melody Award.
