Song of Horror focuses on the struggles of players with an ancient entity called The Presence. It is controlled by artificial intelligence, which, according to the devs, adapts its behaviour to the style of play preferred by the person, which is supposed to additionally build the atmosphere of terror. It is also intensified by the fact that death in the title is the final end for the controlled character. He or she is then replaced by another one who, although starting the investigation from the moment interrupted by death, will perceive certain events in a completely different way.
