Indie game development studio League of Geeks has announced that their next upcoming title will be Solium Infernum, the strategy game from Hell, a re-imagined vision of Vic Davis’ cult-classic game of politics, intrigue, and betrayal. The demonic turn-based experience is being reimagined by Armello creators, League of Geeks, experienced in delivering great strategy games to millions of players around the world, with a planned PC launch in 2023.
In this brand new title players will be able to go deep into a reimagined version of 2009’s Solium Infernum, complete with all-new single-player scenarios and scheme-in-your-sleep asynchronous multiplayer matches that will require cunning moves and political wit to outplay their opponents. The game will be modernized and built in 3D with a totally updated visual interface to bring it in line with League of Geek’s unique and acclaimed aesthetic and production values.
In Solium Infernum, all participants take turns simultaneously; with each player only able to see their enemies’ schemes unfold after making their own choices. The game will offer a full range of experiences, from 2-4 hour single-player games to epic, weeklong six-player multiplayer matches that require only a few minutes to play a day.
“The original Solium Infernum is one of the most remarkable videogames ever made. Its evocative, Milton-inspired vision of Hell and deep focus on political intrigue are unlike anything else on the market,” said Trent Kusters, Co-Founder and Director, League of Geeks. “We are honoured and ecstatic to bring Solium Infernum into the limelight it has always deserved!”
