Headup Games Press Release: Grotesque Tactics: Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead (and the The Full Saga Bundle at a special price) now available!

Düren, 21th February 2013 – Today we are proud to announce the latest release of the Grotesque Tactics series. Developer Silent Dreams has created a spin-off of their popular RPG-Parody with Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead - fully dedicated to the greatest hero of all times.

As the story goes...

...to get a bit of relaxation after the last great battle, our hero Holy Avatar decides to grab a little R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island he recently purchased and renamed “Holy Island”.

Upon arrival on the beach, he makes a gruesome discovery; numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the island and what’s worse, they’re not staying dead! Holy Avatar must put down his mai tai and investigate this strange and unsettling turn of events. New adventures, new hazards and, did we mention the zombies… await our hero and his companions inside the dense woods and caves of this once idyllic island.

Silent Dreams has listened to the Grotesque community and created this new chapter from the ground up with brand new visuals: Fresh Cel-Shading graphics and a colorful and clean look!

As part of this new approach, Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead is introduces a fixed camera, providing you with a clearer overview of the events in the game.

The Caribbean island flair is felt throughout the game from the tropical design of the HUD and character portraits to the sound of the steel drums, rum-soaked music, carrying the warm comforting Southern Sea feel throughout.
