MadMind Studio is a newly formed developer with a taste for the darker side. The group of nine developers, whose experience ranges from The Division to The Witcher 3, have set out to create the best possible, visually stunning game with unique atmosphere. What is that atmosphere? If the name is anything to go by, pure dread. The game is Agony.

Agony is a first-person survival horror game. You are a tormented soul in Hell with no memories of the past. Your goal is simply to survive using you ability to control others and possess simple demons. Through your journey, you'll speak with the denizens of Hell and learn there is only one way to escape - by meeting the Red Goddess.

Agony is coming in 2017 to Xbox One.
