Just started the game in early access and loving it! It's hitting two different nostalgia spots: Poking around corners in a PS1 game looking for gold, and that sweet sweet open world Morrowind bullshit. Ten million stars. I really like that the game keeps surprising me!
A downloadable game
Dread Delusion is currently in development, and will be published by DreadXP! But you can still play the early prototype:
- Grab the demo on the HauntedPS1 Demo Disc - out now!
- Get the early-access alpha for $2 on the LovelyHellplace Patreon
For more Dread Delusion info, keep reading:
At the edge of the world lies the citadel of the Clockwork God, where state-approved magic is regulated by strange machines.
There are whispers of a festering sickness, corrupting the people and the earth alike. Those outside the citadel walls are condemned to drift as twisted, unspeakable things.
The Clockwork God has calculated that a saviour will emerge. But even God has been known to malfunction, of late.
A Small Scale RPG
Dread Delusion features an intricate 3D world in a PSX style. To progress the story and uncover the source of the land's corruption, you must:
- Visit towns, meet characters and complete quests
- Upgrade stats, collect gold and buy items
- Explore the map, unlocking new areas and secrets
- Make choices - with repercussions
Strange Places, Strange People
There are three unique towns at each corner of Dread Delusion's 3D map. They are explored through a text-based interface, similar to games such as Sunless Sea or 80 Days, and act as narrative dioramas. Events, decisions, trading and more will be found here. Expect to visit:
- The Sacred City - a medieval keep wrought with paranoia and sickness
- Pwyll, an oppressed pagan village where otherworld magic is supressed by the Clockwork God
- An abandoned town, festering with corruption, whose ghostly inhabitants wait to die

Is there any chance of being able to purchase the early access release here or at GOG?
I played the demo and loved it. :)
The Steam demo was a great time, I really got into it and while I did complete everything it had to offer, it's too bad that it was taken down after the festival. It's a good size demo and I think a lot of people would enjoy it. 👍
My demo lasted like 10 mins? LULW
I just played the demo and I love it. I wish there was a way to support your project other than Patreon. I would be more than happy to drop some money on Dread Delusion here for the Early Access. I am just not a fan of Patreon like recurring payments.
Just out of curiosity does supporting you on Patreon get you the full game upon release?
Either way I will be grabbing this title when it releases. it is that good.
Any chance to get a console version for those who don't have a PC?
Hi! Just played Steam Demo and I LOVED it. Fantastic world, I lost myself there.
But I also had issues with UI and controls. I took me some time to figure out how to equip dagger (clicked on dagger in UI but it not responded, did not know I was supposed to click empty slot first), how to choose potions, and I still have no idea how to cast Home spell (I hold mouse button, spell book appears, and I don't know what I supposed to do next).
Anyway, I really liked the Demo, played through it and completed all quests I could find. Would love to play full game!
The use of color and unique characters is really nice!
Full Demo No Commentary
Is this still in development
I would love to play your game!
Just found Last years demo disk. This game seems amazing! Please finish it when you can!
I really want the game to have Russian localization
Still hope to buy the full version! Very intrigued.
Just played the demo in the demo disc, it blew me away and I can't wait for the full release!
Great game, bad demo. Things shouldn't be disabled during the demo, as a matter of fact the "disabled in the demo" messages shouldn't exist.
All of your other games run very well on my PC but this demo has a very slow framerate. Not sure why that is.
One of the games from the Demo Disc that I really want to see more of. Wonderful art style, an interesting plot so far, and has that very vague unsettling oppressiveness to it. My only wish was that I myself could have played more of it! Gameplay starts at 7:36.
Looking forward to this after playing Penitent Dead.
This game is fucking spectacular! Or , It looks like it will be. I played the demo and was blown away. Very excited for the full game to be released.
I'm excited. Gonna wait for a full release. The demo was really intriguing.
I found this through the Haunted Demo Disc and I gotta say I love the aesthetics and world building you've done. I was immediately drawn in and immersed by this strange corrupted world and the giant neuron star in the sky.
Keep up the awesome work!
When I saw Vinny (Vinesauce) play this, I just had to grab the demo disk to play it for myself. You've created a real thing of beauty here, this is right up my alley. I can't wait to play the full game!
I'm hooked, can't wait.
Wow,i love it.Is VR a possibility for the full relase ?
I absolutely adored what I saw of this in the HauntedPS1 Demo Disc, can't wait for more!
Fantastic! Your games have a totally unique and eerily fascinating atmosphere and wonderful aesthetics!
love the concept! Must play!
