Mary Skelter 2 Launches 13th January 2022 on Steam and GOG with 15% Launch Week Discount

It’s only been a few weeks since Ghostlight Games announced that they would be releasing Mary Skelter 2 onto Steam and GOG, and now today the UK based publisher have confirmed that it will be released on the 13th January 2022.

In addition to the confirmed release date Ghostlight Games have also confirmed that Mary Skelter 2, which includes Mary Skelter: Nightmares built-into-the-game, will have a listing price of $34.99 / €29.99 / £27.99 and be available with a 15% discount for one week.

What must you sacrifice to escape fate? Find out in this nightmarish dungeon-crawling RPG! The Nightmare continues in Mary Skelter 2! In this first-person dungeon crawler, play as fairy tale-inspired characters called Blood Maidens, each with deeply customizable character-specific classes. Balance between power and madness in turn-based battles with a blood-fueled transformation system, and escape a living prison while indestructible Nightmares give chase in real time.

The Jail – a living prison that feeds on the humans trapped within its confines. The Jail appeared a number of years ago with the caving of the city around it.
Now twisted creatures known as Marchens and treacherous Nightmares roam its halls. Otsuu and Little Mermaid are a part of a group of humans known as “Dawn” attempting to survive these horrors. They succeed in saving Alice and a young man named Jack on one mission. However, on their return back to base, Alice goes mad and begins attacking those around her. Alice strikes Jack, who was trying to protect Otsuu and Little Mermaid, knocking them down a chasm. Later, Otsuu and Little Mermaid awaken from the fall only to find Jack on the verge of death…

And so begins the tale of escaping from fate, led by a group of girls seeking sanctuary in this mad world, and of the young man who would transform into madness itself – a Nightmare.

While Mary Skelter 2 will be making its way to Windows PC it’s not without some controversy, as recently posted onto the Steam forums is confirmation that the Windows PC version of Mary Skelter 2 will have the Purge Minigame removed.

Due to circumstances outside of our control we have had to remove the Purge Corruption minigame.

For those of you who want to know how we’ve handled it in game, it works the same way as if you’ve already completed a purge once and choose to skip the minigame. You pay the same cost in terms of Jack’s mental state and then the character is purged, as if you had successfully completed the minigame.

This purge minigame, which was removed from the Chinese version of the PlayStation 4 game via a patch but included in the localised Nintendo Switch release, sees players interact (touch/rub) blood off of characters bodies in order to return them to their normal state. A Japanese trailer from the original marketing of Mary Skelter 2 showcasing this feature can be found here. Naturally the removal of this content has caused a bit of backlash on the Steam forums, but as of late Steam are being restrictive on the type of content allowed on the platform with most publishers only given one chance to get it right.

Regardless of this, Mary Skelter 2 is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and will be available for Windows PC users via Ghostlight Games on the 13th January 2022 via Steam and GOG.
