Tale of Tales, developer of the unique The Path horror adventure title, recently announced the release of Fatale. The game is described as an interactive vignette in realtime 3D and is based on the character of Salome, daughter of Herodias, who at her mother's urging called for the beheading of John the Baptist. Tale of Tale's interpretation is inspired by Oscar Wilde's play, Salome.
Explore a living tableau filled with references to the legendary tale and enjoy the moonlit serenity of a fatal night in the orient. Fatale offers an experimental play experience that stimulates the imagination and encourages multiple interpretations and personal associations. Requirements:
Fatale is played through first person 3D navigation but its controls were designed to minimize the risk of motion sickness. As a result, it may appear somewhat unconventional to the seasoned gamer.
Salome is a first century Judean princess mentioned in the Christian Bible by Matthew and by Mark. But it is Oscar Wilde's 19th century play “Salome” that really inspired Fatale. In the Bible, Salome is a child who dances for King Herod and asks the head of John the Baptist as a reward. In Wilde's version, Salome falls in love with the prophet. He rejects her and she has him executed. The play ends with her kissing the lips of his decapitated head.
Most of Fatale takes place in the aftermath of this event, when all has turned quiet and the moon brings comfort to troubled hearts.
Fatale costs $7. For more information follow the links below.
