YEAR OF THE LADYBUG  is a one-of-a-kind, third-person perspective Survival Horror game currently in development, providing unsettling & formidable puzzles designed around the captivating narrative. The concept art (see below & offical site) is some of the most disturbing, unique and refreshingly original I have seen in the Survival Horror genre.

The focus of the gameplay mechanics will be on a unique melee & combo system, where attacks can be unleashed in various directions & configurations, and each weapon provides distinctive fighting techniques as multiple skills are unlocked & evolved.  Daring to play will mean challenging your emotional boundaries and accpeting to experience the true meaning of unimaginable fear, panic and dread. A mass murderer known only as 'The Ladybug Killer' mysteriously awakes in a crippled hospital and soon discovers that he is locked down in a quarantine zone with other survivors. As he fights off nightmarish creatures and demonic illusions in a wild struggle to find any way out, we slowly come to uncover the unfathomable root of his evil...

followed the link to the official site, those concepts are sick - in a good way! I wasnt convinced some of the more surreal designs would incorporate into gameplay but as I read further I saw that awesomely frightening plant-pot man from the concept art featured in the gameplay storyboards and I gotta say I'm seriously hyped for this game.

Well first of all I love the idea of playing as an antagonist. A mass murderer. Only Silent Hill I can think of has tackled this sort of aspect and they usually played them as sympathetic. I am really interested in how the story plays out. Excellent promotional work by these guys including a prologue comic on the site. The enemies of course stand out these are amaingly original. Plant pot head is genius. I am really curious as to how all these creatures came to be. Is it like a Cabin in the Woods kind of situation? All the enemies are creepy as hell. I hope this game comes to fruition as I will gladly put my money down for it.

Now this looks pretty awesome and cool, unique too and it loks to have a very interesting tale behind it all. Certainly going to enjoy learning more about this, horror is always a great things to toy with... Till it consumes you.

Too many survival horror kick-starters have failed to make target funding, it's a graveyard of independent horror so I'm hoping beyond hope YOTLB doesnt join that list because I've never seen such an original pitch containing such hideous designs. 'Plant Pot Head' will give me nightmares all week, it's already creeped me the fuck out I cant sleep. Playing as an antagonist or at least a protagonist with an unpleasent past thru the whole game, not just as a end game bonus, is a feature I've longed-for so another reason to wish this pitch finds the right developer.

I k now I am late to this party nonetheless though I am here. I have to say the album art is unbelievably sickening and the sexual sadism behind this is all incrdible, this game looks like a one of kind thing we have not seen in any game so far very unique and sexully sickening in a good way. I am really looking forward to playing this once in a lifetime game that breaks all barriers of any other video games we have seen. This is what I call The Autophagous Orgy of entering the mind of a madman and I am really looking forward to any future updates and playing this game in the near future.

What she said! But concept art alone maketh no game! Where is the demo, it's been months since this was announced?
