SKYHILL: Black Mist is a follow-up to a unique Skyhill game from 2015, in which the player’s task was to escape from a hotel controlled by demons. A simple idea wrapped in 2D comic-book graphics appealed to thousands of players around the world, instantly becoming an indie bestseller (200,000 copies sold on PC).

In SKYHILL: Black Mist you wake up in your apartment situated in a huge residence which was built by Skyhill Inc., a suspicious biotech corporation that controls the entire city. Being a Skyhill employee, you have just received the keys from your apartment and moved in. Suddenly, everything starts to fall apart: your daughter is being kidnapped and the whole building is invaded by dark monsters and crazy cultists that want to hunt you down. You must save your daughter and survive whatever the cost facing the imminent danger, being chased by the mysterious black mist that transforms humans into disgusting creatures.

The second installment of the series is a combination of classic horror and gameplay straight from survival games. The game loosely parallels the original concept, but gameplay-wise it’s a revolutionary step forward. This time the developers moved from 2D to 3D, presenting the action in an isometric view. The game mechanics have been significantly enhanced with stealth elements and solutions known from metroidvania-like games, including the ability to re-explore already visited locations to find previously inaccessible items and information. An important element of the game, also improved compared to the original, is a crafting system that allows players to craft items that will help them survive in the most difficult conditions.
