The story-driven psychological thriller Loretta is in development for Switch, publisher Dangen Entertainment and developer Yakov Butuzoff revealed today. A release date will be provided in the future.

Loretta “makes the player an accessory to the heroine’s crimes and leads her through a self-crafted nightmare.” When it comes to gameplay, players choose phrases in dialogue, interact with objects, and make decisions which involve planning the murder and getting rid of the evidence. A number of different endings are planned.

The title takes inspiration from twentieth century American art, the works of Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper, film noir of the 40s-50s, thrillers by Alfred Hitchcock, the Philip Ridley movie “The Reflecting Skin,” the books “1922” by Stephen King, and “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov.

Here’s some information about the story of Loretta:

The year is 1947. Lora and Walter Harris move to a farm, which used to belong to his parents. Walter is a writer and Lora is a housewife. Both are quite unsuccessful.

The family is going through financial difficulties. The situation is also complicated by the fact that Walter owes money to people from New York. And although the husband keeps it a secret from his wife, Lora has a suspicion. Moreover, she suspects him of cheating.

Lora understands that she gave up her job, her dreams and other opportunities for her failure of a husband she doesn’t even love. Now she is stuck in a cold empty house barely making ends meet.

As she struggles to make loan payments, she finds out that Walter’s publishing house has insured his life. In the event of his death, the insurance sum would be $30.000. A plan is born in Lora’s mind.

A trailer for Loretta can be found below.
