Video Game / Soul At Stake

Go To
There's an Urban Legend about a game going around. Whoever wins this game would become exceedingly rich, and their destiny would be changed so they'd become the mightiest overnight. All they need to participate is one stake...

Their souls.

Once the game begins, the gamblers must survive against a "devil" that will attempt to claim their souls as its own. To win, the gamblers must take part in a ritual to expel the devil and reclaim their souls.

Soul At Stake is an Asymmetric 1 vs. 4 Survival Horror game made by Chongming Studio. It was released for PC through Steam on June 25th, 2018.
