It’s 1944, and a war that for a long time seemed so far away is drawing ever closer to home. As the Allies work their way up the spine of Italy, Giulia has to fight her demons after the death of her twin sister Martha, just as her father, a Wehrmacht general, is now at the forefront …
Wired Productions, the global video game publishing label, and the Italian studio LKA, today unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming first-person psychological thriller Martha is dead, which focuses on the impact of WWII on Tuscany.
After the death of her twin sister Martha, Giulia finds herself battling her demons just as her German father Erich – a general in the service of the Wehrmacht – struggles to stem the tide of war.
Wired Productions and LKA They may also reveal that Giulia’s father, Erich, will be voiced by celebrated German actor Udo Kier, who has been a leading figure in German and international cinema for more than 50 years. Most recently, Kier played the title role in the acclaimed and award-winning film Swan Song. Your role in Martha is dead – which arose as a result of a shared vision and belief in the project – allows you to give Erich a voice in three languages: Italian, English and his native German.

“The stage has always been an incredibly important part of Martha is dead«, Says Luca Dalco, founder and director of LKA. «The Italy of 1944 was a country paralyzed by panic and paranoia. With the Germans occupying the north while the Allies liberated the south, loyalties were strained as the nation literally split in two.
“Udo Kier was a perfect fit for the role of German general and father of the twins. It’s a real coup for the team to get it done. “
Also, the first demo of Martha is dead will launch as part of the Steam Next Fest, which runs from Friday, October 1 through Thursday, October 7. This demo will include different excerpts from the game, as well as an exclusive final scene and additional elements that will not appear in the final release.
