(Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: What kind of game is Deadhaus Sonata?
A: Deadhaus Sonata is a cooperative multiplayer, free-to-play Action RPG where you play the undead fighting the living. An unstoppable force from Deadhaus, you are a monster among men, dealing death and destruction on a massive scale. Launch enemies in the air and eviscerate them with elegant dance macabre. Consume your enemies to make yourself whole while exploring the grim world of Nogosaua. We are combining elements of many of the past games from Denis into Deadhaus Sonata. There are Lovecraftian overtones from Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, the gothic role-playing elements of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, where you are undead, and finally, some of the action RPG elements of Too Human. Deadhaus Sonata combines fast action, loot-driven gameplay, deep Gothic lore and a Dark Mythology.
