Martha Is Dead is a dark first-person psychological thriller, set in 1944 Italy, that blurs the lines between reality, superstition and the tragedy of war.

As conflict intensifies between German and Allied forces, the desecrated body of a woman is found drowned… Martha!

Martha is dead, and her twin sister Giulia, the young daughter of a German soldier, must alone deal with the acute trauma of loss and the fallout from her murder. The hunt for the truth is shrouded by mysterious folklore and the extreme horror of war that draws ever closer.

What will prevail?

Unashamedly authentic voice acting in Italian.
The first Indie game to launch using the native Italian language as the default setting – for full immersion into the story and the characters.

From the creator of The Town of Light
The second game from LKA, the award-winning developer of “The Town of Light” and specialists in reality based narrative games focused on tough subjects.

Deep and dark multi-layered narrative
Martha Is Dead is an exploration of loss, relationships and the psychological undertones of a dark period of history through the eyes of a young woman who seeks the truth, but who also has secrets of her own to hide.

Explore a detailed recreation of the Italian countryside
Freely explore the breath-takingly realised Tuscany countryside on foot, by boat, or bike. Grounded in reality, Martha Is Dead’s setting and historical context are inspired by real facts and places that have been faithfully reconstructed in true LKA fashion.

Play with dolls
Play with numerous marionette sequences in the mechanical theatre to remember repressed memories.

Mixing folklore with superstition
Unlock symbols and use tarot cards for unveil new aspects of the game and to summon the spirit of The Lady.

A backdrop of War
Collect newspapers, telegrams and listen to the radio to keep updated on what is occurring in the world during the war.

Virtual photographic greatness
