The Lust from Beyond release date has been delayed to late February 2021 due to the developers needing more time to provide “a truly immersive product” for players.
Lust from Beyond is an in-development game that’s definitely oriented towards adult audiences, mixing themes of sex and psychological horror. The product of a successful 2019 Kickstarter, this game has already been delayed once. Now, the developers have revealed that they need to delay it one more time before they get this game out the door.
You can get an idea of what Movie Games Lunarium is trying to make in its very first Dev Diary video:
What is Lust from Beyond?
Lust from Beyond is a game that aims to mix erotic and psychological horror themes. Antiquarian Victor Holloway has been plagued by visions of a mysterious realm that mixes pain and pleasure, ultimately resulting in him joining the Cult of Ecstasy. His visions pave the way for the cult to enter Lusst’ghaa, the Land of Ecstasy that is apparently a realm entirely separate from our own.
Aside from the game’s intriguing theme, the developers have also opted for a novel release strategy akin to The Stanley Parable — they’ve released a free-to-play demo called Lust from Beyond: Scarlet that lets you get a feel for the gameplay totally for free. This is a separate story that takes place before the main game, so it lets you check out the mechanics and worldbuilding without actually spoiling the narrative of the game proper.
When is the Lust from Beyond Release Date?
The Lust from Beyond release date is now February 25, 2021, according to a press release from the publisher — roughly a two-week delay from its most recent launch date announcement.
Lust from Beyond was originally targeting a launch date of September 24, 2020. That was later pushed back to February 11, 2021, in order to get the game out before Valentine’s Day 2021. Unfortunately, it looks like the developers won’t be able to make it in time, resulting in a second (and hopefully final) delay.
For now, you can still keep yourself occupied by playing the Lust from Beyond: Scarlet [NSFW] demo for free on Steam. You can also add Lust from Beyond [NSFW] to your wishlist on Steam.
