Maid of Sker Trailer Reveals Terrifying Welsh Folklore

It’s hard to think that with our recent string of FMVs and interactive movies like The Complex, Late Shift, and The Bunker, that Wales Interactive have sneakily been hard at work, creating a traditional first-person survival horror for the past two years. We’ve gone back to our developer roots — and our heritage — to produce not just any horror, but a Welsh horror…

Cymru am byth!

Dripping in Welsh folklore, Maid of Sker takes inspiration from the haunting tales surrounding a Cistercian-built house, which just so happens to be a short journey from our very own Wales Interactive studio. Made famous by a Welsh ballad is the story of Elisabeth Williams, a tragic tale of a Welsh maiden who — in the 1800s — died of a broken heart after her father imprisoned her in her own room to stop her from marrying the man she loves.

Maid of Sker is a stealth survival horror at its core with a sound-based AI system which will test your survival tactics… with the aid of a defensive ammo-hungry device. You see, you are not alone at Sker Hotel but you are drawn to it because you are the love of Elisabeth Williams – and Elisabeth is in danger. Brave the nightmares of the Quiet Ones. Our advice? Do not panic…don’t even breathe. Maid of Sker is story rich, surrounding the history of a family empire that was driven by torture, slavery, piracy and a supernatural mystery that suffocates the grounds of the hotel.

Developed by us folk at Wales Interactive, we have enlisted the help of writing talent behind Don’t Knock Twice, Soma, Amnesia: Rebirth, and Battlefield 1. We also welcome Tia Kalmaru, who lends her spine-tingling voice to recreate some of the most famous Welsh hyms including “Calon Lân (A Pure Heart),” “Suo-Gân (Welsh Lullaby),” and “Ar Hyd Y Nos (All Through the Night).”

We open the gates to Sker Hotel with a digital Xbox One release on the Microsoft Store in June 2020.
