We're on the cusp of the '2020 Summer of Digital Showcases' and Mortal Shell's first appearance will be the world premiere of exclusive gameplay on June 5th's IGN Summer of Gaming! We can't say too much more, but you'll be seeing even more exclusive sneak peeks in the days that follow.

To hold you over until then, we have some fresh assets for you to gaze upon. Keep your eye out for more... the glands are coming.

Previously known as Dungeonhaven in its earliest days of development, _Mortal Shell_has been painstakingly designed by a prized coalition of veteran developers who are credited with working on some of the biggest AAA titles on the market. Produced by a core team of just 15 people, Mortal Shell was only made possible due to the team’s pedigree and burning desire to honor the painful majesty of the genre.

For a small team like ours, developing this title in many ways felt like crossing an ocean on a paddle board,” the studio’s three co-founders — Andrew McLennan-Murray, Anton Gonzalez, and Vitaly Bulgarov — said in a joint statement. “To finally announce Mortal Shell is one of the most exciting and terrifying experiences we’ve had in our lifetimes. The last two years have been a time of non-stop growth, full of shocking revelations of sheer complexity that goes into creating a video game that you, yourself, would really enjoy playing.
