Martha is Dead Tale of The White Lady
The story in the trailer shows the beautiful relationship between Giulia and her Nanny. We see how the child persuades the Nanny to tell the tale of The White Lady who is a drowned maiden. Her killer and lover confessed and was hung at the same lake. Now she stalks the shores of the same lake looking to drag others down to meet a similar fate. However, those suffering could possibly evoke the maiden using a ritual of tarot cards where she make or may not take pity. What makes this tale even more unnerving is that it is based off of a real Italian legend.
Along with the Tale of The White Lady trailer information about the game’s soundtrack were revealed. The soundtrack will feature a progressive and haunting feeling in part from the Danish group Between Music. Their music is created by performers who play custom instruments while being completely submerged underwater.
