London, UK - Thursday 31st October, 2019: After launching the original version back in April, Salix Games is excited to announce its new localised Russian, French, and German versions of Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey are now live as part of a wider update of the investigative adventure.

The new localised versions are designed to bring Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey’s unique narrative-led take on Victorian London to new markets, as well as adding fixes and fresh features to the current English version for the benefit of existing fans.

For newcomers, Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey tells the tale not only of the hunt for London’s most notorious murderer, Jack the Ripper, but also the harsh realities of the lives of those existing in the British capital at the time of his reign of terror.

The game - crafted by a team that, collectively, has worked at the likes of Lionhead and Rocksteady, amongst others - hands players control of immortal knight Sir Lancelot Du Lac and cursed sorceress Morgana Le Fey as they explore the city’s smoggy streets to investigate the murders attributed to the infamous Ripper. A player’s path is anything but linear, with extensive branching narrative, the crucial choices the players makes lead to unique - and potentially unexpected - conclusions. 

The updated Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey includes: -

Developer Salix Games has also now released a  200+ page art book and original soundtrack, which is almost two hours’ worth of music spread across 39 tracks by two world class composers Jools Scott (Flanders Remembers St Pauls Cathedral) and Jeff Rona (God of War, Devil May Cry 5). 

“It’s really exciting to be able to bring fully localised versions of Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey to entirely new markets and, hopefully, new gamers as well,” says Jessica Saunders, founder of Salix Games. “It was important to us to get high quality, fully localised versions of the game ready for regions where we think our tale with have the most impact, and we’re pleased to be able to add improvements to the existing English version as well.”

Lifted from Arthurian Legend, both Du Lac and Fey find themselves in new forms and, indeed, in a new time, taking with them the pains of their past lives as they trail the path of death left by Jack the Ripper. In the midst of their investigations they also encounter a Whitechapel local Mary Kelly, a young woman with special gifts who may hold the key to the entire mystery.

Developed by a team of true artisans in games, acting, art, sound and music, and brimming with quality, Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey features:

Dance of Death is available on Steam for PC.
