Heathen: The Sons Of The Law

Heathen: The Sons of The Law has finally been given an Early Access release date of autumn 2018, with the project suffering a protracted and spotty development cycle.

Previously, The Island of Doctor Moreau-inspired adventure game showed no signs of life for 18 months, before the developer, Frog Factory, provided an update on the title’s language options. Surprisingly, the project now has a set release date, almost out of nowhere.

Heathen was first announced in 2015 and acts as an unofficial sequel to H. G. Wells’s classic novel, casting players as one of the human-animal hybrids tasked with surviving on the hostile island. Gameplay-wise, the project concerns itself with action and exploration elements, with the aesthetic dipping into steampunk.

By allowing players to assume the role of the half-man, half-beast entities that Doctor Moreau invented, Heathen appears not to only add to the titanic influence of The Island of Doctor Moreau, but to offer a new approach to the novel’s legacy.

Further information, as well as a bundle of action-orientated screenshots, is available on the project’s Steam page.
