A game that can drive the players ecstatic with its amazing 3D graphics and horror-action concept. Influenced by the Alone in the Dark cinematic series, Ecstatica is all set to floor the gamers who are no averse to blood shedding and jaw-dropping fight scenes.
The plot takes place in the era of 10th century. You the player comes across a village which you find inconspicuous. Thus, the player decides to investigate it further to stumble upon much more mysteries and eerie truths. All through the gameplay, the player needs to be extremely vigilant as there are monsters and ghosts lurking upon you. Also, do not be dazzled if you find a pile of body parts strewn across or when being ambushed by piglets. Furthermore, be prepared to face attacks from werewolves and dragons out of nowhere.
Fighting the monsters in the start may seem bit complication considering the obscurity of controls. However, once set, it will be an easy cakewalk for the player to counter the enemies. Through the ellipsoid graphics and amazing mix of 2D and 3D graphics, Ecstatica renders players the feel of living the scenes in real.
The sound and music only further add to the thrill. With plenty of monsters to fight and bloodsheds, the excitement is heightened with each passing level. So, if you too are fond of killing the monsters and unveiling the mystery, this game series is exactly meant for you.

The studio made the survival horror Ecstatica series with two games: Ecstatica (1994) and Ecstatica II (1996). They both use ellipsoid technology to render characters. A third game, Urban Decay, was in development for Psygnosis and used the game technology, but it was left abandoned in favour of developing the Ecstatica sequel and eventually it was cancelled.
