Indie developer Tale of Tales is going all biblical with their latest project, it's based on a 2,000 year-old legend surrounding John the Baptist.
Basically some chick demanded the head of one 'John the Baptist', in exchange she do a little dance for her step-father, King Herod. Oscar Wilde's 1891 take on it is the inspiration.
"Fatale" is based on the legend of Salomé, who, 2000 years ago, demanded the head of John the Baptist as a reward for dancing for her stepfather, King Herod. Oscar Wilde's 1891 interpretation of Salomé as a young woman in love with the prophet is the main inspiration for the project," announced Tale of Tales.
"In "Fatale" you will be able to explore the scene of this momentous historical event, experiencing the story through the emotions and thoughts of the characters involved."
Fatale is being released this October 9th, which coincides with the 78th anniversary of the first ever public performance of Salomé in English. Great, I guess.
