Review: Martha is Dead is a deeply disturbing game that isn’t for everyone

As long as you can withstand its often extremely disturbing content, Martha is Dead is a absorbing and atmospheric adventure with a brilliantly realised setting and a beautifully haunting soundtrack. We can’t stress enough that it won’t suit all tastes, however.

  • A beautifully detailed setting to explore
  • A haunting, perfectly judged soundtrack
  • An engaging plot that remains in your head long after the credits
  • Its disturbing themes and graphic imagery will be too far for some
  • Some story beats fall a little flat
4 / 5
