Plug In Digital, the publisher, has published a trailer for the forthcoming horror game Lempo. The video is a little under two minutes long, but it does an excellent job of conveying the scary mood, akin to the latest Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay footage. Lempo’s gaming world is unique in that it is based on Finnish folklore.
This is not the first time that video games have drawn inspiration from Finnish mythology, despite being less well-known than its Norse cousin. For example, the Rune Bears in Elden Ring were inspired by the legendary Finnish notion of bears. They were so venerated that even the name of the bear was deemed too holy to use. Even though Elden Ring’s Rune Bears were difficult to combat, bears are unlikely to be the major danger in Lempo.
