Love retro styled horror adventure games? Mortisomem looks like it could be interesting, and another that's going with the old PlayStation 1 graphics style. Mortisomem is set in early 20th century Brazil and seems quite spooky.

"Mortisomem is an adventure, mystery, and horror game with retro visual aesthetics. The game takes place in the year 1917, in the vast forest of inland Brazil. Donald Barnes is an immigrant and a successful American merchant in Brazil. However, one day he hears a traditional story from the region that greatly captures his attention; about a man who lived hundreds of years ago, brutally murdered by his wife's family, and who, after his death, became a cruel demon that kills the inhabitants of that area out of hatred and resentment. This demon was called Mortisomem."

Little fact: "Mortisomem" is an entity name that does not exists in Brazilian Portuguese folklore.

Although, it looks like it is using the constituent sufix "-somem" which means Were(from werewolf). pt_BR version of Werewolf is Lobisomem (Lobi = Lupus = Wolf + somem = were = "man in a shape of").

Morti means "death bringer" in latin, so it is likely that Mortisomem means "The deathbringer man" or "the personification of death"...
