Tentatively titled Fatale, to be published by Tale of Tales, has been announced for a October 5 release.
Because of this, ToT has decided to unveil Salome – the gal who wanted John the Baptist’s head on a plate. The character was designed, modeled and textured for the project by game artist Takayoshi Sato, of Silent Hill fame.
According to the press mailer:
“The character of Salome is complex because “Fatale” is designed to evoke all possible interpretations of her legend simultaneously. Salome is at once the mighty princess who mercilessly seduces men to their downfall and an innocent child on the brink of womanhood who is manipulated by the grown-ups that surround her. But she is also just a girl, a teenager who falls in love with the wrong man at the wrong time. She gets a first taste of the sweetness and the bitterness that we all know so well.
“And then there’s the Salome created by Oscar Wilde: a mad woman, lurking in the shadows of our souls, a selfish, passionate, willful creature who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.”
Full thing past the break.

Path developer Tale of Tales has announced its next project as Fatale, a games that threatens to be even more emo than its predecessor.
“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,” said a statement from Tale of Tales Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn.
It’s out on October 5, the 78th anniversary of the first public performance of Salomé in English.
