Codex Gamicus

Saturnalia is a horror indie game developed by Santa Ragione and published by Tactic Studios. It was released on Epic Games for Microsoft Windows and macOS sometime in late 2021.


This is a survival horror adventure where the player controls an ensemble cast who explores an isolated village of ancient ritual – its labyrinthine roads change each time they lose all their characters.


Sardinia, Italy: in an isolated village of ancient ritual, people disappear during the winter solstice. On the 21st of December 1989, a group of strangers team up to survive and unfold the secrets of the night of Saturnalia.

  • The village structure changes each game over.
  • Manage your supply of matches to explore & solve puzzles.
  • Non-linear progression, adaptive narrative.
  • Untapped folklore, unheard-of visuals and sounds.
