There's a preview of Venetica (that death related RPG type thing) up at WorthPlaying:
dtp's RPG Venetica, developed by Deck 13 (Ankh, Jack Keane), is a visually stunning RPG with a cryptic storyline, mixing emotions and action in a unique free roaming and living sixteenth century world full of surprise.
Here and there, the dead help Scarlett to accomplish her missions by giving her hints: There are two ghosts, for example, who help Scarlett to find special items by revealing hidden doors or showing her helpful hints that will allow her to pick locks successfully. Scarlett meets these guys early in the game, when they still are alive. She helps them, but can’t avert that both will be killed later in the game.
Venetica’s Twilight World offers even more to the players: It’s not only special NPCs and enemies that resurrect in the world of the Dead – also Scarlett herself uses the underworld to re-awake. This allows her to generate herself tactical combat advantage, for instance by repositioning herself unseen while staying in the Twilight World, and afterwards surprisingly returning to the world of the living.
