Official description

Vigil: Blood Bitterness plunges you into the dark and disturbing story of an ancient civilization where you must reveal the secrets of your past and exact revenge on the Evil destroying your universe. Ritualistic killings and blood lust blur the line between your own kind and the Evil you seek to annihilate. Your ultimate goal is to free yourself from this tormenting place and understand the origin and the purpose of this never ending Evil.

Vigil is a stylized gothic horror adventure game that uses black and white imagery similar to Frank Miller's Sin City to create a unique visual that draws you deeper into the gruesome world of your character, Dehon. Avoid deadly traps, solve puzzles to unravel your past, and even devour the faces of your slaves for sustenance towards your ultimate goal of freedom.

Not entirely sure, but I think Dehon speaks either Spanish with intense growl or plain gibberish that vaguely sounds like actual language, I'm tagging it as gibberish until someone can clear that up.

If anyone wants to try identifying it (if that's even possible...)

The game hints on the following things:
Cannibalism (Dehon and others ate slaves when they fancied it), familial homicide (Dehon murdered his siblings for their failings), immortality (Dehon is over 3 million years old), near god-like powers, the nebulous Evil Dehon is trying to destroy is in fact himself, ...
