I’ve only recently fallen back in love with Horror games thanks to the incredible Outlast series so it should come as no surprise that I’m more than a little excited and intrigued by what I’ve seen from the folks over at Deep End Games and Feardemic. This visually stunning horror adventure is sure to please those of us with a strange hunger for being messed with psychologically so be sure to check it out below.
After months of research, Cassie has discovered an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, Mass. Armed with a cellphone to contact the outside world and her drive to solve the mystery, she sets off for Echo Bluff… only to find it’s worse than her nightmares. A ghostly ‘Presence’ has tormented the house’ inhabitants for generations, and now has its eyes set on Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or risk becoming one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way through the house by tapping her cane to “see” via echolocation. Every sound creates a visual, but there is a cost. Each cane tap will reveal her whereabouts not only to herself, but to her pursuer, the Presence. She must avoid detection by using the ambient noise of the house to help her navigate or by making use of objects to create distractions.
Only one thing is certain: The Presence is searching for Cassie… and it’s listening.
Perception launches on PC May 30, 2017 on GOG.com and Steam while the PS4 and Xbox One versions have been briefly delayed to June, with specific launch dates to be announced.
