Bioshock and Dead Space Devs Team Up for Horror-Adventure “Perception”
The Deep End Games (with devs who worked on Bioshock and Dead Space) announced their latest title Perception today. The game is a narrative-driven first-person psychological horror game from some masters of the genre.
While it doesn’t seem to hold the action of Bioshock or Dead Space, we’re curious to see what these veteran developers cook up in the title.
Perception is set to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 30. Check out the trailer, story synopsis, and some screenshots 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.”
