‘SOMA’ looks like an extraterrestrial horror game, but will it exceed its predecessor?

So [we] just finished watching the four minute trailer for Frictional Games‘ newest announcement, known only as “SOMA.” While [we] have yet to play one of Frictional’s flagship Amnesia games, [we] have heard rumors that the level of it’s NOPE. moments is through the roof. This makes [us] wonder if “SOMA” can exceed, or at the very least meet, its predecessor’s level of quality. (Frictional Games, PC, PS4, Soma)

"I think therefore I am" wooh!! Descartes in the building !! Haha for some reason I love that they put quote in there.
This looks like it could turn out to be pretty freaky I just need to see more from the game to really have an opinion about it. For now, the trailer definitely grasped my attention.

It's Frictional Games. If anybody can do it, it's them! As long as The Chinese Room (Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs developer) has no part in it, I am confident they can!

The Chinese Room needs to whore itself out as writers. That's all they're good at it.

Frictional is a pretty fantastic developer but this needs to be a greater leap than Amnesia was from Penumbra in the gameplay department, otherwise I sense their fanbase is going to turn on them quickly.

why would their fanbase turn on them?
You speak as if the market is over-saturated with true, honest-to-god survival horror games.

The Chinese Room weren't really set up to make that kind of game.

Dear Esther was amazing, and that was the kind of original game they set out to make. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture shows that ambient, story-heavy adventure games are their calling, not jump scare horror games.

Really looking forward to SOMA, and I don't think TCR are any part of it.

I liked A Machine For Pigs for what it was - I twisted story told within a rather disturbing setting. It was good at that.

That said . . . it certainly wasn't what the original tried to be.

This game looks damned good.
No. But the Amnesia games aren't scary anyway.
