This is Scorn - Horrifically beautiful

Scorn is an obscure, yet horrifically beautiful game and it's been rejected by investors because it's just "too weird for mainstream" and "have only single player." (Ebb Software, PC, PS4, Scorn)

It made me think R. Giger. Such a talent. Hope this game can see the light, it may be an original horror IP.

I really also hope so, the bits we've seen thus far looks very promising. I recon they should go for Kickstarter or ask Sony for Indie support

Not enough sexual imagery for H. R. Giger.

lol, a little while ago when some leaked images of Scorn released I commented on how it reminded me of Gigers work to get nothing but disagrees

i thought we had moved past this "gamers don't want single player" BS

The problem with investor types is that they aren't gamers

Exactly, who can blame said investors for being too scared to invest in such a thing ;)

That and they think inside the box. MS dropped Quantic Dream because of some questions they had in their game plot.

As a gamer i will always love a great singleplayer experience. Nothing like playing through a riviting game!

Publishers look to fill slots in the market window. It doesn't matter how good the games are, for example if there are 4 military FPS games releasing in 2014 it makes it hard for them to publish a 5th. They need to secure investments in order not to keep their jobs.

All in all I'm happy that we're seeing such a boom in indie games currently. Scorn looks awesome and I hope they find a way to prove the publishers wrong :)

Intriguing, but will it deliver?

There a great gap in the horror genre of gaming, and i think indie developers not affected by mainstream may give that little extra oomph that it needs.
Sillicur  +   60d ago
Exactly! I really hope this game gets released!

So you're saying the game is being... SCORNED? *ba dum tshh* :D

Too weird? Contra has Giger inspired bosses back in the days...

Artwork is really good though, if done well it could become a very atmospheric game.

Best of luck to them

I love the artwork, looks like a mix between Dune and Alien
