On the eve of its release, PSLS peaks between its fingers at Frictional Games' PS4 horror, SOMA.
This game took about 11 hours to complete for most testers. I'm definitely down for that value!!!
Thats pretty long for a 30$ game. Im really impressed with Indies lately. http://www.indiedb.com/comp... "Frictional Games isn't really located in Helsingborg, two of us live here and the company is registered here, other than that it is very much a virtual company. Currently we are five people working full-time, all from our own homes, with the Internet as our "office". In addition we hire contractors to help out with specific tasks during production, such as audio, writing and graphics." After reading that. WOW
yeah same. good stuff coming out. i'm definitely going to pick this one up. love the art direction to boot.
Yeah, truly impressive. Although after Penumbra and Amnesia, it really is not that big of a surprise. Frictional Games are going to go on to big things. I think the indie detractors should feel pretty awkward after the games like this that PS4 has been getting and will continue to get from very small independent teams. Can't wait to download this at midnight!!!
That reminds me of Moon Studios the dev team behind Ori. They were something around 7-10 people strong, I believe. They mainly corresponded through Skype and email. Some of the team members never even met one another until post launch. It goes to show what can be acheived with work ethic and a singular vision. This game reminds me of a mixture of Bioshock, The Sphere, the cramped quarters of Dead Space 1, and with the crazy looking figures Ghost Ship maybe? Lol. I just know that it looks awesome.
"Im really impressed with Indies lately." I think we can stop using that term now. Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 are by independent teams..... Soo yes, independent teams can create great work as they are no different then any other team other then not being owned. That is like saying your really impressed with an independent artist as if being a commerical artist makes your work different.. Both can do the exact same work and one would not be able to tell the different. Independent is not a genre, it has almost no bearing on the quality of the work. Max Payne was done by a independent team and Rockstar merely agreed to published. As in it went from a finished independent game, to a commercial owned game.. The game didn't change lol, it was STILL MAX PAYNE. If a game is finished and completed and its them published under a big publisher......what exactly is happening to the game that one would deem it some sort of genre after its been published? Independent is merely stating its not owned, its not a genre and its no different then any other game. Consider Rockstar one day could not renew their contract with Take-Two...ie Rockstar Owns the IP to GTA...they very much could just self publish GTA one day...thus making it indie. Soooooo if they merely make another blockbuster game, would we now be surprised at its quality? As if it being owned or not had something to do with that? Its a really impressive game....period. Someone owning it or not has little to do with its quality.
@Edmix I didn't mean to sound like I was attacking Indies on the contrary I love them. What I really mean is that I'm impressed with the quality of games that really small studios are capable of making.
friggin trailer scared me,no way i can play this.
Stop being a girl (sorry if this offends any feminists) and play it lol If this scares you then you defo do not want to play PT demo that was on PS4. This game looks great you cannot be scared of a video game? I cant wait to try it out!
Jumps scare and crying is the most powerful remedies in human. Don't believe me, after you cry you will feel much better the same being scare. I know because experience it before. To over come being scare watch Tales Of Horror from japan.
I'm still waiting for that space syfy horror game ROUTINE to come out, where's the update on That, And will it be ported to PS4 I wonder?
Playstation 4, The place where you can play everything, with until Dawn and Soma we are set in the horror department for the remainder of this year.
Adrift also :3
"Daren't" is a word?Huh,you learn something new everyday .
I'm here solely because of that word; if Until Dawn is terrifying me, I'm not even gonna read about this game. But I'll go anywhere for a word like daren't.
My eyes are wide open and I cannot wait to play this tonight
Im thinking about jumping into this one. Just not sure what to expect.
PS4 Renaissance of survival horror and jrpg's.
So glad is happening. I love both horror and Japanese games.
It's not like they ever disappeared from PC. Also Wii had a lot of great horror games. Unfortunately, 3 of the really great ones never made it to North America.
I've always said SOMA is a mix between Outlast and Bioshock and people are foolish to ignore it. It's actually sci-fi and horror, and the sci-fi is unbelievably high brow and incredibly thought-provoking. This is a terrific console exclusive releasing on PS4 tomorrow, you can't gloss over these high quality games when Condemning PS4's "holiday lineup".
Your first paragraph sold me on this game. I need more intelligent sci-fi/horror. Getting it DRM-free on GOG and then(hopefully) for Playstation VR(If I have the courage). Anyone have any additional suggestions for intelligent sci-fi/horror that we might not have heard of? Books/movies are good too.
Well said. You're always the one person I've consistently agreed with on this site.
Thank you buddy i try to bring thoughtful comments every time, but it seems no matter how many agrees i get i can never get an extra bubble, they only ever get taken from me. I am the "taken king" i suppose. SOMA is a real gem this fall, i encourage people to play it.
I wish PSVR is out now and there's PSVR support for this game.
I like how ps4 bringing back a lot of lost horror games It really feels like ps2all over again..
Although the article does not mention it at all this game is also coming to PC.
give us a physical release
And it's on PC too.
