The horror genre is enjoying something of a comeback these days, what with Resident Evil 7, The Evil Within 2, and a plethora of independent horror games.
Narcosis is of the latter, but it certainly looks decent, though you’ll have to wait for Kyle to finish up his review to find out if actually plays decently. Until then, there’s the new gameplay trailer to peek at up above.
Unlike conventional games, Narcosis is a slower-faced, story-driven horror/survival game. You won’t be making any mad-dashes for “da choppa” and you won’t be making jokes while you dangle from a cliff. You’ll be inside a high-tech dive suit, dubbed a “walking coffin.” According to the game’s developers, Narcosis is “rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.”
Narcosis hits PS4 via the PlayStation Store on July 24th. Be on the lookout for the Pure PlayStation review very soon.
