There are many examples of found-footage movies…but have you ever heard of a found-footage video game? Even the XBox “Blair Witch” game isn’t taking that approach, but one indie developer in Spain is trying it. Drop Of Pixel is currently creating a first-person survival horror game, Underworld Dreams, and gameplay will be shown off soon at the Manga Barcelona convention.
The game is half-based on The King In Yellow by Robert W. Chambers, and half-based on classic survival horror games like the original Resident Evil. You play Arthur Adler, falsely accused of murder and returning to Groc House, the place where the killings were committed, to find proof of his innocence.
Instead, Adler finds a whooooole lot of Lovecraftian horrors. The game’s “footage” originates in the 80s, which makes its high-resolution presentation suspect, unless Adler had one of those experimental Japanese cameras. We’re assuming he did.
Investigate your environment, find clues and solve riddles.
Fight menacing creatures using different kinds of weapons.
Experience an engaging, twisting plot.
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, based in “The King in Yellow” written by Robert W. Chambers.
Different endings depending on the decisions made in your adventure.
Developed exclusively for Nintendo Switch™.
Underworld Dreams will be released on the Switch in the first quarter of 2020. A playable demo will make its debut at Manga Barcelona, held from October 31 through November 3.
World War Z is coming back…kind of. It’s largely the same game, but it’s headed to a new platform (Nintendo Switch) with the Deluxe Edition that will contain all the content previously released on PS4 and XBox One. So finally, Switch can stand equally with its contemporaries, right? I hope
Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing
We’re close enough to October that Spirit Halloweens are taking over all our vacant big box locations again, and that also means Fathom Events is readying the return of some classic horror flicks to the big screen. The odd thing about the 2021 lineup is that, since it overlaps with
Despite being a tabletop franchise first, Vampire The Masquerade is no stranger to the world of video games. Now another one is on the way, but it’s a bit different from the two Bloodlines games that came out in recent years. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt will be free to play,
