Fans of the late swiss surrealist painter H R Giger have been limited to his artistic works such as paintings and sculptures, and his work in the media Such as designing the deadly creature from the Alien movies and Species movies. Now thanks to the Serbian development studio Ebb Software Giger fans will finally be able to explore a virtual world that Giger could have, and most likely did dream of in their forthcoming title Scorn, which is currently in development using Unreal Engine 4 and will be released on the PC via Steam this year, having recently being greenlit by the steam community, despite a failed Kickstarter campaign.
Scorn is an atmospheric first person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry. It is designed around an idea of "being thrown into the world". Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. The unsettling environment is a character itself. Every location contains its own theme (story), puzzles and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive lived in the world. Throughout the game, you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, various items and try to comprehend the sights presented to you.
Developers, Ebb Software, have stated that the game will be released in two parts, but will not see any DLC being released. Unfortunately, there are also no plans for a sequel, but if publisher Humble (famous for the Christmas Humble Bundle used to raise money for charity in the Yogcast Jingle Jam live streams on Twitch) can market the game to the right demographic, then who knows what the future will hold scorn. Be sure to check out Scorn's homepage and Steampage to show your support for this awesome looking title.
