The PT (Konami cancelled Silent Hills Game) inspired game Visage is looking very very good, and not to mention creepy. The game will pull inspiration from the once playable demo on the PlayStation Store. What started out as a straight re-creation of what was already there, took a new life on itself.
“[Visage] is going to feel a lot more like an adventure/play-a-movie game, rather than an action horror game with jump scares all around,” Visage programmer Jonathan Gagné said.
“Visage will make players focus on details,” says Gagné. “You’ll always feel like something’s off, without really knowing what, until a decisive moment.”
Some of the games events will trigger at random and will try to never do the same thing twice or in a row. This in hopes will make the game replayable to gamers since they are only expecting the games playthrough to last on 6-8 hours.
“You’ll have to venture the rooms, in search for clues about what happened and what’s going to happen,” Gagné says. “You’ll find fragment of stories all around the house, and it will be up to you to uncover the story or find means to escape. Also, it’s psychological horror, your (protagonist’s) mind will play tricks on you, just like the nightmares in Phantasmagoria.”
Visage plans to launch on PC with VR support in January 2017 with Xbox One and Playstation 4 support to come after if it can meet its crowd funding goal!
