The rules of survival within the walls of the remote Mount Massive asylum are very simple: run, hide or die. The nearly forgotten home for the criminally insane was recently re-opened by the transnational Murkoff Corporation whose activities have been hidden away under a strict code of secrecy. Miles Upshur, an independent journalist, decides to investigate into an anonymous tip, but quickly finds himself swallowed up by the deranged horrors that have taken over the asylum. Outlast is a first-person survival horror game that takes you on a journey through a nightmare that you may never wake from.
Featuring an advanced AI that learns from your every move, Hello Neighbor puts you in the shoes of a curious resident who endeavors to figure out what horrible secrets their neighbor is hiding in the basement. With sandbox-style gameplay with plenty of environmental interaction and physics and a constantly evolving experience where the Neighbor’s AI counters your moves (and learns from what you do), this stealth horror game is sure to keep you on your toes.
At its heart, Observer is a game about technology, culture, and the horror that can result from the convergence of humanity and tech. What would you do if your fears were hacked? Taking place in a cyberpunk version of Poland in 2084 where robotics, augmentations, and screens litter the landscape, Observer puts players in the shoes of a detective who must invade his suspect’s minds to gather evidence, reliving their fears in order to discover the truth.
