Tech giant Sony has announced that Perception is coming to PS4.
Developers of two of the best horror games of the last generation came together to form the Deep End Games. The first project of the company is a kickstarter-funded game called Perception.
The game was put on Kickstarter in June 2015 and 4357 backers pledged $168 041 toward the $150 000 goal.
The project will also be supported by newly formed publisher Feardemic, which will specialise in horror titles.
Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure featuring a young, blind woman who depends on her razor-sharp hearing to solve an ancient mystery and survive the forces that pursue her.
After months of research, she discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, MA. Once there Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than her nightmares. A ghostly presence has tormented its inhabitants over generations and it now hunts Cassie.
She must solve the estate’s mysteries or become one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way by tapping her cane and can “see” via echolocation. She need to avoid detection and uses ambient sounds of the house to help her navigate or uses objects to create distractions.
Every sound creates a visual. But there is a cost…sound will attract your enemies and reveal your location. One spotted, your only hope is to run, hide and pray that it doesn’t find you.
Bill Gardner, Creative Director at The Deep End Games accompanied the announcement with the statement:
“We have had an overwhelming number of requests to bring Perception to PlayStation 4 players. Needless to say we’re stoked to make this happen. It’s also fantastic to have a great publishing partner like Feardemic to help ship the game; allowing us to focus on development as much as possible.”
No official release date is available for when Perception is coming to PS4.
