Perception, the indie first-person psychological horror title, has an official release date. It also has a new trailer you should only watch if you aren’t afraid of loud noises and malevolent forces relentlessly chasing you in the dark.
Well, I’m not quite sure if the house the game takes place in is actually dark, since you play as Cassie, a blind woman. However, don’t think for a second that Cassie is helpless in any way. She can “view” her surroundings by taping her cane on the floor and using echolocation to get around. Every sound in Perception will create a visual that will help you navigate the house, but it comes with a cost. Sound will also drawn The Presence, an evil spirit that chases Cassie throughout the house.
Cassie explores the abandoned mansion in Echo Bluff to try and solve its mysteries. There she discovers that this Presence has been tormenting the residents for generations, and now has its eyes set on her. Cassie can avoid the Presence by relying on ambient noise as much as possible, or by using various objects to create distractions.
Perception sounds like an interesting horror game with a nice twist, and fans of the genre will be able to play it come May 30, on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
