Scorn is a horror adventure compatible with Oculus Rift that has surprised us with its incredible graphic quality (do not miss the video) that takes place in a world clearly inspired by the work of the “father” of Alien: H.R. Giger. We will also see the complete avatar of the player interacting with a nightmarish world in which we will not be very clear who we are or where we are going.
In Scorn there is no conventional plot, but it will be the player who will make his own interpretation of the events. It has been designed around the idea that the player “is thrown into the world”, a disturbing and mysterious world that will attract us irretrievably. The action takes place in a living world, with an open ending, with different interconnected regions that we can explore in a non-linear way. Each region is a labyrinthine structure with various rooms and paths to discover. It can be said that the environment is a character by itself. Each place has its own setting, puzzles and characters that are part of it. The open ending, the interconnected levels and the feeling of isolation are inspired by Metroid Prime or Dark Souls.
As for virtual reality, its creators are clear that Scorn is a game designed to be played with an HMD, so it will be compatible with Oculus Rift, we will have a complete avatar, there will be no HUD and, if the objective of the campaign is reached, there will be a stretch goal for Sixense STEM. The game is going to be developed for PC, with possible support for PS4 also as stretch goal.
The campaign ends on December 24 and the goal is to raise €200,000. The game exudes quality on all sides, but it is a very difficult goal to achieve in a world saturated with crowdfunding campaigns in which we hope they will manage to make a lot of noise and attract attention. For € 15 we can get the game, which will be released in December 2016.
