With the unfortunate break from gaming news I had to take also came the inevitable realization that I also missed a great many releases. Not sure how far I’ll go back, but maybe there will be a few titles you haven’t heard from. And if you have and even played them, you can share your opinion with me… while I’m trying to catch up on the games which will be reviewed in the coming days/weeks.
One of those interesting games is THE BROTHERHOOD‘s STASIS, a point-and-clicker that gives off the cold air of isolation and fear. This might have to do with the fact that the atmospheric soundtrack was done by the same man who did Sanitarium, a horror game that was simply insane in both presentation and storytelling. STASIS shares the same DNA, only with a sci-fi twist in the same vein as Alien Isolation, but also with a movie like Event Horizon.
Make no mistake, this is still a fully fledged adventure game with inventory-based puzzles, and it’s isometric, not first-person. However, the creepy creatures infesting an abandoned research facility in space, failed experiments, etc. will probably keep you glued to the screen in terror. At least that’s what the trailer promises, and considering how amazing this looks and sounds (especially since it was only done by two guys), this could very well be the Alien Isolation with a puzzle-heavy touch fans of the genre have been waiting for.
But the game also comes with a rather steep price tag (for an indie game), so don’t expect anything like a tenner. You can also shell out more and get the deluxe edition that includes a digital art book, soundtrack and four exclusive 4k and bonus wallpapers.
