Game release: “>observer_” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

Fear has a new name in Bloober Team SA‘s cyberpunk horror adventure >observer_.

Survival horror games can evoke strong emotions in the audience, even more so than most movies, and considering how the developer’s Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear: Inheritance played with expectations, their newest title might go even further, especially with the involvement of Rutger Hauer.

Known for his role as a replicant in Blade Runner, there’s no better actor than him to make the cyberpunk fiction a reality, and a very bleak one it is. Playing as Daniel Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, one hacks and invades suspects’ minds. In the future of 2084, people have turned to drugs, VR, and neural implants in order to get away from the new reality, but thinking, feeling, and remembering can be used in a court of law. So on the one hand, it all looks and sounds like Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi thriller, and on the other hand, the nightmares than can be hacked into feel very much like the survival horror only the creative minds of the Polish development team can provide. In short: it seems to be another mindblowing and frightening storytelling experience like no other.

The game is now available on PC as well as on consoles. If one owns Layers of Fear on GOG, then one can get >observer_ with a 20% loyalty discount that will last until August 22, 11AM UTC.

    Please. I beg you.

    Stop publishing posts about games I really want and making my backlog even bigger than it already is. 😉
