When you think about some of the all time great “moods” in games, you’re sure to find both Bioshock and Dead Space on the list. Luckily for us, a bunch of talent from both of those teams have joined together to form a development studio they call The Deep End Games. The Deep End Games created a Kickstarter last year to get their horror title Perception off the ground for PC. Today, they confirmed it will be coming to PlayStation 4 as well
Who Says Being Blind Has to Be a Disability?
The jump to PlayStation 4 is courtesy of Deep End Games entering into a publishing partnership with Feardemic. Bill Gardner, Creative Director at The Deep End Games, said the requests to bring Perception to PlayStation 4 was “overwhelming”. With the new deal in place, Bill and his team are “stocked to make this happen.”
If you’re unaware of Perception up to this point, here is the title’s synopsis:
“Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that tells the story of Cassie, a blind heroine who uses her extraordinary hearing and razor-sharp wits to unravel the mysteries of an abandoned estate that haunts her dreams.
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 needs 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.”
There’s isn’t a release date yet for Perception in sight. Hopefully we’ll get a look at it sometime this year.
