Prepare for a scare! As Team Junkfish has contacted us to let us know about their new first person survival horror game 'Monstrum', that's already a big hit with the Steam Greenlight voters and gained a greenlight success. Set aboard a vast and derelict ship with untold horrors, you must use your skills to avoid deadly traps and environmental hazards to escape this deadly place. But be warned, you are not alone, a horrible monster is not far behind and if you don't avoid, you'll end up just another corpse on this menacing ship of horrors.
According to Junkfish, Monstrum combes permadeath, a variety of different hunters and a procedurally generated ship that changes its layout every time, Monstrum is a challenging and punishing game that aims to be a truly replayable horror experience.
Monstrum will be available for early access release on Windows, with Mac, Linux 29th Jan and Oculus Rift support coming late. Certainly one of the scariest trailers we've seen, I certainly do need a new pair of pants!
Multiple Pursuers - Three different monster types, each with different behaviours and tactics means you'll need to find out what you're up against before deciding on your plan. Will you be able to work your way out of an ambush or a direct attack after being spotted? And will the same actions work each time?
Procedural Arena - Each time you load up the game the ship will have a different layout, putting the player's navigation skills to the test.
Escape Routes - Choose from multiple escape routes, each of which will require a different combination of items and methods to use, changing with the layout of the ship.
Dangerous Environment - Even while not being chased you will need to be on your guard, as the ship will be riddled with traps and hazards, ranging from simple alarms that alert the monster to lethal threats.
Distractions - Use whatever you can find to try and distract the monster to lure it away from you. Leave the lights on in a room you've just left, turn on a radio down the hall, throw items down the stairs to make noise, do what you need to avoid detection. And if that fails...
Hiding - Hide in lockers, under furniture, behind boxes, and hope your fellow passenger wanders on by. And if that fails as well...
Permadeath - Death is death. Get killed in Monstrum and you'll be starting again. In a different ship, possibly against a different monster. Good luck. Start running.
