The PC gaming market is still running strong, despite what some big name companies like id Software think. There are a number of companies committed to bringing a fun and new game experience to those who still prefer to wield a keyboard and mouse. One such company is Intoxicate Studios, who is set to release their game, Afterfall: InSanity this November.
A blend of Dead Space with a bit of F.E.A.R. mixed in, Afterfall: InSanity offers an interesting and terrifying story based in the near future. Check out the trailer and screenshots brlow.
Afterfall: InSanity takes place during an alternate timeline that starts at the end of World War II, where new superweapons and WMDs have been developed. One such weapon, known as “Entropy”, was on its way to a Spanish wasteland to be tested, but the flight carrying the weapon never made it to its destination. Even worse, a rather large explosion resulted due to the “Entropy” being jostled around, causing chemical reactions and hence, big boom. As a result, World War III takes place with nuclear weapons being launched every which way.
Luckily, a program developed by the Polish government called “Project Afterfall” provides underground shelter from bad things like radiation fallout and things that can come about from said radiation fallout, like mutants. Brought up to speed, the game takes place in 2032, from the perspective of psychiatrist Albert Tokaj who is investigating “Confinement Syndrome”. Check out the trailer below.
What some players might see some similarities to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, especially with how reassuring the protagonist’s identity is in a world full of madness and horrible things. You can also check out some of the screenshots below to better understand the game’s atmosphere.
Intoxicate Studios might have a pretty interesting game straight out of left field that will be well worth investigating.
Afterfall: InSanity will be releasing in November 2011 for PC with further plans to port the game to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
