Engineer Imogen Reed is back again in this new live action teaser for Frictional Games’ next mysterious video game, Soma. This time Reed interacts with an artificial intelligent machine that seems to think it’s human.
Things get real interesting as the experiment continues with another subject. I have no idea what all this is gearing towards but I know I’m excited by the possibilities of this science fiction game.
The company behind the Amnesia video game series, Frictional Games, has started to tease their next project: a sci-fi mystery game called Soma.
A website for the game updated with this live action video entitled “Vivarium” which depicts the video documentation of an engineer named Imogen Reed messing around with some sort of quarantined machinery.
What this means for you is that you can get your hands on it right now for only $13.49 and provide feedback to the developers that could influence the final retail version of the game.
The small six person team that is developing the game is hoping to get feedback from the community so they can fine tune the game to provide the most fulfilling (and spooky) experience.
As game designer Craig Hubbard puts it, “We deliberately chose to make a game that doesn’t explain everything to you. You’ll find clues about what’s happening and what befell the colony, but it’ll be up to you to put the pieces together. It’s challenging to strike a balance where players are getting just the right amount of information. Too much and you can lose the sense of accomplishment. Too little and it can get frustrating. We’re hoping the community can help us with the fine tuning.”
Here’s a tasty and creepy community submission from OTL Gaming Reader Michael Huffam:
One of the greatest cakes I have seen and makes me run away before eating it…. My friend has just started her Cake Studio company right in her home, and probably one of the most talented young women I know when it comes to baking.
