OSome Studio’s got a gritty black & white horror tale in the works for consoles and computers with White Night.
As you might have picked up from the trailer, White Night is set in the era of trench coats and fedoras, the 1930’s. A third-person survival horror title, the game has a heavy emphasis on exploration and puzzle-solving, and is loaded with something that the press release dubs “mature tension”. If that means an actually scary adventure and not one that’s just filled with blood and guts, then White Night could really be something of interest for horror gamers. Personally, while some recent horror releases have been very well received, I generally think they rely too heavy on the gore, instead of truly creating a tense and foreboding atmosphere. So as you could probably imagine, I can’t wait to see more on this one.
There’s an interesting hook here too, and one that you don’t see too often in games- light. The matches that you’ll use to explore the creepy old mansion in the video above aren’t unlimited, and you’ll have to manage your inventory if you’d like to make it all the way through the quest, and uncover just what’s lurking in the decrepit old house’s past.
Watch those shadows, White Night is set to hit PC, Mac, and Linux computers, and the PS4 on March 3rd. Xbox One gamers won’t get left out in the cold, rainy night either, but will have to wait till the 6th to creep around the halls in that big ol’ house.
