You may remember us interviewing Caustic Reality about their upcoming horror game Infliction at PAX Aus 2019. Well now, we have a firm release date of February 25th, 2020 as Infliction: Extended Cut. If you’re unfamiliar with Infliction, check out the interview for a lot of in-depth information but if you’d like a quick rundown, we can provide that too:
Wander through an interactive nightmare set within the confines of a once-happy household. Piece together the mystery behind a harrowing series of events while struggling to survive encounters with an entity that relentlessly stands in the way of finding absolution.
Explore a home crystalized by tragedy and uncover the heartbreaking secrets hidden within messages, artwork, household objects, and other vestiges of domestic life. Uncover clues and use items to unlock new paths and make discoveries while doing everything possible to avoid the malevolent presence inhabiting the residence. Hide under tables or beneath beds and harness light sources like camera flashes to stun the spirit and momentarily elude its pursuit.
Infliction couples a story-driven approach to horror with a dynamic atmosphere to produce an unsettling and unpredictable first-person experience that deals in mature subject matter. Imbuing familiar elements of everyday life with the supernatural, Infliction delivers a terrifying otherworldly adventure that hits frighteningly close to home.Source: Causticreality.com
