Publisher Ultimate Games and developer RG Crew have announced Anthology of Fear, a first-person psychological horror game featuring three unique stories, each unrelated in plot and with distinctive gameplay elements. It will launch for PC via Steam in the first quarter of 2020, followed by Switch a few months later.
“Each of the three stories are different—of course there are also different characters, time periods, and so on,” said director and chief designer Hubert Zatorski in a press release. “The player thus receives three smaller games in one. Each of them will provide different experiences. Our game will be diverse and ambiguous. It won’t be any problem for fans of the series Silent Hill and Outlast to find themselves in Anthology of Fear. The same goes for titles in the style of Layers of Fear, Alan Wake, or even Hunt: Showdown.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
The world that surrounds us is not always obvious. Sometimes the weirdest, unpredictable and unreal events have logical and very mundane explanations.
Anthology of Fear is three unique stories of such events taking place in different epochs and realities.
Take on the role of three heroes, control their actions and experience the horror of the early 20th century in the remote areas of Russia, contemporary drama taking place in an ordinary house, and unreal events between shreds of reality.
Each episode is unique gameplay with a set of different features. From the mere expulsion of the world, through hunting, to the struggle for one’s own existence.
- Three unique stories – Each of them is different locations and different from each previous style of the game.
- Gameplay deriving solutions from the classics of the genre – Do not expect simple and boring jumpscare. The mood of the game is built here by the atmosphere.
- Psychological horror – Nothing that surrounds you must be obvious. Get deeper into the symbolism of the threads of history and get to know what really happened.
- Exploration motivated by a story – The story will force you to explore each of the worlds of the game. Get to know all the stories and the laws that govern them.
