Perception – the Kickstarted horror game, featuring devs from BioShock and Dead Space – will be making its way to PlayStation 4. Developer Deep End announced this week that they’ve partnered with a new publishing label called Feardemic, which is focused on bringing “unique psychological horror games.”
“Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that tells the story of Cassie, a blind heroine who uses her extraordinary hearing and razor-sharp wits to unravel the mysteries of an abandoned estate that haunts her dreams,” creative director at Deep End, Bill Gardner wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
“After months of research, she discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, MA. Once there, Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than her nightmares,” he continued. “A ghostly Presence has tormented its inhabitants over generations, and it now hunts Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or become one of its victims.”
Players can “see” their environment by tapping Cassie’s cane, in what is essentially echolocation. Every sound creates a visual, but it can also reveal your location to enemies.
No date has been given for Perception, but it will arrive for PC and PlayStation 4 owners.
