Perception, a game currently hoping for backing on Kickstarter, has released a new trailer showing the game's unique take on first person horror and adventure.
The game puts players in the role of a blind woman by the name of Cassie who has been having recurring dreams about an abandoned house. Eager to find answers, she uses her heightened senses to compensate for her lost sight and solve the house's mysteries.
The trailer shows how players will navigate the environment, with Cassie's aptitude with echolocation filling in a vision of her surroundings. Sounds inherent in the house appear to impact this image, with wind flowing through the image. Cassie uses a click to fill in the next section to explore, and is in possesses a sharp sense of humour to combat her eery surroundings.

Perception has until Friday at 1:01 am New Zealand time to reach its goal and possibly some of its stretch goals.
