A once-happy family are haunted by darkness, and it’s down to you to explore the mystery behind it in the upcoming psychological horror game from Caustic Reality and Blowfish Studios, Infliction. Are you prepared for the nightmares it’ll unleash upon Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch later this year?
Infliction sees you wandering through an interactive nightmare set within the confines of a once-happy household. The aim is to piece together the mystery behind a harrowing series of events while also struggling to survive encounters with an entity that relentlessly stands in the way of finding absolution.
The home you’ll explore is crystallized by tragedy, which becomes increasingly apparent as the heartbreaking secrets hidden within messages, artwork, household objects, and other vestiges of domestic life, unravel. Uncover clues and use items in order to unlock new paths and make discoveries while doing everything possible to avoid that damned 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 – whatever it takes to stay alive.
Infliction couples a story-driven approach to horror with a dynamic atmosphere to produce what’s expected to be an unsettling and unpredictable first-person experience that deals in mature subject matters. Mixing familiar elements of everyday life with the supernatural, the developers aim to deliver a terrifying otherworldly adventure that really hits frighteningly close to home.
“Infliction explores fears that manifested after my wife and I started a family,” said Clinton McCleary, Caustic Reality founder and Mission Designer at Blowfish Studios. “I set out to create a horror experience grounded in real-world problems that resonates with players and am looking forward to scaring everyone when we unleash it on consoles later this year.”
The psychologically harrowing experience of Infliction will be available in Q4 2019 via the Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, and Nintendo Switch eShop for £15.99. Do you believe you could handle the scares that Infliction may possess?
