Finally, players will be able to get a taste of the horrors awaiting in Asylum, the upcoming adventure game from Senscape. An interactive teaser has gone online in honor of the developers showcasing the game at GamesCom this week.
The teaser features a playable portion of Asylum and a brief glimpse into one of the largest virtual buildings ever put in a game: the Hanwell Mental Institute. If you haven’t been to facethehorror yet I highly recommend it, the site itself has a creept atmosphere and the teaser definitely helps with that.
Founder of Senscape and creator of Asylum, Agustín Cordes, has this to say about the game:
After four years of production, and still many months of work left, we’re extremely excited to prove that Asylum is real, it’s happening, and it will haunt your nightmares for a long time to come.
In a surprise announcement, legendary adventure game designer Josh Mandel is revealed as the voice of the game’s protagonist, his first serious performance outside the realm of comedy.
The Asylum Interactive Teaser is immediately available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Ubuntu. The download also includes the complete source code of the teaser, which provides an in-depth look at the simple yet powerful Dagon engine Senscape has developed.
Asylum is currently scheduled for release in late 2013.
