UnFold games have released new details about their upcoming psychological horror title DARQ as well as revealing a new teaser trailer for the creepy title – you can check it out below:
“DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd’s misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.
In DARQ, sound plays a very important role. There are sections of the game that take place in absolute darkness and in order to navigate the environment, Lloyd has to rely on the location of sounds.”
It sounds great, offering a unique twist on the survival horror formula with it’s physics bending gameplay. I love the visual style and eerie vibes the game gives off – you can see that it’s going to rely on freaking the gamer out with genuine frightening moments as opposed to blood and guts. Sounds good to me.
DARQ is currently seeking approval on Steam Greenlight – if you want to see it on Steam you can approve it through this link. Alternatively, the game is also seeking funding on IndieGoGo – you can access that through this link.
DARQ is due for release sometime in 2016 on PC, Mac and Linux – keep your eyes peeled for more details in the future.
