Gamersyde Preview: SOMA

The guys at Frictional Games were kind enough to send us a preview build of SOMA, whose release is still planned for September 22. After a few hours in their new hellish world, we can offer you a few gameplay videos and our first impressions about the game in audio form.
Note: The extracts we used for the video preview are the same as the direct feed footage you'll find below.

I am not sold this. Aesthetically I don't find it that interesting & the game play looks like it might be kind of boring.

Gonna be interesting to see if they manage to make the robots as creepy as the noises and glimpses of silhouettes of Amnesia. But then, i suppose Frictional has always focused on storytelling and atmosphere. This looks like it'll hopefully deliver on that :)

    nostradamus @Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (2 Hours ago)
