>observer_ is clearly another game to keep an eye on if you're into story-driven titles. Although we haven't played more than an hour and a half, we can say it's a pretty intense experience, the work on the atmosphere being really impressive. Sound design and voice acting are top notch, with Rutger Hauer playing the role of the main character, and the game world is both intriguing and spooky. After Layers of Fear, the Blooper Team seems to confirm their talent, with added gameplay mechanics to make the player more involved. Indeed, some sequences require to fully explore the environment looking for clues, while others allow to choose what Daniel Lazarski (the protagonist) will say to the NPCs he will meet.

buying this once it hits PSN tomorrow. hated layers of fear. thought it was shit and completely tame in the fear department (ironic given it's title) so i wasn't particularly optimistic about their next game. but this looks really good. if this can pull me into it's world and story the way soma did, i'll be more than happy. i hear it's a decent length too. 9-10 hours.

I've been interested on this game ever since te first trailer at the E3's PC Gaming Show last year. Looks so great and feels like a kind of Blade Runner-esque game. This feels very grim, dark and oppresive.

finally hit PSN. £7 more expensive than the PC version. £6 more expensive than the xbox version. and if you have PS+ the game is STILL £3 more expensive than the xbox version. apparently playstation tax is a thing.
