Scorn shows atmospheric horror

Scorn shows atmospheric horror

Announced a couple of years ago, Scorn from Ebb Software shows its Giger-esque atmospheric horror with a new trailer (available in very high quality inside). The title is a first-person horror adventure game that will be released in two parts with the first "DASEIN" due in 2017 for PC. You can vote for it on Steam Greenlight, more details after the jump.



UNSETTLING FIRST-PERSON HORROR SCORN COMING TO PC IN 2017
– The game where even changing weapon makes you feel a bit sick, now on Steam Greenlight –


The bowels of a living nightmare – June 30th, 2016

Straight out of the twisted minds at Serbian game developer Ebb Software, SCORN is an uncomfortable creep through an oozing world of organic otherworldly horror. Heading to PC in 2017, support SCORN today on Steam Greenlight.

The first person gameplay in SCORN is a glistening combination of gunplay and puzzle solving, with the environment and the creatures it disgorges doing their utmost to confound your progress. That’s not to say every inhabitant you meet wants to eviscerate you – many don’t care about you one way or the other, but catch them in a bad mood and they’ll try to tear you apart.

All the storytelling happens in-game, with no cut-scenes to distract you from the grisly reality of the living, breathing (throbbing, dripping) world you’re in. But keep your eyes open – the game won’t show you any sympathy if you miss something important on your uneasy travels. Everything has a reason and purpose – you just need to work out what it is.

“We are trying to create something so unsettling it will make you think about the ideas and themes of the game long after you’ve finished playing,” said Ebb Software’s Ljubomir Peklar.

The environments in SCORN are entirely handcrafted, firmly bucking the procedural trend, while its storytelling through gameplay, non-linear narrative, and puzzles on a grand scale turn SCORN into an impressionistic horror show of impressive scope and imagination.

To help the team at Ebb Software manage the massive scope of development on SCORN and get the game in the hands of players quickly, they are planning to release it in two parts, with the first part entitled “DASEIN” coming in 2017.

Scorn! An atmospheric Horror Adventure set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry.

The Strong will know. XD

Very very H. R. Giger. I would think it was his game if he was still alive.

Looks very Alien/Prometheus like.

Based on the artist who came up with the concept art that was used in the Alien films and Prometheus. extremely H.R. Giger copy of the art...

Graphics wise it looks interesting however there is far too much lighting...not enough volume shadows...needs some volume fog and mists and more to set a proper atmosphere.

Are you even a true fan? Did you pre-order the collectors edition and pay double just to support them!? Otherwise, you don't get it. You are not a true fan!

Ok, being a dick aside, i think this looks nice. Yeah, looks very Giger-ish. In a good way. Also makes me think about Tormentum, but i suppose that was quite giger-inspired as well. The only part i'm not so sure i like is that they mention gunplay. Would probably have been more interested in this if it was a full on puzzle game.

Maybe someone is trying to get into similar design as Mr. Giger did, but yeah...he is doing it damn right. I love it! I have some Dark Seed feeling from this.

My favourite artist. I'm really sad he's gone.

One of the best videogame trailers of 2016.

Sure, everything screams Alien/Giger. But the gun instantly reminded me of the David Cronenberg Movie "eXistenZ". Very nightmarish, weird and disgusting in an interesting way. I can really recommend it.

Well then... The environment / setting has me interested. I will be interested to see what game play is like.

Looks like the love child of the ship from Prometheus and the gluttony level from Dante's Inferno
