The Astronauts, a Polish indie studio founded by former People Can Fly (Bulletstorm, Painkiller) devs Adrian Chmielarz, Andrzej Poznanski and Michal Kosieradzki has released the first official trailer for its debut title, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
We've seen quite a bit of in-game imagary
from this one already, but damn do those environments look even nicer in motion. The game is being developed on the Unreal Engine, using a design technique called photogrammetry, where real-world objects are painstaking scanned and imported into the game engine and stylised by artists.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a first-person weird fiction horror in which you - Paul Prospero, an occult detective - try to solve the mystery of a missing boy named Ethan Carter.
The trailer is a real-time in-game capture (PC), just with the cameras set to tell a certain story.
Contrasting the lush scenery is a glimpse of ugliness from the game's mysterious narrative at the end.
The Astronauts are targeting "third quarter of 2014" for the game's launch on PC.
