Frictional Games, developer of the spooky Amnesia and Penumbra titles, has revealed what could be the first glimpse of their next project, SOMA. A teaser site discovered last week initially pointed to nextfrictionalgame.com but has now been re-directed to somasystems.org with a single case file available for viewing pleasure.

The case file currently available for viewing offers up a story describing a very strange machine that was discovered during a salvage mission. The machine is described as having "the appearance of a heavily modified monitor fixed to a massive nest of cables and controls." To help with the imagery Frictional Games has provided a live-action video demonstrating the machine, which you can check out below.

Joystiq has delved a bit deeper into the website, offering up a few explanations into the naming conventions of the website's contents.
The case file is called "Vivarium," which is essentially an artificial habitat. Given the reference to a salvage mission, it's possible that Soma (if indeed that is the game's name) could take place in space, or possibly a ravaged Earth. Meanwhile, the word "soma" apparently refers to a ritualistic drink often associated with immortality. Finally, there appears to be a Philip K. Dick quote scrambled in an image on the Soma website: "It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane." The quote is taken from one of Dick's novels, VALIS, which deals with the nature of reality, consciousness and divinity.
It is unclear when exactly the game will be officially revealed, but for now it looks like SOMA might be some type of sci-fi horror title, though hopefully we'll know more soon.

Trailer and theme look pretty sick, hope it's anything but a generic fps.
