Deep End, a studio made up of veteran developers who have lent a hand to the development of classic titles like BioShock and Dead Space, are hard at work prepping their debut title Perception. It's an intriguing game where players take on the role of Cassie, a blind heroine that can use echolocation to visualise her surroundings. And what better way to do that than explore an abandoned mansion filled with mystery!
Perception was successfully funded via a Kickstarter campaign in 2015. And now thanks to a new partnership with Feardemic, Perception will also be making its way to PS4 in addition to the already announced PC version.
For those that need a refresher here's the debut trailer that showcases the stunning 'echolocation' visuals.
The developers made the announcement via the PlayStation Blog where they gave a quick rundown on the premise.
Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that tells the story of Cassie, a blind heroine who uses her extraordinary hearing and razor-sharp wits to unravel the mysteries of an abandoned estate that haunts her dreams.
After months of research, she discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, MA. Once there, Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than her nightmares. A ghostly Presence has tormented its inhabitants over generations, and it now hunts Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or become one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way by tapping her cane and can “see” via echolocation. She needs to avoid detection and uses ambient sounds of the house to help her navigate or uses objects to create distractions. Every sound creates a visual. But there is a cost…sound will attract your enemies and reveal your location.
So yeah, chalk this up as another 2017 title to keep and eye out for. Or, ear.
