Shades Of Sanity is a forthcoming “psychological horror game”, which means that rather than being a straight up BOO, YOU’RE DEAD action horror game, you face creepy creepy environments and unreliable experiences of MADNESS. It’s a sort of Gone Home with serious derangement. The developers explain: “With only limited meds to cope Joe explores the house, learning that each previous resident is somehow connected to him, and each has met a horrible fate. Eventually his meds run out and you are left with primitive methods to cope with the strange and surreal visions, hoping that if you close your eyes or look away they’ll disappear. But even innocent scenes could be feeding a deeper delusion.” Yikes!
A new trailer shows off the early part of the game, below.
The cheery chappy doing the voiceover is a bit at odds with the atmosphere, perhaps.
The game has a currently active Kickstarter.
