A new upcoming title from Frictional, the creators of Amnesia and Penumbra. A sci-fi horror game called SOMA.

„Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
- Philip K. Dick

SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, creators of the groundbreaking Amnesia and Penumbra series.

Coming to PC and PS4 in 2015.

The radio has gone silent on PATHOS-2. As isolation bears down on the staff of the remote research facility, strange things are happening.

Machines are taking on human traits and alien constructions have started to interfere with routine. The world around them is turning into a nightmare.

The only way out is to do something unimaginable.

Here's a gameplay teaser :

I can confirm it is real! It's fully functioning. This is a GOG release, so there is no DRM. It runs at a solid 60 fps on my machine (GTX 750Ti , i5-4670S) on high settings. I have to keep Vsync enabled, otherwise there is very noticeable tearing. The game has keyboard and mouse support, you can change mouse sensitivity and you can rebind the controls. You can enable subtitles. The game runs stable so far with zero crashes. The graphics are not spectacularly beautiful, but they are OK for a 2015 game. Overall, this is definitely a recommended download. I suggest you buy the game after trying it out and liking it.

What are first impressions about gameplay?

The game really gets under your skin, has much more intelligent, subtle, and sticking with you more horror than Amnesia or Penumbra did, and the game has an amazing story where I don't want to spoil for people about to play but the game is surprising, in many ways.

Started playing myself and holy **** the tension is thick.

In typical Frictional games fashion you have no weapons, you can only avoid the enemies. Story blows my mind.
