Perception puts you in the shoes of a blind woman who must use her other heightened senses to solve the mystery of this haunted house and escape the deadly spirits that reside within.
Crafted by the veteran developers behind BioShock, BioShock Infinite and Dead Space, Perception has set out to offer a new experience on first person narrative games.
After months of research seeking the house from her nightmares, Cassie discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, Massachusetts, the Estate at Echo Bluff. Once there, Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than she dreamed. A ghastly 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.
While Cassie doesn’t have an arsenal of weapons, she does have her wit, her cane and her smart phone. Armed with these tools, she’ll search for clues to unravel history as she navigates her way through the home via echolocation. But the house and its deadly Presence go to great lengths to prevent her from deciphering its secrets. And yet, they won’t let her leave either.
The game will take place of many eras, showing the house age, as well as going back to it’s origins whilst you try to decipher how it evolved, and how the evil that inhabits this place came to be, and right the wrong that has been done here.
The game definitely looks interesting, with a visual style that’s pretty unique, showing the world as a representation of outlines and sounds. It’s quite beautiful, in a terrifying way.
