We’ve seen quite a few great mystery horror video game titles in our day and plenty of those releases came to fruition after the developers were inspired by Silent Hill and Twin Peaks. The two entertainment mediums shared viewers with a sense of mystery and the dark unknown. Today we’re learning about another survival-horror title that aims to provide gamers with the same tone and thrills next month.
Husk is the upcoming video game title in questioned. Being developed by UndeadScout and IMGN.PRO, gamers will be set back into the year 1995. Players will take on the role of Matthew Palmer, a man who awakens after a train crash only to find that he’s alone in the town of Shivercliff where he must track down his missing wife and daughter.
According to the video game trailer narration, Matthew Palmer came from an abusive household which may have attributed to the fearless man he is within the in-game present day. Rather than turning back and fleeing from the mystery and horror Shivercliff houses, Matthew calmly loads his magnum and prepares for a fight.
That’s not to say this is an action-horror title with survival-horror elements. Instead, gamers will have to go through a series of puzzles, fight off various monsters, survive boss fights, and keep track of their inventory.
As of right now, Husk will launch on February 3, 2017, for the PC platform. Being that it’s inspired by some truly fan-favorite thrillers, we’re interested in seeing just how the titles play out. For now, take a look at the video game trailer above and the game gallery down below.
