Mars based horror Moons of Madness announced
A brand new psychological horror game by the name of Moons of Madness has been announced by Norwegian developer Rocket Pocket.
Set on the red planet itself, and taking inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft, Moons of Madness is a first person ‘narrative driven’ game that puts you in the boots of astronaut Shane Newehart.
Posted on a scientific outpost on Mars, players will experience the supernatural events that occur on the station and their bizarre sanity bending consequences.
The H.P. Lovecraft influence isn’t just a passé nod either, as the press release explains below.
“In Moons of Madness, Rock Pocket Games integrates the cosmicism style found in H.P. Lovecraft’s hallmark to the game’s narrative, environment and gameplay; the sense that ordinary life is a thin shell over a reality that is so alien and abstract in comparison that merely contemplating it would damage the sanity of the ordinary person.”
A trailer has also been released, which you can view below.
Moons of Madness will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2018.
