Phobia Game Studio’s Carrion has done fairly well since launching on July 23rd, selling more than 200,000 copies. The reverse horror game has been in development since October 2017 and is now available on Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. On Xbox Game Pass, it’s been experienced by “hundreds of thousands of players” as per publisher Devolver Digital.
The story focuses on an organism that escapes confinement and begins venturing through the facility, devouring all in its path. As it recovers more of its genetic code, the organism regains more of its abilities while growing larger in size. There’s a slight Metroidvania aspect to the gameplay but for all intents and purposes, Carrion is about being the monster and ruthlessly dispatching foes.
