Bloober Team, the folks who brought us Layers of Fear before, will be bringins us the cyberpunk horror game Observer this summer, Bloober Team’s Rafal Basaj confirmed. The game will be launching on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The game seems to take some cues from the Black Mirror episode about augmented reality, asking players the question- what would they do if their fears were hacked? The game is supposed to be a lot more cerebral and psychologically manipulative than other horror games on the market. I hope it plays with players’ expectations of fear, rather than being explicit about what they should be afraid of to begin with. In my opinion, that’s where most horror games on the market fail.

It sounds like an intriguing, fascinating game- but not one that I am sure I would have the gumption to play (I’d probably chicken out). What about you? Is this something you’d be interested in picking up?
