Ikai, a first-person psychological horror game being made by developer Endflame and published by PM Studios, has finally received a release date.
The horror game will now be out on March 29, both physically and digitally, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, as well as for PC via Steam, and is available for pre-order. The physical editions of the game will also come packaged with a postcard and stickers as a part of the launch edition exclusive bonuses.
Ikai aims to deliver the feel of classic psychological horror games, where the main character is defenseless and incapable to attack any of the evil creatures you facee. The game, however, plans on creating a sense of helplessness by making players face your fears directly, instead of fleeing or attacking.
The game is currently available to pre-order for $29.99. PC players can currently try out a slice of the game to get a feel of it by playing the demo, which is downloadable from Ikai’s Steam page.
We also conducted an interview with Laura Ripoll, producer and designer at Endflame, where she talked about the various aspects of the upcoming psychological horror game last year.
