Moscow-based Indie developer M3at Bicycle has just announced CONTAMINANT, a story driven-survival horror game full of intricate riddles and dark surrealistic atmosphere.
The game relies on conventional horror-genre tropes and takes inspiration from Resident Evil Remakes in part of gameplay, but as for narrative, the game constructs a nuanced and equivocal story inspired by post-horror/neo horror movies (Get Out, Us, It Follows) with body-horror elements.
The story follows protagonist Charlotte, who becomes trapped inside a grim factory where she has to battle with disfigured and vicious creatures, interact with items that defy the laws of nature, and deal with the consequences of mankind’s flirtation with other realities.
As the story progresses, Charlotte visits two parallel realms: Trop – an abstract world of memories, thoughts, and ideas and the gloomy grotesque world of Metaphor – a winter night forest, where darkness and violence reign among creatures vaguely resembling people.
CONTAMINANT is coming to Steam, with the release date currently TBA. You can check out the official Announcement Trailer below.
