Moonville Entertainment, who previously gave us a faithful re-rendering of the dreaded apartment from Silent Hill 4, have released a teaser for their upcoming title; Conscious Mind. Very little information about it is out at the moment, other than that it draws its inspiration from Japanese-style psychological horror games. To quote the developers themselves, it’s: “A game that’s different and standing [sic] out from the mass, by not following any rules or current trends”. Make of that what you will.
It’s quite long for a teaser, featuring behind the scenes extras and some lovely piano music. It lurks below:
What to make of that then? We can glean that it appears to have elements of slow exploration, as the character makes their way through the abandoned corridors. Also, a clear element of surreal landscapes appears at the end. What does this mean for our protagonist’s sanity? I do so love a game that makes you question your character’s perception of the world. The focus on the nailgun does imply that it will be used at some point, and I doubt that it will be for some home repair.
