Horror games have taken a step away from the classic styles, much of the scares are hinged on blood, gore or quick jump scares. Scratching your head you may be thinking but wait didn’t the classic horror games also include these elements? Why yes you would be correct but the way it was implemented was much more seamless. When walking down a corridor something didn’t jump out every other foot step. When you were being scared it wasn’t a scene muddled with bloody bodies and intense grotesque scenes of weird images. Being scared was an actual chore and you had to actually get up to turn the lights on and take a break. If you ever had to take a friend to the bathroom because you were scared kudos to you.
Quiet Jazz plays in your ear a soothe somber tone is set as you feel at ease but something seems amiss you feel too comfortable. OSome Studio won’t let that last for long with their new title White Night a title that will flash back to the future of horror games. Horror that will hang on the story and game play alone not gory visuals. Check out the video below to see just a glimpse of how a black&white style Noir game will have you stumbling around a darkened mansion. Light is your friend in the shadows lurks a threat of which you aren’t sure but know you don’t want to meet.
White Night lures horror fans back to the old-school style the genre was built on, focusing on gripping tension, compelling mystery and clever puzzle design. Stranded alone in a seemingly abandoned mansion, players will have to explore the estate and confront its tortured past to dispel the spirits that haunt its halls. White Night draws from the classic themes of the jazz age and film noir storytelling to bring its rich world and atmosphere to life, reinforced by chilling sound effects, music and voice acting.
White Night is now available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Network and Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam for $14.99. It will be available for the same price on March 6 on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, through the Xbox Games Store.
