Future of Play Direct Showcase 2022 Highlights
A narrative-driven side-scroller set in a haunted cybernetic house, Psychroma piqued our interest for its gloomy, eye-catching art style. It charts the story of a digital medium as they face up to the past and piece together fractured memories to unravel the mysteries of a harrowing psychological experiment gone awry. There’s time manipulation, digital exorcism, an AI on the fritz, and plenty more besides.
Achimostawinan Games unveiled Hill Agency: PURITYdecay during the Future of Play Showcase 2022.
