Back in 2002, Konami released a video game version of John Carpenter’s The Thing, which was a sequel to his movie. It ended up getting a poor reception, but it showed promise on what horror movie-related video games could be. Years late,r we are starting to see a rise in video games that are either based on or inspired by horror movies. Almost out of nowhere comes the new horror game Distrust.
Distrust is an upcoming survival horror game that aims to draw from the inspiration of John Carpenter’s film The Thing. The game was developed by Alawar Entertainment and will be heading to Steam later this summer. It already sounds amazing!
The synopsis is:
A helicopter crash left a group of explorers stranded near an Arctic base. As they try to find a way back, all they are doing is sinking deeper into a nightmare scenario. When they sleep, they attract a terrifying force that sucks the life out of their bodies, but the longer they battle exhaustion and stay awake, the less likely they are to survive…
As the survivors try to sleep just enough to stave off fatigue without dying, they slowly go mad and eventually reach the point where they can no longer trust their senses. In time, they can’t even tell the difference between reality and a hallucination.
Does this sound intriguing to you? If so, you don’t have to wait to long. The game will be available August 23rd, but you can play the demo on Steam today!
