The PlayStaiton 3 and PlayStation Vita are set to get a heck of a lot spookier this July as Superflat Games announces the impending release of haunting indie darling, Lone Survivor.
If you aren’t flipping your lid over this news, then maybe you haven’t got the 411 on the indie game, Lone Survivor just yet. To that end, I offer up this helpful trailer, posted today on the PlayStation Blog.
Basically, Lone Survivor is what you would have got were a Super Nintendo developer decided to try to craft a game as psychologically unsettling as, say, something from the Silent Hill franchise. Superflat’s Jasper Byrne decided to wait until this modern age of gaming to craft his game, however, meaning horror fans in the mood for a touch of retro are in for a real treat.
“But what is Lone Survivor?” asks Byrne. “For those who missed it the first time round, this is a psychological-survival-adventure, where the choice of how to survive is up to you. It’s the last record of our nameless, masked protagonist, holed-up in a city full of diseased monsters, starving and exhausted.”
While plenty of additional details can be found at the above linked blog post, a price has not yet been announced. Lone Survivor goes for 10 bucks on Steam, though, so somewhere in that area is probably a safe bet. But no matter what Lone Survivor costs when it releases this July, Byrne promises it’ll come packed with all new features and that buying it on one Sony platform will make it available on the other at no additional cost.
“To top it off, I’ve secretly been devoting a lot of time and resources into adding additional content into the game, initially exclusive to PS3 and PS Vita,” Byrne continues. “As well as Trophies, Cross-Buy and Cross-Play support, the PS version will feature 19 new items, new dialogue with all NPCs, two extensive new side quests and a brand new ‘Yellow’ ending, featuring an exclusive piece of music.”
