here they lie

We’re thrilled to finally announce Here They Lie, a surreal horror game built for the PlayStation 4 and enhanced by the unique functionality of PlayStation VR. We’re working in collaboration with Sony Santa Monica to bring this dark psychological horror experience to the masses this fall. Here They Lie’s psychological nature and focus on narrative potency create a mind-bending, first-person experience intended to take root in your psyche and fester long after its conclusion. The strange, yet recognizable nature of the world “creates an overall sense of uncertainty and fear in indirect ways rather than lazily signposting the emotions with piles of rotting bodies or a few jump scares,” according to Engadget’s E3 preview.

surreal, psychological, existential horror
