Get Ready for “Draugen”: A Survival Horror Adventure Game

While I am just starting out (again) with “Dragon Age 2” and killing yet another portion of my free time with “The Sims 3”, a news about an upcoming PC game has caught my eye. The game is called “Draugen.”

The year is the early 1920s and you are somewhere in Norway where there is water surrounding the place. Lots of water. The kind that does not make you think of beach parties or summer bonfires. No. It’s the kind that makes you fear that something underneath it is just waiting oh-so-patiently for the right moment to come up and… go after you.

Here’s what the game’s write-up says:

“The first teaser trailer of Red Thread Games’ Draugen — a first-person survival horror adventure set on the northwestern coast of Norway in 1923. Gone Home meets Amnesia in a story inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian fairy tales and national romanticism, Dostoyevsky, Hamsun and H.P. Lovecraft.

A dark and harrowing tale of one man’s descent into madness, as he investigates the disappearance of the inhabitants of a small, Norwegian coastal community in 1923.”

Eager to see the trailer? I thought so.
