Bloober Team has shared with us a brand new video for its upcoming project Observer, and we’re left feeling both excited and creeped out in equal measure.
If you haven’t heard about this one before, Observer has been ominously described as a “horror game designed to disturb you”. Events take place in the year 2084 and you play as Daniel Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an ‘Observer’, whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. The game actually launched on other platforms last summer, going on to receive ‘very positive’ reviews on Steam.
This new video (which we’ve shared above) gives us a much deeper look into the game’s world, showing off exactly how your mind-hacking skills will be put to work. Observer comes from the same team behind Layers Of Fear: Legacy – which we described as Switch’s “first great horror game” – so we have pretty high hopes for this one.
– Observe and Report – You are Dan Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, and part of a corporate-funded police unit whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. In this future, anything you think, feel, or remember can be used against you in a court of law.
– A Dark Dystopia – The year is 2084. If you somehow survived the Nanophage, odds are you were killed in the War. Those who live have turned to drugs, VR, neural implants— anything to distract themselves from this new reality.
– Interactive Insanity – As you hack into the unstable minds of criminals and victims to look for clues, you will relive their darkest fears, forcing you to question your own reality — and your sanity.
– Take the Horror With You! – >observer_ for Nintendo Switch uses all of the unique features of the system, including full Joy-Con support, Touchscreen, and the option to play both in docked and in handheld modes.
We’re still yet to receive a solid release date for the game’s Switch release, although more concrete information is expected to be shared early next year. We’ll make sure to update you when we have more.
