Amnesia creators release gameplay footage for their sci-fi horror SOMASOMA


is the new game coming from Amnesia creators Frictional Games and today they’ve released the first piece of gameplay footage.

This first person sci-fi horror title looks like it’s going to be a rather tense experience and it’s been in development now for around three years. According to the creative director Thomas Grip, “SOMA is meant to chill you to your core, and confront you with questions about your very existence.”

“Exploration, survival and the interactive narrative,” adds Grip. “The subject that SOMA will discuss is consciousness. Personally, I find it the most profound questions that it is possible to ask. “How can the feeling of subjective experience arise from a chunk of flesh?” Exploring this further takes us to questions such as “Can machines be conscious?” and “Do we have free will?” It quickly gets very disturbing, and is ideal for a futuristic horror setting. It is the kind of sci-fi that we want to make.”

SOMA is due out on PC in 2015. Watch the video below to find out if you’re chilled to your core.
