Today, co-developer and publisher IMGN.PRO (developer best known for Kholat) and co-developer UndeadScout announced that their horror game Husk will launch worldwide on PC February 3, 2017.
For those that don’t know: Husk is a Silent Hills and Alan Wake inspired survival horror game about “harm, pain, and seeking forgiveness” in the mysterious and abandoned town of Shivercliff. In it you play as Matthew Palmer, who has to piece together why everyone is gone, including his daughter and wife.
The storyline is said to touch on problems of domestic violence and alcohol addiction and run around 4-5 hours long. As for the gameplay, much of it consists of walking around and exploring Shivercliff, but the game’s Steam description does say there is some combat (even boss battles) on offer, as well as riddles/puzzles to solve.
Łukasz Noculak of UndeadScout had the following to say about the announcement:
“We are extremely excited that in less than a month players all over the world will be able to experience our debut game – the result of our cooperation with IMGN.PRO. In our newest trailer, we unveil some secrets about the main plot. Drawing on the elements of oneiric horror, in Husk we strive to touch upon real and often very painful problems. I’d rather not reveal any more details right now –you’ll soon be able to discover them on your own!”
