You’ve all heard about 1GAM,one game currently being developed has caught my eye. Hideous, created by a group of students at the University of Lincoln, shows a lot of promise.
Imagine Slender Man on steroids – the game so far supports up to 10 players on the same LAN, each person playing as hideous deformed creatures trying to make their way around a dark scary maze. The objective of the game is to avoid other players as looking at them will make your character go insane, and eventually die. You’re thinking… Well it can’t be that hard? Including avoiding other players, you also have to find and feed on the corpses of other dead players or starvation will set in.
The above screen-shot shows part of the maze, the detail is quite impressive, it emanates that ‘spooky’ feeling you get when playing horror games like slender. The image below shows the “summoning Circle” where all players start at the beginning of the game, located in the ethereal realm above the maze.
An amazing idea combined with a pretty impressive environment and terrifying atmosphere, just playing the game on your own without any other plays still seems pretty scary.
I hope you are all looking forward to this game as much as I am, feel free to have a go at the latest build, post any comments or even ideas for the game here or at the developers own website. I will try to keep you up to date on the game’s progress. Hopefully it should be completed before the end of the month. [Oxsprings Omniverse]
