Publisher Headup Games and developer Cracked Heads Games have announced Silver Chains, a new first-person horror game set in an abandoned Victorian mansion. It’s currently set for a spring 2019 release window.
According to the press release announcing the game, Silver Chains is certainly a horror game, but one that’s more about story and exploration, rather than survival and combat. Players will follow the story of Peter, who wakes up in the mansion after an accident. As he explores the mansion and solves puzzles, he’ll learn the dark history of the building and discover he’s not in there alone.
Here’s a list of key features provided by the publisher:
- An atmospheric horror experience: photo-realistic & detailed graphics bring the interior of an old abandoned mansion to life and an eerie soundtrack will fully immerse you into the game.
- Story-exploration-game with puzzle- and action elements: Unravel the mysteries of a huge mansion and gain entry into its hidden areas by solving puzzles.
- Beware the dangers lurking in the dark. This evil you cannot fight – run for your life or find a place to hide: Experience intense feelings of horror as you try to escape from the monster chasing you down.
Here’s a Silver Chains trailer. Try not to get too scared.
Silver Chains will come to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in spring 2019.
