2w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip posted up a new PS4 trailer video showcasing SOMA on PlayStation 4 dubbed High Pressure today.

To quote: It's time to reveal a secret about our upcoming horror game, SOMA. Before reading any further, take a look at this trailer:

That's right, our next game will be set deep below the water's surface - at the bottom of the sea. It was a decision which came very swiftly; Jens (co-founder of Frictional Games) and I sort of decided it on whim during a meet-up.

But it's something that had been brewing inside us for a long time. Most of our earth is covered in ocean, and yet it's something that we know very little about. It is an incredibly hostile environment filled with strange creatures, and it is right on our door step.





Most of the ocean is devoid of sunlight and inhospitable to us. The differences in pressure between the surface and even a modest depth of 100 meters is enough to turn a human into mush. That pressure, that depth, is nothing compared to the true ocean deeps.

And as if this isn't enough, the creatures living there seem like they're from another world. Gigantic squid, luminescent fish and creatures that are all mouths and teeth...

6w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip is here with a SOMA update including a new trailer spotlighting the crafting of survival horror on PS4 below.

To quote: Time for a little update on how SOMA is doing. (A brief summary for those who don't already know: SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent that will tackle unsettling questions about consciousness. It will be released on PS4 in 2015.)

Before I get started, I should say a few words about the new teaser trailer, "Theta". This video showcases a few in-game scenes along with fresh voice work. Our hope is to give you a taste of the feel and atmosphere that SOMA will have. It also contains a few clues on what the game's story will be about.

SOMA's current status

We are currently about a week away from the alpha of the game. This is a build in which a bit more than half of the full game is playable. It's currently clocking in at around 5 hours, meaning the final game will end up at 8 hours or so.





A game like SOMA is a bit different to have in alpha than most other games. Normally, a game relies on a core mechanic that creates the basic engagement....
 

Video: SOMA: Frictional Games Brings Sci-Fi Horror to PlayStation 4

27w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip shared a video today spotlighting SOMA, an upcoming Sci-Fi Horror title to Sony's PlayStation 4 video game console.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi, I am Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games, an indie studio based in Sweden.

We have been crafting horror games since 2006 and are probably most famous for having created Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Previously, we have only developed for PC, but this time our new title will be released for PS4 as well!

For the last three years, we have been working on a game called SOMA. All that time, this project has remained a secret – it's a great relief to finally be able to talk about it. This game is by far the most ambitious and thrilling project we have ever undertaken.

So, what exactly is SOMA? Briefly stated, it is a sci-fi horror game played from a first person perspective. You are not a space marine though; you're a normal, very exposed person trapped in a nightmarish world. SOMA is a game about exploration, survival and immersing you inside an interactive narrative.
