Perception is now available to download for the PC, through Steam and GOG, and The Deep End Games has unveiled a brand new Launch Trailer to go along with its release.
The Deep End Games is made up of developers that previously worked on BioShock for Irrational Games and Dead Space for Visceral, and they’ve used that experience to create a new horror adventure that takes players inside a haunted mansion known as Echo Bluff. However, navigating the mansion won’t be easy as the protagonist, Cassie, is blind:
In Perception, players take on the role of Cassie, a blind woman able to sense the world around her via echolocation, who is plagued with dreams of a haunted New England estate. Armed with only a cell phone with spotty reception, Cassie heads to Echo Bluff, and it turns out the place is worse than her nightmares. A wraith-like inhabitant known as “The Presence” hunts the young intruder, but Cassie remains determined to uncover the secrets held within the estate’s walls.
Cassie must use her ultra-sensitive hearing to maneuver around the ancient estate and uncover the mysteries within. Each tap of her cane reveals the scenery around her, but also draws in the Presence, who is listening for the young woman. Cassie must avoid detection wherever possible in this cat-and-mouse thriller.
Cassie’s only hope at survival is to uncover the storied past of Echo Bluff, or she risks becoming one of its victims.
Perception was also expected to launch for the PS4 and Xbox One this week, but The Deep End Games has sadly been forced to push its console debut back a week. It should be available to download through the PlayStation Store and Xbox Games Store on June 6.
