Video game developers and publishers Deep Silver announced today a game they’re working on called Cursed Mountain. A wicked survival horror game in the Himalayas. Now that is a sweet idea, finally something different! The game is only coming out for the Wii, and is looking to be released worldwide sometime in 2009. Now there haven’t been too many horror games for the Wii thus far, and understandably so, the whole Nintendo Wii makes me feel like a little kid again. Bubbly fun games, etc, but just from the 2 screen shots below, this game looks like it’s going to give me a scare.
Set in the late 1980s, gamers will take on the role of a fearless mountaineer as he climbs into the Himalayas on a quest to find his lost brother. As he ascends the mountain, he encounters an ancient curse: the souls of the people who died in that region are stuck in limbo, caught in the Shadow World. Villagers, pilgrims, mountaineers and Buddhist monks – dead but not yet reincarnated – are all that is left on the mountain. Terrible visions will disorient him, and ghosts and demons block his path. But the question remains – is his brother still alive?
Designed exclusively for Wii, Cursed Mountain features rich visuals and breathtaking views – set on the roof of the world in the life threatening death zone, the entire game world is visible from every level. The gesture-based combat system takes full advantage of the Wii motion sensitivity. Players will use the Wii RemoteTM to look around, sense the environment, climb and fight enemies.
“With a fresh setting, gloomy atmosphere and the innovative use of the Wii controls, Cursed Mountain will deliver a unique, terrifying game play experience,” said Hanneshttp://cursedmountain.deepsilver.com Seifert, Managing Director at the Deep Silver development studio. “Deep Silver is confident that Cursed Mountain will help to further establish our international presence, and help expand the survival horror game genre on the Wii platform.”
