The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is an upcoming weird-horror game (there’s that term again) that’s being developed by part of the team behind 2011’s bombastic shooter, Bulletstorm, as well as the upcoming Gears of War: Judgment (due out next month). It’s a PC exclusive with a focus on storytelling, and the tale it will tell sounds like a dark one. You play as a detective who has “supernatural” powers that let him recreate crime scenes in his mind. Your goal is to find a boy who’s been kidnapped — sounds sort of like a more supernatural take on Heavy Rain, maybe? — but the mystery deepens when you come across the mutilated corpse of one of his captors. Watch its gorgeous announcement trailer after the break.
That’s all in-game footage, by the way. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter uses the Unreal engine, the same one that powers Gears of War and about a million other games. Look for it on PC later this year.
