If I were to come up with a list of places that have always made me even a little uncomfortable, subway systems would rank fairly high on it. There’s something about them that’s always instilled in me a sense of uneasiness, that I’m not really safe. The source of my discomfort could be the handful of horror movies — Mimic, Creep, Midnight Meat Train — or video games — Resident Evil 6, Left 4 Dead, Silent Hill 3, The Train — that have tried their best to make these places intimidating, but I feel like there’s more to it than that.
The indie horror game U55: End of the Line, which takes place in the subway tunnels beneath modern day Berlin, is a beautiful game, as you can see from the video below. It’s also inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. In it, you’re trapped in a dark and labyrinthine subway system, armed only with your wits and a cell phone. Check it out.
The video ends rather abruptly, but the game itself looks gorgeous and more than a little unsettling. If you would like to see more of U55, you can support its Kickstarter campaign (only three days left!) or follow it on Steam Greenlight.
