You know what? I can’t think of a single horror game that draws inspiration from Inuit mythology. That’s crazy, and it’s an issue that the upcoming survival horror game Qalupalik aims to remedy. The game takes a page from the legend of the same name, which sounds like it started out as a way to scare kids enough to keep them from falling into the icy water. According to the myth, if you come too close to the water’s edge, a Qalupalik will drag you into the depths to do whatever it is ice water monsters do with children.
The game aims to bring this legend to life, albeit virtually, as it tasks players with rescuing a sibling who has been kidnapped by the Qalupalik. Read on for some creepy concept art.
The game is currently in development with support for the Oculus Rift and is slated for a release in late 2015.
Qalupalik isn’t slated to release until late 2015, so it’s a ways off. It’s a good thing we have plenty exciting horror games to look forward to in the meantime.
