In ‘The Hum’, You’re Alone and Hunted by Aliens

TheHum

At first glance, The Hum sounds a lot like War of the Worlds, only with less Tom Cruise and more survival horror. It’s will feature a meaty single-player campaign and a “strong focus” on Oculus Rift support, all powered by Unreal Engine 4. Story-wise, the game takes place in an urban area a few months after an alien invasion. Players take on the role of a survivor who has been hiding out since the space folk attacked. The goal is to evade the aliens long enough to try and escape, but that may be more difficult than it sounds. Apparently, the aliens are totally onto you.

According to the game’s summary, players will “suffer constant abductions that will alter your sense of reality and will break down your deepest beliefs.” This will have an impact on the gameplay, as “every day, every night, you wake up with new memories, new abilities, new paranoias.” That sounds like the aliens are toying with this poor guy.

    It looks way too dark. Why can’t game devs ever get ‘night vision’ right? Once my eyes adjust to the dark, I can see much better than this gameplay footage shows…

    • Adam Dodd

      The video is a bit dark, but that could be due to a number of reasons (it’s still very much unfinished, captured video can be darker than the game, etc.)

  • marklola12 .

    looks great but the point of VR is to put you into the games world…so unless a lot of these games let you use 2 motion controllers to control both hands of the ingame character and not just a controller or keyboard and mouse then it will take away from a good VR experience

    HAre aliens involved in high tech and genetic experiments with the US Government? All I know is I found a lot of very credible Dulce Base information and pictures at:
