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.
