Outside of a few teasers, The Astronauts have smartly kept from showing too much of their upcoming supernatural thriller, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The game is being made by former People Can Fly devs (Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgment), and follows a detective who’s on the hunt for a missing boy. While I’m always up for a good mystery, what’s most exciting about this game is its use of photogrammetry technology.
I’m not one to ever put visuals above narrative, but the tech behind Ethan Carter will give the game a near-photorealistic look, thanks to its use of actual photos. You can enjoy the gorgeous results of this new tech in the trailer below.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is slated to release this fall on PC.
