This is going to be the year that proves the existence of Senscape’s long-in-the-making indie game Asylum. We won’t have to wait too much longer to get our hands on it, and when it’s ours, we’ll finally know for sure that all of this wasn’t a figment of our own broken psyches. We didn’t make it up from a prison with padded walls. It exists.
In case you’ve forgotten, this love letter to old school horror adventure games was made possible thanks in part to the nearly $120k it raised on Kickstarter about three years ago. That makes it one of the more impressive success stories the genre has seen since crowdfunding took off in 2012.
Senscape is confident they’ll have it done this year, and I believe them.
“We’re getting ready to start unleashing fresh new horrors upon you as we resume hype for our ambitious game which, yes, should be released [in 2016],” confirms a recent post on the studio’s Facebook page. “It’s been a LONG time coming and Asylum is shaping up to become a title that will surpass even your wildest expectations. 100% guaranteed (or else we’ll be in deep trouble).”
Who here’s interested in taking a field trip to the Hanwell Mental Institute?
