Survival Horror ‘Lost Within’ Announced, Coming from the Makers of ‘Prey’

The last big game to come from developer Human Head Studios was the underrated sci-fi action game Prey. I’ve been waiting to see something new and exciting from the incredibly talented studio, and seeing as that definitely won’t be Prey 2, why not take a stab at the survival horror genre? That’s what the studio is doing with their next project, called Lost Within.

Lost Within is set in a haunted asylum — I know — which a “legendary killer” calls home. Players will need to scavenge for precious supplies to survive, crafting weapons and using the darkness to hide from enemies. Running is also an option. I think I’ll take that one, thankyouverymuch.

The game is being published by Amazon Game Studios for iPhone, iPad and the Amazon’s Fire phone. It releases this Summer.

It’s a little unfortunate that we’re again relying on the overused “scary asylum” setting, but if it’s scary, I’ll be more willing to forgive its lack of originality. What do you think?

  • Sounds like Alien Isolation except with a killer in an asylum.

    No! No more asylums! I can’t take it anymore! Please, horror-game developers of the world, there really are more locations you can use! Madness isn’t just confined to sanitariums and hospitals. It’s EVERYWHERE!
    Forgive me, but I just think asylums are overused.

    This sounds like the most blatant Evil Within knock off ever. Even worse, it’s exclusive to phones! This is probably the dumbest thing I’ve heard since Outlast winning an award.

    If any of that video is in-game, then the graphics look pretty good for a mobile game. That’s about all it has going for it, though. Prey was decent, but nothing spectacular.
