With The Suffering finally being available for current-gen PCs, the idea of having psychological horror game taking place in a prison had me thinking: Why haven’t we gotten more games like this since then? Well, Iceberg Interactive certainly were thinking the same thing, as they’ve released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming game, Inmates.
Set for release October 5th, the game puts you in the shoes of a man named Johnathan, having just awoken in a run-down prison cell, with no idea of how you got there. But, you do feel a sense of familiarity with your surroundings. You chalk this up to being a bad dream, but that’s far from the truth.
Pegged as short game (about 3-4 hours long), Iceberg Interactive promises “intense and mind-bending puzzles”, coupled with disturbing imagery amidst the suffocating setting of the prison, powered by the Unreal Engine 4. At $10.99, it might be a little too much for such a short adventure, but we’ll see how things go as the release date creeps closer.
