CARRION brings on the grisly reverse-horror on July 23

By - | Views: 12,851

Phobia Game Studio and Devolver Digital recently announced that CARRION, a reverse-horror where you're the thing lurking in the dark will release on July 23.

I couldn't be any more excited about this, seriously I'm so hyped about it after playing through the demo three times because it's just so brilliantly designed. You are an amorphous creature of unknown origins, stalking and consuming those that imprisoned you.

You often get games where you're being chased by something, say like the magnificent Alien: Isolation, and there's a good few where you get to be the bad guy. This is very different though, putting you in the position of what's essentially both of those things morphed together in a fresh and rather gruesome format. You slide around, lurking, waiting and eventually reach out with one of your horrifying arms to grab and throw around unsuspecting humans. It is pretty gross, gory and over-the-top violent but also easy to enjoy thanks to the fantastic pixel-art style to it.

If you missed it, here's our previous preview footage of the demo:

I can't help wondering if it features Barbara Windsor and Sid James.

There are custom levels that you can download for the demo that are really quite good and show off some more of the game. Just do a search for "Carrion custom levels"; they are quite easy to load into the game's directory and can be loaded by using the in-game console (the tilde ` key in NA) and typing in "load_level levelname", case sensitive file names for Linux, of course!

Loads of fun until the full game releases!
