CONSCRIPT, a blending of themes and elements similar to Resident Evil and Silent Hill come together in the harsh trenches of the first world war. It recently completed a Kickstarter campaign, pulling close to $40,000 (AU) from almost 800 backers to bring it to life across the confirmed platforms of Linux, macOS and Windows.
Exploring a setting that horror games don't usually go to, a pixel-art survival horror like this definitely has a way of capturing our interest.
"During the First World War, a lone French soldier must navigate twisted trenches, scavenge for limited supplies and solve complex puzzles - all whilst fighting for survival in the midst of mankind’s most brutal and horrifying conflict."
- Experience classic and methodical survival horror gameplay in a unique historical setting: the Battle of Verdun.
- Fend off enemy soldiers and disturbing psychological manifestations with a variety of melee weapons and firearms.
- Navigate intricate level design that promotes item management and route planning, whilst solving complex environmental puzzles.
- Survive in an intense, harrowing atmosphere boosted by a unique pixel art aesthetic and oppressive sound design.
- Three distinct areas that intertwine and overlap.
- Highly re-playable with multiple difficulty settings, alternate scenarios and bonus weapons.
