Observer [Official Site], a brand new horror from the developers of 'Layers of Fear' has been announced. It's being published by Aspyr Media once again and I have it confirmed it will be on Linux.

It's being developed with Unreal Engine 4, so hopefully with Aspyr Media helping out, Bloober Team should be able to get a polished Linux version sorted.

It was initially only teased at E3 last year, but it's good to get some confirmation now.

Little is known about it, but Layers of Fear was a quality horror title that was really well done. So I look forward to seeing what Bloober and Aspyr can cook up for us.

About the game
>observer_ is a first person perspective horror game that focuses on a dark, atmospheric environment and deep story telling.

The game is set in a near future in a grim Cyberpunk version of Cracow, Poland. You take on the role of an Observer - a part of a special corporate-funded police unit - whose purpose is to hack and invade other people minds and memories. Face the horrors of twisted minds, blurred by failing memories, entangled and mixed with your own fears.

- Hack into the twisted minds of criminals and their victims
- Eastern-European Cyberpunk setting
- Unsettling, dark atmosphere of a hidden horror game

Hm, Layers of Fear is a brilliant horror game -- one of the few that actually creates an atmosphere of fear, and doesn't just rely on jump scares -- so I might get this one on that predigree alone; however, I'm not sold on the premise. I hope it proves to be a good game!

So this is one of the two original IPs Aspyr is focusing on right now.

Nice, Aspyr is starting off on the right foot for us this year I was starting to wonder if they were even doing Linux ports anymore. Apparently they are

Other than the direct info to Liam, Aspyr hasn't said a word about the Linux (and mac) delay.
