Interpoint’s Early Access Release Trailer Paints a Tense, Foreboding Atmosphere

Published

Interpoint

Interpoint is an upcoming first-person, sci-fi shooter by developer Three Dots, and its Early Access trailer is packed full of atmosphere.

The trailer opens in an empty, dimly-lit laboratory. After meandering through a few corridors, the game’s protagonist, Harry G., discovers a portal. Soon the trailer presents a cross-section of the project’s environments, ranging from the aforementioned laboratories to neon-tinged alien planets.

Primarily, Interpoint wrestles with quantum theory. In a world where a secret organisation has discovered parallel worlds, players must assume the role of Harry, one of the organisation’s scientists, to mend the damage that he helped create.

Previously, Interpoint was confirmed to possess several endings to its dimension-defying story, with gameplay centred around a weapon called the photon gun, which can absorb energy from external sources and transfer it into something else. The vibe of the whole game sounds very Half-Life 2, really.

Interpoint is now in Early Access on Steam.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
