Psychological Survival Horror Game Draugen is Still in Development

Published

 on

In response to a question, Red Thread Games announced on Twitter that survival horror game Draugen is not dead.

The reason given for the silence is continued development of episodic cyberpunk/fantasy series Dreamfall Chapters. Based on the Longest Journey series (which contains a puzzle often included in “worst video game puzzle” lists), it seeks to continue on where Dreamfall: The Longest Journey left off to present a conclusion. Red Thread Games seeks to have a release date for the final chapter soon.

Draugen is a first-person psychological survival horror game set in 1923 in a coastal village in Norway. As an American traveller, who originally ventures out to find his missing sister, you must survive and stay sane for a week as the environment tries to rend not just your body but your fragile mental attachment to sanity.

As you can tell it has all the hallmarks of Lovecraft, cackling in the shadows as the mystery goes as cold as your body and soul, but the invoking of Norway isn’t coincidental. The draugen is the modern Danish/Swedish/Norwegian written version of the draugr or draug, an undead creature from Norse mythology. One characterised by superhuman strength, the unmistakable stench of decay and the ability to manipulate their size at will (Norse mythology is odd sometimes). They exist to guard treasure, murder the living or to simply haunt those who have done them wrong back when they still had a pulse.

Draugen will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

DOOM Eternal Gets Nightmarish Concept Art

Doom Eternal

Bethesda has been pretty quiet about DOOM Eternal the past few months, but the company has reminded onlookers of the project’s stellar design via a piece of concept art.

Entitled ‘Hell Gate’, the concept art details Hell’s equivalent of royalist architecture, complete with DOOM (2016)’s penchant for contrasting colours and strong, angular geometry. The centrepiece of the art is the beloved Doomguy, whose heavy frame looks pretty small compared to the scale.

The art was shared directly on the game’s Twitter page, embedded below:

DOOM Eternal has no release date as of yet, but expect id Software to share more about the game at Bethesda’s E3 conference.
