The independent studio formed by BioShock and Dead Space veterans today released a new gameplay video from their horror game Perception featuring a young blind woman as the clock ticks toward their campaign’s end. We’ve previously talked about the game, and interviewed it’s creator Bill Gardner.
At the time of writing, The Deep End Games is only 3 days and less than $20,000 dollars away from successfully funding their game, Perception. Today, they release a scene from the game that shows how various design elements come together in the gameplay.
Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that puts players in the shoes of a young blind woman who must use her extraordinary hearing and sharp cunning to solve mysteries and escape a deadly presence, all without sight.
The brand-new video shows Cassie not only tormented by The Presence, but also the mansion itself. “We have a lot to show with Perception and we hope that this latest video gives a taste of the game’s many unrevealed layers,” said Creative Director Bill Gardner. “This game is all about keeping you on the edge of your seat, sharpening your ears and keeping vigilant about those dark corners.”
Previously, The Deep End Games announced low vision support for the game and stated that it would donate up to $25,000 of the game’s proceeds at retail if the Kickstarter hits $250,000 in funding.
“After millions of dollars being spent and big games rocking it at shows like E3, it’s time to turn attention to the fact that we need protagonists who are differently abled,” said Amanda Gardner, Lead Writer and Producer. “We need representation of all different types of people and we felt that it made sense to not only try and create awareness, but also try and make our game as inclusive as we can for all players and pay it forward if we’re successful.”
The Perception Kickstarter ends on Thursday 25th of June at 9:00am EST. Click here to back the campaign, or check out the new gameplay footage below.
