Conarium Trailer Released

Zoetrope Interactive and Iceberg Interactive have released the first trailer for their upcoming Lovecraftian Horror game Conarium.

While details are still fairly scarce, the teaser trailer give us a good look at the graphical style and clear ominous ambiance of Lovecraftian dread that’s sure to permeate the game:

 

 

Conarium, which refers to a sinister device hooked up to the brain, is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella “At the Mountains of Madness”, but largely plays after the events in the original story, set in an Antarctic base. The story involves four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature. Expect puzzling, mystical, ominous, even menacing events in weird surroundings, in a place beyond normal human perception…

You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near Antarctica, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole… Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister…

More screenshots and information can be found on the game’s Steam Page.

Have your say!
