The Astronauts are ready to announce that they are nearly finished with the pre-production stage of their weird horror game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter; but, a simple announcement wasn’t enough. They decided to tease us with a very stylish micro-graphic novel.
The prequel comic is suppose to be an intro into the game’s universe and story. It has all the moodiness and atmosphere of the previous teasers. We are also introduced to a man with certain skills to navigate the shadows, a boy’s plea for help, strange (and potentially dangerous) symbols, and an unrelenting force pushing towards an inevitable, dark fate.
From a small team that continues to impress with ideas and art, this is good stuff. I can not wait for the next installment.
