First-Person Horror Visage Funded For Consoles

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
First-person horror is going through quite the boom as of late. From hide-and-seek scares like Outlast to psychedelic experiences like Layers of Fear, there's been no shortage of games allowing us to see through the eyes of those who have found themselves in the most unfortunate of scenarios. Another of these, Visage, has been in its crowdfunding stage for a short while now, and very quickly surpassed the stretch goal of funding a console release. If you're feeling brave, check out the extended trailer.

Visage seems to play off the belief that particularly violent and hateful crimes leave behind particularly terrifying ghosts. Through exploring the house in which the game takes place, you'll uncover the story. When met with these ill intentioned entities, you'll need to outwit them as the game doesn't utilize weapons of any sort. Making protagonists defenseless has been a huge trend in the genre since Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and Visage will become the latest to leave you with little but the ability to run and hide.


For a whole lot more on the game, such as audio samples, gameplay details, and a look at other stretch goals - the game has also already hit its VR support goal - head to its Kickstarter page. For now, rest assured that the Xbox One continues to operate on nightmare fuel, and look for Visage next January.
