A New Horror – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

By

There is a new developer on the block, comprised of vets from People Can Fly, called The Astronauts and they are releasing their first title.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is meant to scare and thrill. It is meant to be a completely immersive title; played at night, with headphones, when you are all alone. Do I have your attention now? Based upon the macabre stories of the early 20th century, the game puts you in the role of a detective investigating the disappearance of a young boy. You are not just any detective of course, you have a special, supernatural ability. You have the ability to “see” the scenes of lethal crimes. You will be lead to a mountain area where you come upon a badly mutilated body. Your investigation will lead you on a path to find the missing boy, guided by a trail of bodies.

“What we care about the most is that the players feel like they’re really there. Immersion is our number one priority,” said the game’s designer, Adrian Chmielarz. “It’s a game about exploration and discovery. We’re not abandoning the gameplay – on the contrary: we’re trying to strip it down to the bone and make sure it’s always meaningful and truly makes the experience better.”
The Vanishing of Ethan Cater will be released on PC via digital distributors sometime this year.
