The excitement never ends, does it? Sony has casually taken to Twitter today to promote a viral marketing campaign for Amnesia: The Dark Descent developer Frictional Games’ next release. A mysterious message – noting that “something strange is afoot” – redirects to SOMAsystems.org, which just so happens to resolve on the same page as the one for the Swedish studio’s latest project.
The page itself includes a video, which shows an engineer tampering with a computer before things go horribly wrong. Considering that the company’s previous title is widely revered as one of the most frightening games ever created, we’re intrigued by the prospect of its successor taking place in space. Even more interesting is that Sony seems to be involved in some capacity, meaning that it could end up an exclusive like fellow indie projects Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and RIME.
It looks like the studio is going to drip feed information over the coming months, presumably building up to some kind of an announcement. In the meantime, check out the video below – and let the hype consume you like the Brennenburg Castle.
