Signalis, announced earlier in the year and due out on 27th October, will continue the survival horror renaissance on PS4. The twist this time, however, is that this looks like a long-lost PS1 classic. We suppose, after years of 8-bit and 16-bit indie games, it was only natural developers would turn to the 32-bit era – and as a PlayStation fansite, we’re here for it!
“Experience fear and apprehension as you encounter strange horrors, carefully manage scarce resources, and seek solutions to challenging riddles,” the blurb reads. “Explore the dim corners of a derelict spaceship, delve into the mysterious fate of the inhabitants of a doomed facility, and seek what lies beneath.”
This looks really interesting, doesn’t it? The developer says it’s been inspired by “classic cosmic horror and the works of Stanley Kubrick, Hideaki Anno, and David Lynch”. We reckon it’s really nailed that PS1 look, although obviously it’s doing things that would be impossible on Sony’s original console. This is definitely one to keep an eye on.
