Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture developer The Chinese Room has returned to its psychological horror roots, with Still Wakes the Deep slated for an Early 2024 release on PS5. Announced earlier today during the Xbox Showcase, the title will see you assume the role of an off-shore oil rig worker, as he fights for his life through a vicious storm.
The press release reads: “All lines of communication have been severed. All exits are gone. All that remains is to face the unknowable horror that’s come aboard. Search for your crew and help them survive if you can. Run, climb, and swim through the flooding corridors and storm-lashed outer decks. Face a terrifying, unrelenting foe. And pray that, one day, you get to see your family again.”
The Chinese Room promises there’ll be no weapons or powers here, “just your wits and determination”. It concludes: “Something has turned your home into a nightmare, where the familiar becomes threatening, and where a noise in the dark fills you with dread. Resist the urge to turn back. Confront the unknown.”
