Fans of Nintendo Gamecube classic Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem should keep an eye on Tenebris Pictura, as it looks to emulate at least some of the vibes found in the Silicon Knights title. Megaton Rainfall team Pentadimensional Games is releasing the game for PS5 and PS4 on 31st August 2023, and you can get a first glimpse in the trailer above.
Having been transported back to the Victorian era, you'll play the role of a paranormal investigator trapped on a "misty, convoluted" island. "You were invited there by an old friend, to investigate his daughter's disappearance. Before long, you're embroiled in a supernatural mystery linked with a shady sect, and sightings of extra-terrestrial beings that appear to have escaped from a strange collection of paintings with dubious origins."
Along with combat encounters, there'll be puzzles to solve incorporating "disappearing floors [that] transport you to far-away galaxies, moving walls, illusions and lights that create the environment in their wake, [and] transportable worlds found inside paintings". You'll be able to approach these brain teasers in any way you like, and there'll apparently be multiple solutions to solving them. Then, your psychic abilities can be used to discover clues about the strange island.
