While the Swedish team of Tarsier Studios is preparing to continue the spooky logic platformer Little Nightmares, which will hit the market on February 11, some of the original developers left the company and embarked on their own interesting project. Also in Malmö, Sweden, a new independent Section 9 Interactive team has been formed, led by former leading authors Little Nightmares.
On the official website, they are tempted to work on a new science fiction action adventure for PC and a new generation console, powered by Unreal Engine. That in itself would not be much, but there are also some quite impressive samples from the new game, which does not even have a name yet. Or at least its authors have not yet revealed it.
The mechanical guards are said to be protecting an unspecified dead world. We will also find new paths in it with the help of explosives that will make a hole in the wall.
On social In the nets, however, a few more fragments can be traced. Dangerous enemies will face us, the studio warns. These mechanical guards are said to be protecting an unspecified dead world. We will also find new paths in it with the help of explosives that will make a hole in the wall. The local environment is supposed to be full of mysteries and dangers, and in addition to weapons, we will also use tools such as an attraction anchor or a flashlight or a sensor.
According to the team, the project is just beginning, but I think it is already worth attention. Although there is no classic teaser or even a full-fledged trailer, a few short clips from the game suggest that we can look forward to a dark atmosphere and a bleak environment like Alien, Pandorum Syndrome or Dead Space.
Unfortunately, we do not yet know the preliminary release date. As the authors themselves revealed in the answers to a question from one of the fanpieces, the name of the Section 9 studio refers to Ghost in the Shell. It would not be surprising if it also served as a source of inspiration for developers. It is not yet certain whether the game will also get on the hybrid Switch, but the versions for PS5 and Xbox Series are certain according to Section 9.
At first glance, the novelty is a bit like Stasis from The Brotherhood or another recently introduced sci-fi horror film, Cryospace by Kuklam Studios.
