For those of you who don't already know, Hudson is currently working on a new survival horror game called Calling.
The first screenshots of the game in action have just been released and as you can see, it's looking pretty creepy. The game is currently on schedule for a Spring 2010 release, so it's still a ways off.
You can check out the official press release below along with the batch of brand new screenshots of the game in action.
The Black Page
Rumor has it that you will die if you visit the Black Page Website and see “something” in the site. Anyone can visit the site, but only a few can actually see things within the site. The site is literary all in black and just shows a counter. Some say the site is a hoax, a prank, or a marketing ploy. A few people say the site is a bridge to something sinister and the counter indicates the number of people who have died after seeing the site.
Those who see something in the Black Page begin to stray somewhere between life and death. There are multiple characters who are present throughout the game. The Calling revolves around these characters and their fight for survival.
The spirits of the dead go to the space-between-space where the Calling revolves around. This place is made up by the memory of dead characters and various locations in the space such as houses, schools and hospitals etc. Someone or something is drawing the living to this space for a reason that becomes apparently horrifying once the characters discover the truth.
- Traditional Survival Horror: No rocket launchers, no chain saws, no suits of armor. Calling is a story that revolves around real people in their fight for survival.
- Intuitive controls designed for the Wii to navigate characters throughout the world.
- Equipment: Flash lights, note pads, radios, etc. that you can use to escape the Calling
As usual, we'll have more information on Calling as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the game is released.
