Forever Entertainment has revealed that its survival horror game Phantaruk is headed to the Nintendo Switch.
The game combines its survival horror with adventure and stealth mechanics, leaving players to fight for their lives as they face the dangers of the Purity-02 spaceship and the toxins continually destroying them from the inside. Once a research vessel, this spaceship has turned into a deadly, deserted trap, and you'll need to investigate the mysteries of the ship to save your life. With every passing minute, the chances of survival grow weaker.
It's not just the toxins that you need to be concerned about, either; the beast, a creature known from long-forgotten fables and ancient myths, is also roaming the ship, ready to kill you off at a second's notice. It could be prowling around in any shadow and lurking behind any corner so you need to plan your every move carefully.
Check out the lore behind the game from its official PR, as well as a nice collection of screenshots.
For long has the humanity been constrained by limits of the human body. Most have accepted the imperfection of flesh, but some sought for liberation. To pursue the dream of creating a post-human being, to achieve ideas of transhumanism – it’s the driving force behind H+ Corporation. Within its facilities, technology and homo sapiens became one entity. An organism devoid of humanity’s biological weaknesses.
Infected with a parasite emitting deadly toxins, you struggle against havoc being wrought within your body. Alone, confused, and slowly dying.
The game received 'mixed' reviews from users on Steam when it released in 2016, although this Switch edition is said to be "refreshed" and "enriched", hopefully making it a much better experience on Nintendo's system. The game is set to launch on Switch tomorrow for $4.99 / €4.99.
