Headup Games has announced that first-person horror Silver Chains - a game from indie developer Cracked Heads Games - will be terrifying a Switch near you early next year.
The game takes place inside an early 20th century English manor, where the Victorian architecture plays its part in creating an eerie atmosphere - although the creepy child-like music helps a whole lot with this, too. The game uses Unreal Engine 4 for its graphical presentation which is said to "bring to life the hauntingly beautiful interiors" of the house.
After a mysterious accident, the game's protagonist, Peter, wakes up inside this abandoned mansion home. Not knowing how or why he ended up there, he soon begins to realise that he's not alone; while trying to find his way out, he starts to uncover the dark secrets of what has happened and finds hints indicating that he's been there before. You'll be solving puzzles to put together the pieces of the mystery.
- An atmospheric horror experience: photo-realistic & detailed graphics bring the interior of an old abandoned mansion to life and an eerie soundtrack will fully immerse you into the game.
- Story-exploration-game with puzzle- and action elements: Unravel the mysteries of a huge mansion and gain entry into its hidden areas by solving puzzles
- Beware the dangers lurking in the dark. This evil you cannot fight - run for your life or find a place to hide: Experience intense feelings of horror as you try to escape from the monster chasing you down.
The game is scheduled for release in "spring 2019" - we expect to hear more details about this one as we get nearer to this release window.
