During yesterday's Devolver Digital broadcast, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer made a surprise appearance and announced a release date for the upcoming reverse horror game, Carrion. It will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on 23rd July.

So, how exactly does a reverse horror game play out? Instead of taking control of a heroic human, you'll assume the role of a terrifying amorphous creature that slithers about. Here's the official description:

CARRION is a reverse horror game in which you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin. Stalk and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout the facility. Grow and evolve as you tear down this prison and acquire more and more devastating abilities on the path to retribution.

A physical release has also been confirmed, but there's no additional information about it just yet.

Have you always wanted to take control of the alien rather than the survivors? Does this look like your kind of game? Leave a comment down below.
