Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Zoetrope Interactive today announced that Conarium, an Unreal Engine 4-made Lovecraftian horror adventure title, is on the way to Switch. A release window has yet to be announced.
Here’s an overview of Conarium, along with a trailer:
Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game, which follows a gripping story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella “At the Mountains of Madness”, but largely set after the original story.
● A deep and suspenseful homage to H P Lovecraft with many secrets and Easter eggs.
● Ominous but wonderful graphics created using the Unreal 4 engine.
● Multiple endings.
● A haunting and atmospheric soundtrack.
You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole… Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister…
Explore the Antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues, unlock secrets but avoid macabre beings at all cost.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Conarium aims to bring cutting-edge visuals for a more immersive storytelling experience.
