Frictional Games Releases Footage of SOMA

SOMA is Frictional Games’ new take on survival horror. Instead of the traditonal medieval approach that we’ve seen from the Amnesia series, SOMA is now more sci-fi and aims to change the dynamic of the formula they’ve been experimenting with since the Penumbra franchise.

They also revealed more about their attempts to better immerse their players into SOMA’s world. Link below.

I'm an adept gamer with 15+ years of experience in the best and worst of gaming history. I've always believed that gameplay is the most important part of a video game in most instances. My favorite games are Super Mario 3D World, Journey, Yoshi's Island, Paper Mario, and Dust: An Elysian Tail.
