I'm still reeling from Scorn's showing during the Xbox Series X gameplay reveal event. It's been nearly four years since we last covered Ebb Software's fleshy first-person horror adventure, and the H.R. Giger-inspired visuals still make my skin crawl. In a good way! (I think.) You'll see what I mean.
Uninitiated viewers might've thought it was a grotesque new Alien game – honestly, I figured the same for a moment – but no, it's still Scorn, and it's still mostly just getting by on its unsettling imagery.
In an Xbox Wire post, Scorn's investor, Kowloon Nights, shared a brief gameplay synopsis: "As players explore the dream-like world in a non-linear fashion, they will soon learn that every location has its own story, puzzles, and characters – even the unsettling environment is a character itself."
I'll be shocked if this is "enjoyable" to play, but I am so stoked all the same. It's also coming to PC.
