Witness the Horrors of ‘Husk’- Now Available on Steam (VIDEO)
Indie game developer Undead Scout has released their new horror-adventure game, Husk. The new game is said to be reminiscent of titles like Silent Hill and Alan Wake. The bone-chilling town of Shivercliff awaits your arrival.
Husk takes place in the mid 1990’s in the fictitious town of Shivercliff. Players will assume the role of Matthew Palmer who has just awoken following a literal train wreck. His wife and daughter are nowhere to be found, and the only indication of his whereabouts is a sign that reads, “Welcome to Shivercliff.” Set in a first-person perspective, the game leaves players to solve the mysteries of the ominous town. Matthew must survive the darkness and the monsters that come from it. Check it out for yourself:
The game is available now through Steam, and at the time of writing, the price is $18.99. Husk released on February 3, and the reviews from gamers have been far more brutal than any monster you may encounter in the game:
“I appreciate what they are trying to communicate but it isn’t an experience. It’s a grind almost. You start on a train and have a little backstory. You decide to get out of your seat and look around. As a player, you are confused on what you have to do.”
“It REALLY sucks. The aesthetic and level design is actually really good, but the voice acting and animations are AWFULLLL. The AI is stupid and not scary, especially when the animations suck. IT’S NOT A SCARY GAME.”
“Great for uninstalling 5/7”
“In terms of gameplay, you get to run around and smack naked people with a pipe because they hiss at you. This is very engaging gameplay, especially with Matthew’s helpful commentary such gems as “what the ♥♥♥♥” and “what happened”. Although it isn’t as bad as other indie horror games, I would not say this is a game worth 18.99, as the only reason anyone could enjoy playing through it, is that they get a kick out of bad games.”
