Horror games are known for the deeply immersive qualities and their emphasis on narrative which is fulfilling for horror aficionados. An upcoming horror game, The Suicide of Rachel Foster has recently caught our eye in particular.
The Suicide of Rachel Foster is a fear inducing, slightly eerie looking first-person narrative (FPP) horror adventure game. It has all the elements one would expect like bad weather, a creepy location and something really wrong. The game set in a “desolate mountain hotel” during the early 1990s. Trapped by a massive blizzard, no means of contact to the outside world except the disembodied voice of a distant FEMA agent, players will have to explore the deserted hotel in bid to figure out “a dark family mystery.”
The setup and the trailer, have a small, but subtle resemblance to the recent horror tittles like, Gone Home, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Firewatch. The game also has an all around chilling vibe going on, resembling the all time hit, Silent Hill Downpour.
Publisher Daedalic Entertainment described The Suicide of Rachel Foster as “a thriller about love and deception,” with bits of mystery and horror here and there, all built on “intriguing, touching, and mature storytelling.”
Daedalic is known for an overall solid game story has production, but the game is being developed by One-o-One Games. The Italian studio, whose previously released tittles don’t offer an elaborate overview of their narrative capabilities, has led many to speculate if the game will deliver the desired spine chilling experience or not.
The Suicide of Rachel Foster is now available for pre-purchase on Steam, and sales will go live on February 19, 2020.
