Perception from The Deep End Games is making its way to the PlayStation 4 later this year. This is a a first-person narrative horror adventure where players take control of Cassie who is blind. She’ll need to use her enhanced hearing and sharp wits to unravel the mystery of an abandoned house that haunts her dreams. Will she be able to succeed? Will she survive her quest?
Bill Gardner, Creative Director at The Deep End Games, had this to say about Cassie’s adventure and her particular skills:
After months of research, she discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, MA. Once there, Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than her nightmares. A ghostly Presence has tormented its inhabitants over generations, and it now hunts Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or become one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way by tapping her cane and can “see” via echolocation. She needs to avoid detection and uses ambient sounds of the house to help her navigate or uses objects to create distractions. Every sound creates a visual. But there is a cost…sound will attract your enemies and reveal your location.
We look forward to learning more about Perception, and we’ll make sure to keep all of you updated on the game’s development !
