Norwegian Funcom describes their newly released game The Park as a psychological horror single-player experience – released with perfect timing for PC during Halloween earlier this year.
The game is about one to two hours long and focuses entirely on exploration and storytelling, with players taking on the role of “Lorraine”, a mother whose son goes missing at “Atlantic Island Park”.
Press and fans received The Park very well – UK-based The Telegraph included the game in the newspaper’s list of “Five Modern Horror Games You Must Play This Halloween”, and during the first week of release various Let’s Play videos on YouTube generated more than seven million views.
Check out the teaser trailer:
Though now available for PC on Steam here, console owners will have to wait for the first quarter of 2016, when Funcom will release The Park for Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One (via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program) consoles.
“Encouraged by the positive reactions we have received on the Windows PC version, we are very excited about bringing (The Park) to consoles. Exploring a dark, sinister and frankly terrifying location from the comfort of your sofa, with the lights turned off and controller in hand, is sure to be a very rewarding experience,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais.
