Polish developer Polyslash have revealed their first in-development title called Phantaruk, a stealth survival horror game coming to PC this August.
Billed as a survival horror game, Phantaruk sounds quite similar in concept to other games in the genre like Alien: Isolation or Monstrum. Players will explore the derelict Purity-02 space vessel and face the threat that lurks on-board the ship.
What makes the game a bit more unique, however, is its survival elements. Players will have to monitor their own pulse as infectious toxins have infiltrated the player’s body. You will need to be on the lookout for “special syringes” to keep the toxins from infecting the player.
Much like the Outlast games and the usable camera with nightvision, players will also be on the lookout for batteries to keep their flashlight alive. According to the press release, players will not survive long without light on their side.
“One of our goals was to make sure that the player can never feel completely safe,” said Patryk Polewiak of the Polyslash development team. “We created an environment in which you are constantly hunted down and can be surprised at every corner. We achieved that by exploiting tools more sophisticated than simple jump scares which are so prevalent in horror video games.”
The first screenshots for the game can be seen below. Phantaruk should be getting a gameplay reveal trailer before the end of the month and we’ll have some hands-on impressions to share with you in the coming days as well.
Phantaruk is due out in August on the PC. Polyslash hopes to bring the game to the PS4 and Xbox One in the future as well. Stay tuned for further updates by following OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter.
