Frictional Games Reveals New Horror Game SOMA

After posting a couple of cryptic teasers (embedded below,) developer Frictional Games revealed a new project called SOMA. Although famous for developing Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Penumbra and for publishing Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Sweden studio Frictional Games has revealed a horror game that seems to be set in a completely different universe.

As you can see on the teaser trailer embedded above, SOMA is a science-fiction horror game that’s played from a first-person perspective. Like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA puts you in control of a regular man who finds himself trapped in a horrible place. But that’s where the similarities to Amnesia end, since the upcoming title will explore thought-provoking themes related to consciousness and the humanity of machines.

For more information about SOMA, read this post on the PlayStation Blog written by Frictional Games’ creative director Thomas Grip.

SOMA is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2015.
