    This upcoming horror game is supposed to be realistic in that it will accurately represent a 1940s asylum in Volterra, Tuscany.



    Quote:“Our goal is to recreate the experiences, the anguish and the human drama of patients living in mental institutions up to the end of the last century: both the pain of mental disease and the horrors patients underwent within the walls of the institutions where they were being ‘treated.’”

    “Our story takes place in one of the biggest asylums that ever existed in Italy, which counted more than 5000 internees at one time and was located in the city of Volterra: an asylum with a most controversial though little known history.”

    “We faithfully recreate a notorious area of this asylum, that included two pavilions called Charcot and Ferri, by carrying out ‘authorized’ inspections on the abandoned site and by gathering the testimony of former patients, doctors and nurses.”

    Seems like a lot of upcoming horror games look really good, in terms of aesthetics. I wonder if they'll deliver on scares.

    The game itself looks like an Outlast-ish location with Amnesia atmosphere and gameplay. From what I see, it looks like someone wanted to visit an abandoned asylum, and got stuck inside with the ghosts and horrors within.

    [spoiler]I hope I'm wrong, but I hope it doesn't end up with it being "all an illusion" within a mentally-disturbed patient inside the asylum itself. The trailer really made it feel that way.[/spoiler]

    Wow, I agree. Horror games lately are starting to recuperate from their mistake of petty jumpscares and mediocre storyline. Hopefully this will be one of the many that impress greatly.
