Found-Phone FMV Horror Game SIMULACRA Coming to Consoles December 3rd
I don’t think there’s anything scarier in the modern age than someone going through your phone. Seriously, if I die, smash all my technology. No one needs to know what kind of shit I get up to. I don’t care if I was murdered and it might be the only chance you have of catching the killer. I’d rather enter into the afterlife unavenged than my mother to know what kind of weird shit I google. And if you go through my phone while alive, you should pray for a swift death. No human mind can contain all that filth.
I guess it would also be kind of scary to find someone else’s phone. I don’t think they’ve ever made a good movie about it (One Missed Call is not a good movie), but so far they have made at least two good games with that premise. I’ve heard from very reputable sources that both Sara Is Missing and SIMULACRA are quite good. Which makes sense, since they are both created by the same developers, Kaigan Games. Keep on making them spooky phone games, you pioneers.
So if you’re like me and missed these two titles the first time around, worry not. You’ll have another chance to experience SIMULACRA on December 3rd when it releases on consoles! Coming to PS4, Xbox One, and the Switch, you can now play a phone game while your phone does phone stuff. From the Official Press Release:
Wales Interactive have announced they are collaborating with Malaysian game developer, Kaigan Games, to bring their found-phone horror game SIMULACRA to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on 3rd December 2019.
SIMULACRA is the spiritual successor to the viral found-phone horror game Sara Is Missing. The follow up title has since received a 96% overwhelmingly positive review status on Steam and has now received full controller support for console and touchscreen support for Nintendo Switch.
You found the lost phone of a woman named Anna. In it, you see a desperate cry for help in the form of a video message. The phone behaves strangely as you dive deeper into it. You talk to her friends and they have no idea where she is. Her texts, emails and photo gallery provides fragments of information. It’s up to you to piece it together. Recover lost files, piece back corrupted data, and retrace her final steps. Find her before it’s too late.
