Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: Fight Your TV And Probably Lose In CARGO
Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!
Welcome back for another new year of ultra-indie horror games! Starting off our 2021 on the right foot is a game by developer Spectral Studios. Inspired by titles like Dead Space and SCP: Containment Breach is third-person shooter CARGO.
In CARGO you play as an agent of an unknown agency. Sent to investigate a mysterious and infectious organism growing in the bowels of a cargo company, you soon realize that this mission is not going to be so simple as a cleanup. But then, why else would your team have come with rifles and Jin-Roh armor?
CARGO is a demo build, which means that hopefully a full game is in the works. This title could easily make for an excellent horror game. The low poly graphics are a lot sharper than other similar indie titles, giving it a similar look as Ashen, and the music is something you should experience for yourself. And they’ve got a monster that could be as iconic as Sirenhead, if the stars align.
