After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign which earned over 600% of its original $10.000 goal, Sense – 不祥的预感: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is set to release in 2020. As a 2.5D game that mixes cyberpunk themes with traditional Cantonese folklore, Sense aims to return the horror genre to its roots; celebrating the slow, fearful creep of dread instead of relying on over-the-top action and jump scares.
Inspired by Clock Tower and Fatal Frame, the story of Sense is set in 2083 Neo Hong Kong, where a young woman named Mei Lin Mak is dragged intoa maelstrom of supernatural horror. As she peers deeper into the century-old mystery, Mei will be forced to question her perception of reality and her trust of her cybernetic eyes. Under the neon lights of a cyberpunk dystopia, the ruins of the ‘Chong Sing Apartments’ hides a bloody mystery illuminated by both the traditions of Chinese folklore and the innovations of the industrial future. If there is any hope of escaping this nightmare, Mei-Lin must explore this complex, piecing together the stories of 14 lost souls to discover the truth of her own family curse.
The demo version of Sense – 不祥的预感: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is already available for anyone to try over at the game’s STEAM PAGE.
“After lots of drafting, feedback, and help from an established publisher and fellow developers, I think I found a solid look and feel, and most importantly, I feel was finally able to craft something unique and exciting” said the lead developer and owner of Suzaku, Benjamin Widdowson.
Due to the game exceeding its set goal of $10,000 by sixfold, Sense will now have additional features such as:
- Localisation in Japanese, Spanish and Russian
- Voice acting
- Two bonus chapters that will be available as a free, post-launch DLCs
Sense is planned to release on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, PS Vita, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
