Asylum; a H.P. Lovecraft-inspired psychological horror adventure game set in a huge, decaying mental institute that is waiting to be explored. It is developed by a young company named Senscape. Their founder Agustín Cordes previously designed and developed the game Scratches, which was really well received for its intriguing story that is equally influenced by H.P. Lovecraft and the Hammer Horror films. With Asylum, Senscape aim to build on this with an even more immersive atmosphere and story. We believe that the less you know, the more Asylum will surprise (read: terrify) you, so I won't tell you too much about that. Still, there are a lot of sneak peeks available on the website, including the trailer and an interactive teaser/short demo:
Asylum is nearing completion and we've recently celebrated it being Greenlit by the Steam community. In order to make it happen sooner, Senscape have set up a Kickstarter to cover the final months of development:
