Developer Rock Pocket Games has this week announced that their new horror game Moons of Madness, will be launching on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC systems on Halloween 2019. The development team have also published an announcement trailer to whet your appetite and provide a quick glimpse at what you can expect from the storyline, characters and mechanics of Moons of Madness.
Rock Pocket Games describes Moons of Madness as a “first-person, story-driven cosmic horror game where the scientific exploration of Mars meets the supernatural dread of Lovecraft” and will be making the game available on October 31st, 2019. Inspired by the likes of H.P. Lovecraft, Moons of Madness takes inspiration from Funcom’s “rich lore and mythology” of Secret World Legends, which means both intellectual properties take place in the same universe.
“In Moons of Madness you play Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus, a secret research base built by the Orochi group. Your low security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of a mysterious, intelligent signal that has been detected as coming from the red planet. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties.
Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team has yet to return from their EVA mission. You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real… or are you slowly descending into madness?”
