Carrion is a horror title that pits players in the role of an amorphous blob of gristle, teeth, and tentacles known simply as ‘The Creature’
The game was originally released back in 2020 for the PC, Switch, and XBox One. It will now be making its debut on the Playstation 4 at some point this year, 2021.
The story focuses on you, ‘The Creature’, trying to break free from a research facility. This makes a nice change from being the one to usually terminate any unknown creatures within horror games.
Carrion has been greedily gobbling up players during its first year on Earth, and we’ve had our sights set on bringing our tentacle-baby’s wanton path of destruction to PlayStation for what feels like forever! We hope those of you who have yet to feel the warm, sticky embrace of our alien protagonist find that it’s been worth the wait.
We are thrilled for you to soon get your feelers on Carrion, but what is a “reverse-horror experience”? Surely that’s just made-up marketing nonsense? Well, if you’re still unaware of our creepy (award-winning) creation, Carrion immerses you in the role of an abominable alien creature as it awakens in a secret, underground laboratory. With no explanation how it arrived there or for what purpose, there is only one thing on the mysterious monster’s mind: escape! And eat people. Okay, two things. But that reverse-horror title makes a lot more sense now, right?
You’ll spread fear and panic throughout the mysterious facility as you stalk and consume the secretive humans that have imprisoned you. As you grow and evolve you’ll acquire devastating abilities, including a web-like ranged attack, the ability to bend light to become temporarily invisible, and even possessing humans for maximum terror.
