Technology Confronts The Cthulhu Mythos
Frogwares (the developer traditionally known for the Sherlock Holmes series) have released the first trailer for Magrunner: Dark Pulse. Part first person physics puzzler, half Lovecraftian horror and all Sci-Fi, this is so far up my street that I've made up the guest bedroom.
Of course, the jury's still out on whether it will actually be any good, or just a cheap and cheerful Portal rip. We'll find out when Magrunner releases on PC, PSN and XBLA later this year.
In the near future, in 2050, a handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezberg's technology, the candidates have to solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms, by magnetically charging objects that will attract or repel each other. But when an earthquake disrupts the training program, what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates will soon become a descent into folly and cosmic horror! In this video, plunge with Dax, the hero of the game, into a future where Technology confronts the Cthulhu Mythos!
