The Park Review | A true psychological thriller

It’s a fact I’ve stated time and time again, but Funcom’s MMORPG The Secret World has some of the best world building of any game I’ve played. Each of the zones is filled with lore that details of the Lovecraft-inspired dangers that roam the lands, and the tragedies caused by them. It’s because of this I’ve always felt that there were more stories to tell and bigger secrets to uncover, and thankfully Funcom felt the same way.

The end result is The Park – a single player experience that tells one such story. Players assume the role of Lorraine, a single mother who loses her son Callum at the Atlantic Island Theme Park. Of course, TSW players who have been to The Savage Coast region will already know the theme park quite well, along with why it’s probably the worst idea ever to take (let along lose) your child there. While the opportunity to learn more of the park’s history and its mysterious owner is there, the main focus aims at delving into Lorraine’s troubled past, and how it affects the relationship with her son.

Funcom are primarily known for their online experiences such as Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, and The Secret World, but today they have released a teaser trailer for a brand new single player experience. The Park, which according to Red Thread Games' Ragnar Tornquist is planted in The Secret World universe, looks to feature a character named Lorraine and "the most terrifying nightmare of her life" at a theme park. The images shown in the teaser should look rather familiar to players of The Secret World, especially for visitors of The Savage Coast. You can judge for yourself by hitting the jump.
