The Alpha Wave team has released a new trailer for Euclidean ahead of the game’s September 25th launch on Steam. It does a good job of capturing the tension and atmosphere of this haunting game. It’s not horror in the traditional sense… but something is certainly amiss.
Behind our comfortable, familiar dimensions, beyond the timeless depths of space, there is a Place that mankind was not meant to know. A Place hostile to all life. We do not belong there. We cannot survive there. At least, not for long… Euclidean; a game of geometric horror; a slow descent into the dark, into madness, futility, and despair, where things greater than you watch and wait and dream. Struggle for every second of life you have left…
Even knowing you’re better off dead.
Euclidean’s original inspiration came from an old Commodore 64 game by the name of ‘James Bond,’ which featured an intriguingly difficult section where limited visibility was a major gameplay mechanic. Our desire was to explore that same concept in a first-person, virtual reality-based environment. Horror was the obvious genre; nothing is quite so frightening as dangerous forces lurking just out of sight. With a basis in the popular horror mythos of H.P. Lovecraft, Euclidean grew to combine rapidly-created, high-quality assets with entertaining stripped-down gameplay to produce a result that is tense, menacing and exciting all at the same time.
