Default SOMA: Survival Horror from the creators of Amnesia

Pretty jazzed about this one since these guys did both Amnesia and Penumbra (think Alien: Isolation'ish gameplay) for the PC which were both excellent survival horror.

Coming Sept 22 to PC and PS4.

Looks pretty cool. Loving Amnesia and Penumbra, this will be on my radar for sure!

Debating on pre-ordering it. However, I got a lot of stuff to still catch up on. I think once I pay off my credit card, I'll be ready to max it out again.

If it's anything like Amnesia it will be more puzzles and maybe hiding from evil things, no combat.

That's the real deal breaker for me in those games. It's why I stopped playing Outlast so quickly. Getting caught, dying, and reloading kills all sense of tension for me. It just makes games feel like busywork with someone trying to screw up my progress. Even if they don't want to make a laser-sight-head-explodathon, some means of defending yourself and reacting to the environment is clutch for me.

I had the same issues with Outlast. I'm hoping this one is pure Adventure/Puzzle Solving. Something like Vanishing of Ethan Carter would be nice.
