Inspiring Fear: Huntsman – The Orphanage

hblf, lfneJason L Blair01 February 2013

It’s an exciting time for PC games with a lot of developers, especially the indies, trying new genres and new ideas within old genres. One such game that Little Fears fans might want to put on their radar is Huntsman – The Orphanage, a horror game from an outfit called ShadowShifters. Played through a first-person perspective, you must elude the ominously-named Huntsman as you try to escape the titular facility with only your smartphone and your wits to guide you. Judging from the trailer, it seems the smartphone will be incredibly important in not just your survival but others’ as well.

I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler to say that children are involved in the story as well as what seems to be a heavy supernatural element. I got a strong Slenderman: The Eight Pages vibe from what I’ve seen and read but I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

You can keep tabs on the game via the developer’s website or their current page under Steam Greenlight. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on it. You can check out the official trailer below.

  1. Shadowshifters Says:

    Thank you for noticing and for caring about Huntsman: The Orphanage enough to write it up – really appreciate your interest! Another key element is the philosophy behind our game – that we believe we can deliver a horror-survival gaming experience without resorting to guns and gore, or the use of violence as a conflict resolution tool… only time will tell if we are right!
