Sam Barlow has announced the next two games from Immortality developer and publisher Half Mermaid.
Shortly after heavily redacted product pages for Project C and Project D went live on Steam, Half Mermaid’s CEO shared a few more details about the games, which will see him returning to the horror genre, in an interview with Kinda Funny Games.
While Barlow is best known today for directing and writing Her Story, Telling Lies and Immortality, he previously wrote and designed Silent Hill Origins for PS2 and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for Wii and PS2.
“One of them is in the tradition of Immortality, building on some of that tech but going in a cool direction,” he said of Project C. “I think, you look at the Steam tags, you can see that it’s horror, sci-fi horror, it’s a very cool premise.
“It might be like the chunkiest mechanic we’ve come up with within this kind of non-linear space, it’s a cool little puzzle box,” he added.
“And then the other, Project D, that is for my old school fans that played Silent Hill: Shattered Memories back in the day.
“This is a third-person survival horror game, but like, take that and then imagine what happens if the immortality team fuses with a third-person survival horror game”.
Half Mermaid’s new game were announced to coincide with Immortality’s release for PS5 today.
Featuring “new haptic and controller speaker features to bring to life the game’s virtual moviola”, it’s priced at $19.99 / £15.99 on Sony’s console.
