“It wasn’t an easy decision to make, but one made due to the Covid-19 situation in Poland, as well as the current schedule of other games on the market.”
“Bloober Team remains committed to delivering our biggest, most ambitious, fear-inducing experience to date,” the company said. “The additional development time will allow us to add further polish, ensuring we deliver our innovative, genre-pushing vision of interactive psychological horror.”
The Medium sees players assume the role of Marianne, a medium living across the real and spirit worlds. According to Bloober, it features “never-seen-before and officially patented gameplay that plays out across two worlds displayed at the same time.
“Explore the physical world and the spirit world simultaneously, and use the interactions between them to solve dual-reality puzzles, unlock new paths, and awaken memories of past events,” reads the product description.
Bloober has said The Medium is partly inspired by Konami’s Silent Hill series, which is why it signed the horror franchise’s composer Akira Yamaoka to contribute music to the game alongside Arkadiusz Reikowski (Blair Witch, Layers of Fear, Observer).
