Asemblance is the first game from Nilo Studios, a team comprised of former Monolith, Bungie and Visceral devs. It’s an episodic psychological horror played from a first-person perspective, and its inaugural episode is set to launch this month on PC and PS4.
The game’s creative director explains via the PlayStation blog that Asemblance is inspired by TV shows like The X-Files, The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, and that’s more than enough to grab my attention. There’s a trailer of Asemblance in motion below.
Yes. Yes, I’d say that’s some pretty unnerving stuff. In addition to the TV shows mentioned above, Nilo has also been influenced by games such as P.T. and The Stanley Parable. Here’s the outline of the game’s “multi-layered” narrative:
“You wake to find yourself trapped inside an experimental machine. A machine built to simulate memories. You have no idea how you got here… But to break the cycle, you must look into a past that you may not want to remember.”
