Iceberg Interactive and developer Lazarus Studio have announced their new horror title, Lunacy: Saint Rhodes which uses AI to watch players’ every move.
Horror games aren’t great at the best of times, but the thought of a horror game which learns players’ every move is a little daunting don’t you think? Well, that’s exactly what Lunacy: Saint Rhodes is all about… sort of.
Coming to PC in 2019, the game will have players seeking the truth behind their family’s murder, investigating their naturally spooky ancestral home in Saint Rhodes and dealing with The Author, a mysterious entity that haunts the house. The thing is, The Author isn’t just any old AI with set jump scares, oh no, The Author observes the player, learning how they play, changing the course of the game as they play.
Now, you might have heard of the game prior to this and that’s because the game actually found fame via its early gameplay demo on itch.io which found 4 million views on YouTube from the likes of Markiplier.
Lunacy: Saint Rhodes is now getting a fleshed out game that’s set to land on PC in 2019. Until then, check out the game’s spooky trailer:
