The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looks spectacular

'Itís less about pure terror and more about clammy unease'

The Astronauts' The Vanishing of Ethan Carter continues to look intriguing. And stunning -- gosh, these new screenshots are lovely. Presented from a first-person perspective, this PC (and eventually next-gen console, if everything goes according to plan) title stars a detective who can visualize the last moments of people who have been murdered. The more clues he finds, the longer and more vivid his visions become.

Such a cool premise. The other hook that has me interested is the developer's classification of this as "weird fiction horror, meaning our focus is on atmosphere, mood, and the essential humanity of our characters." If you're worried Ethan Carter isn't coming out anytime soon -- I'm right there with you -- know that it's a matter of months away, not years off.
