The lovely lads and ladies over at Rock Paper Shotgun spotted a nice mod for SOMA that prevents the deep denizens from trying to attack you. It's called The Wuss Mode: Monsters Won't Attack so you can enjoy a sense of shame for not bei...   read

SOMA handles horror differently than Amnesia

In June, I told myself to stay away from watching and subsequently covering any more trailers for SOMA. That was going well -- until today. Curiosity got the better of me, but at least this "Environments" trailer is abstract enough to not f...   read

I'm avoiding all SOMA trailers after this

This is the point at which I'm starting to feel like I've seen too much of SOMA, Frictional Games' underwater sci-fi horror title for PC and PlayStation 4. I'd like to avoid any additional footage that comes in between now and launch on, s...   read

SOMA looks like a worthy successor to Amnesia

A series of live-action videos and an alternate-reality game have led to this: 12 minutes of uncut footage from Frictional's next first-person horror title, SOMA. It's coming to PC and PS4 at long last on September 22, 2015. Bad things are...   read

The SOMA ARG's spilled a new trailer

I've never understood ARGs. Hidden in a bit of code is a link to a server that an art designer for the game’s mother’s dog once owned. Once you’ve cracked that server in all 17 dimensions you’ll finally get 3 second...   read

SOMA is in beta, but we can't play it (and that's probably for the best)

Frictional says 'sorry for the silence' with a SOMA screenshot

I'm with Steven -- the ocean, pretty as it is, can also be petrifying. What just brushed against me? The studio behind Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent is plunging into the depths with SOMA, its next horror title, and this is gonna be...   read

Frictional's horror game SOMA has a new setting
