If you’re a fan of old-school body horror movies like Alien, The Fly or The Thing, then Scorn may be right up your street. It takes an H.R. Giger aesthetic and blends it with bio-guns from eXistenZ and Videodrome, into a first person puzzler, shooter, where you as the lipless protagonist, must explore a bizarre ship filled with fleshy, faceless enemies.
Launched recently on Steam Greenlight, Scorn is a game that is already drawing a lot of interest from gamers for its bizarre aesthetic and horrifying, fleshy setting. The world itself in Scorn is just as disgusting as your own form. You might pull gun parts from your own body, but the nightmare you’re exploring is as equally filled with phalic bones and skin stretched to bursting over horrifying alien organs.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvBo_rKleNw’]
We’re told that the game takes place in a ‘lived in’ world, which will be open ended and allow you to fight and explore through all of its rooms and corridors as you wish, though certain abilities will be required to access some areas.
Although there is no mention of virtual reality on the game’s page, we are told that it will feature “full body awareness,” with the player using their in-game hands to grab items and operate controls. Inventory and ammo management will also be a major component of the game, with each decision said to affect the world around you.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=765bzjnywQc’]
The developers have also detailed how the game will be released in two parts, the first coming in 2017. We’re told that that will be it though, no DLC or expansions, “ever.”

KitGuru Says: Considering how disgusting the world of Scorn is, perhaps it’s good that we’ll only get a glimpse into its horrifying world? I’ve always loved body horror movies, but struggled with horror games. I wonder if I can hold myself together long enough to enjoy Scorn’s utter weirdness.
