‘Prey’ developers Human Head Studios have revealed their next project, a survival horror title called ‘Lost Within’ for tablets and mobile phones.
‘Lost Within’ is a first-person stealth horror game that tasks players with surviving a haunted asylum filled with monsters and a mysterious killer who lurks in the shadows. To help players in their struggle, players will need to explore their environment in order to scavenge for useful items that they can combine together to build makeshift weapons and tools.
In terms of actual gameplay, it is still unclear whether or not ‘Lost Within’ will be on rails or if it will be controlled freely by the player. But from the looks of footage seen so far, there definitely looks to quite a focus on stealth gameplay and some tense scares along the way.
According to a blurb about how the environment in ‘Lost Within’ will be structured, Human Head Studios states that “there are many doors, but there is only one way out.”
‘Lost Within’ is the product of a collaboration between Human Head Studios and Amazon Game Studios — the famous online retailer’s new game studio. Most gamers will recognize Human Head Studios for their work on the first person shooter ‘Prey’, which was released back in 2006 for Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The studio was initially hard at work on a sequel to ‘Prey’. However, it was eventually confirmed in 2014 that the sequel was cancelled by publisher Bethesda Softworks due to its development progress not meeting their quality standard.
Regardless, check out the announcement trailer below of ‘Lost Within’ to get a feel for what the game is shooting for. Definitely let us know what you think in the comments below!
‘Lost Within’ is planned to release for Amazon Fire Phone, Amazon Fire Tablets, iPhone and iPad sometime this summer.
