Perception, a new game being developed by former Bioshock developers

The Deep End Games, a game studio that comprises many of the developers who worked extensively on the Bioshock and Dead Space franchises, announced their plans to develop a new horror adventure game for Steam called Perception through a Kickstarter campaign.

Perception puts the player in the shoes of a blind woman named Cassie who investigates an estate in Massachusetts after seeing the structure in strange visions. The mansion itself sits on Echo Bluff, a remote peninsula on the East Coast, and Cassie must navigate the place by using echolocation which is executed when she taps her cane on the ground. However, the trade-off for producing such noise attracts an unknown force called “the Presence.”

As Cassie progresses on her journey, she must acquire evidence about the history of the mansion with her cell phone in order to ascertain the truths behind the evils that have festered in the mansion over the years. The Kickstarter’s target goal of $150,000 was surpassed with an amount of $168, 041 and the campaign has now progressed into its stretch goal phase where The Deep End Games team hopes to release the game on next-gen consoles like the Xbox One and PS4.

Perception is currently slated for a release in 2016 on Steam, but future release dates are also possible if the game’s stretch goals are satiated.

I live in Southern California and I am a college graduate who enjoys playing video games both new and old. However, I am a very selective gamer and I tend to play games from my favorite genres most of the time, but I am still open to anything that peaks my interest. What games I can review or provide editorials for is mostly dependent on whether I can afford a certain game and if I have an opinion about the game that I wish to express. Anyway, I intend to contribute general gaming news and reviews to Cynosure Gaming as much as possible in order to inform, entertain, and unify gamers of all kinds.
