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.
