Twin Soul is an upcoming survival horror game that’s targeting a release across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with a preference for being a PlayStation VR exclusive. Right now there’s no release date, and I believe that this is more of a passion project than anything, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s an atmospheric treat, if you like being unsettled. Check out the gameplay walkthrough below, it’s worth sticking with all the way to the end for the payoff, and read on for more details.
Soviet Survival Horror
When I first saw Twin Soul described as a soviet survival horror game, I had no idea what to expect. As it turns out, this is the perfect description for Twin Soul, a survival horror game that’s not only set in a post-Soviet industrial city, it embodies everything about the Soviet era in a survival horror fashion.
This is a first person survival horror game, putting players in a wrecked industrial city that’s been experiencing earthquakes lately. It turns out that the earthquakes could be killing people, because they keep going missing. Just one problem, there are no bodies to speak of.
Suddenly someone shows up brutally murdered, and three distinct characters all have a role to play in the events that follow. Each one works with the others to progress through the story, and hopefully avoid being attacked, captured, and eaten by the horrific monsters now roaming the city.
In Twin Soul, these earthquakes have stirred up some twisted fleshy monsters that are now hunting everyone left alive in the city, and they’re absolutely terrifying. The video gives you a glimpse of two different types of monster, the first is the zombie type, which kills and somehow turns people. They have bulbous eyes and walk on all fours, but they hate any sort of light.
These zombie enemies are controlled by keepers, hulking flesh things that resemble some sort of soviet era machine. The keeper will capture anyone who’s been taken out by a zombie, dragging them away with the same tool used for capturing abandoned dogs or crocodiles.
I honestly can’t get enough of Twin Soul. I think it’s a fantastic-looking horror game that needs to be released soon. Given the platforms, you’d have thought that a 2020 release date was on the cards, but that may not happen if they don’t get the game made in time. It’s worth checking out the official site for yourself to see more about Twin Soul, you won’t regret it.
