Carrion, carry on killing – Still Brewing

What Do We Know So Far?

Firstly, we know that a trailer exists, and it looks really good.

Who are behind Carrion?

Phobia Game Studios, despite their name, have proven themselves unafraid to helm this game. Devolver Digital are in charge of publishing.

What kind of game will it be?

While the game is essentially a Metroidvania title. With a lot of map-based exploration on a 2D map. Phobia have decided to change things up by making you the bad guy. This is a new genre that they call “reverse horror” as in Carrion, YOU are the horror.

You play as an amorphous blob which is either an experiment or a captive. The origin of the creature is mysterious and that is by design.

Where will we find it?

Carrion is set for a wide release. Not only is it coming to PC/Steam, and consoles, it’s also confirmed for both Linux and Mac. So no matter what your choice of gaming is. Whether it be PC, PS4, Xbox One, Mac, Nintendo Switch or even Linux. You’ll be able to stalk and devour your prey anywhere.

When can we get it?

All platforms are listing a confirmation of June 1st, 2020 for release. However, the world of gaming especially Indie gaming is not always so convenient, so be sure to check in again closer to the date for confirmation.

More info required!

In Carrion, you play as an amorphous unknown entity. Imprisoned by scientists you escape and do the only thing an amorphous blob creature can do…stalk and devour as many of your captors as possible.

The look and functionality of the blob is somewhat similar to the parasite from HyperParasite. However, where HyperParasite is a top-down twin-stick shooter where you take over your enemies temporarily. Carrion is a 2D side-scroller platformer or Metroidvania, where you absorb your enemies for more power. From the trailer, I’m also sort of reminded of the opening of the game Dead Cells. However, even as another Metroidvania game, Carrion looks markedly different still.

And lastly, there is also a John Carpenter’s The Thing vibe, with the blob and the facility. Carrion looks to be a blood and gore-soaked experience. And personally, I can’t wait.

We here at Sip Read Repeat hope to bring you a full review when we can. Check back later and keep gaming and drinking (coffee).
