First-person horror game for Kinect looks disturbing. Is full of screaming, torture etc

Rise of Nightmares definitely not for the Kinectimals crowd

TODO alt text

Another new Kinect title aimed squarely at fo' real gamers has emerged from this year's TGS. It's from Sega. It's called Rise of Nightmares. And - Judas Priest! - it has a pretty sinister trailer. This is an off-screen shaky-cam version of it, which thickens the atmosphere of low-budget horror pretty effectively.

WARNING: If flickering occult symbols, a cacophony of terrified screaming and 15th Century European artwork is likely to unsettle your nerves, you might want to think twice before watching.

It does look incredibly bleak and unpleasant. The Rise of Nightmares press release says: "Using their whole body the player will experience fear and tension as never before in this first person horror adventure."

I guess this means that Kinect really will be like something out of a bad dream.
