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

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.

    Looks like a game that looks interesting through videos, but will fail come review time.

    What the fuck is this? Since when do they actually develop games for this thing?

    This,and Suda 51's game for kinect are looking good,but not enought to trick me into buying the thing. If Capcom makes a game for it though.i'm screwed.

    Mmm. It. Could. WORK! Or maybe not. But still, nice try, judging by the look of it.

    I'm thinking someone is going to be eating turkey, jam and cereal sandwiches in this game.

    Isn't this kinect being pitched as "family entortaintment?" I am terrified/laughing at the thought of a family getting this.

    Huh. I'll have to keep my eye on this one.

    Looks interesting. I still say though that any survival game will need a lot of running on the spot, unless they make that part of it on-rails.
