Basically Thalassophobia: The Game

SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.

The radio is dead, food is running out, and the machines have started to think they are people. Underwater facility PATHOS-II has suffered an intolerable isolation and we’re going to have to make some tough decisions. What can be done? What makes sense? What is left to fight for?

Enter the world of SOMA and face horrors buried deep beneath the ocean waves. Delve through locked terminals and secret documents to uncover the truth behind the chaos. Seek out the last remaining inhabitants and take part in the events that will ultimately shape the fate of the station. But be careful, danger lurks in every corner: corrupted humans, twisted creatures, insane robots, and even an inscrutable omnipresent A.I.
You will need to figure out how to deal with each one of them. Just remember there’s no fighting back, either you outsmart your enemies or you get ready to run.

This has been out for a while, hasn’t it? Or was that another game?

Okay, thought so. I think you missed it while in England.

Things I don’t think I want to play: this.

I’ve got this, but horror games make me scream like a little girl. Side-note/shameless plug: I played an hour and a half of Emily Wants to Play on Saturday. If you need some cheap laughs, go check it out.

I’ve played through a fair bit of this and it’s not that scary. The story is pretty entertaining.
