Greyhill Incident is a new horror game about a small village trying to survive the threat of alien invasion.
When it comes to horror games, aliens are surprisingly little used. While aliens have appeared a lot in shooters and action games, it’s relatively rare to see them in pure horror titles. That’s what will make the upcoming survival horror title Greyhill Incident so compelling as it features classic-style aliens and UFOs in the setting of a horror game.
Developer Refugium Games released a teaser trailer for Greyhill Incident earlier this month. Greyhill Incident will be set in 1992 in the town of Greyhill, where strange events occur that the villagers cannot explain. The inhabitants of Greyhill solved the problem themselves, fortifying their homes in an effort to await an extraterrestrial threat.
The main character named Ryan Baker is tasked with uncovering Greyhill’s secret with only a baseball bat and a revolver. Baker will need to avoid being found by hostile aliens, while helping his neighbors by completing various missions. Greyhill Incident will be a first-person horror game that looks somewhat reminiscent of other first-person horror titles like Outlast.
Even Greyhill Incident’s graphics look a lot like Outlast, but it’s also reminiscent of alien invasion movies, especially M.’s 2002 sci-fi thriller Signs. Night Shyamalan. Greyhill Incident will not only have farmlands and cornfields to explore, but also various creepy dark houses.
Currently Greyhill Incident is only released on PC, so it seems that gamers using other platforms will have to wait for information from the developer to know if the game will launch on consoles or not. PC gamers will be able to find out what happens to Brandon and the rest of Greyhill’s residents when the game launches next year. Console versions would be possible if the game garners enough interest, but nothing about that has been announced at the moment.
Greyhill Incident’s alien invasion theme will help it stand out from the sea of horror games that are about to launch, but this isn’t the only alien invasion game in development. develop. Actually August will see the launch of a new Destroy All Humans game called Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed. However, while Greyhill Incident is a serious horror game project, Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed is a humorous action game.
