RedG Studios released new information about their horror adventure S.O.N, a game which suffered a delay after the studio encountered unforeseen development issues.
First off the studio had to replace a character Mr. Vamp, a vampire who debuted in the game’s first trailer and ended up causing the game to crash while running on the engine. In place of this character will be a new character named Carrie.
Next up, the forest will no longer be played through in the daytime, instead, players will only be able to adventure through the game at night. The developer mentioned that this was a struggle for them due to “hardware limitations and time restraints”. The new night forest has the same layout and they hope players find that it is a much more “intense” forest.
Lastly, the studio had to cut a room shown in their latest trailer which displayed 4 statues and the words “You’re going to die” are said. The developer had to cut and replace it to make it easier for the player to understand the story.
To end their stream of updates, the studio left on a high note by letting fans know that the scary person is seen in the trailers standing new a wall that reads “SIN” is still in the game, and he has friends. Also, the studio adds, “We have added new sections to the caves during this delay, new features and much more. We look forward to you adventuring through ClarenCaster soon!”
S.O.N takes place in a 300,000 Acre forest called Clarencaster located in southern Pennsylvania. In 2018, a mas number of people began to go missing in the forest, one of which happened to be the son of Robert Alderson, an unemployed man who drinks to deal with his memories. Robert goes looking for his son fueled by love but if that is enough to conquer the fear that lies within the forest is yet to be seen.
S.O.N is in development for PlayStation 4 and does not have a release date at this time.

Author’s take: I’m sure it was a tough choice to make, but I’m glad the studio is making progress.
