Scorn Brings H.R. Giger Inspiration to a First Person Horror Adventure

During the Inside Xbox May Update live stream, Ebb Software unveiled Scorn, an atmospheric first-person horror adventure inspired by the biomechanical art of H.R. Giger, coming to Xbox Series X around the launch.

The visually powerful and unnerving reveal trailer feature a montage of creatures and environments players can expect from the atmospheric game.

Independent developer Ebb Software details the Scorn as horror adventure where “ the environment is itself a character, and will do its best to unsettle and unbalance you.” Scorn takes place in a claustrophobic underworld “populated with misshapen organic forms dripping with unnamed fluids.” Players have to venture through different locations, each with its own puzzles, characters, and story. Through the adventure, players will unlock new areas, skills, weapons, and items in order to understand the unfolding reality of Scorn.

“For us as developers, it’s imperative to present Scorn in the best way possible. The distinctive art style is only half the story – the other half is having all the technical parts of the game running smoothly,” says game director Ljubomir Peklar, when speaking about being on Xbox. “The Series X is a competent piece of hardware that will enable us to run Scorn at 4k 60fps with all the graphical bells and whistles … Players on Series X will experience an uncompromising version of Scorn.”

Scorn will be available exclusively on Xbox Series X when the game launches. It will also be available on PC via Microsoft Store and Steam. No date has been announced.
