The contempt is so frightening that it has infiltrated my dreams of real life

Contempt is rare. If you’ve been following the upcoming atmospheric horror game from Ebb Software and Kepler Interactive up to this point, you already know. If you’ve seen any of the promotional materials that have come out over the last nine years or so… you already know. If you’ve ever heard the developers call their game a labor of love set in a “nightmare universe of strange shapes and a gloomy tapestry,” you’re right, you know. Before I played a 45-minute demo segment of Scorn at Gamescom, I already knew this. And yet, despite having seen the game’s grotesque and disturbing HR Giger meets Zdzislaw Beksinski and HP Lovecraft-inspired world that’s dripping with blood and gore multiple times in trailers and screenshots since late 2014, I still walked out thinking: Scorn is really fucking weird.

It’s been about a month since I played the Scorn demo segment on the Koelnmesse show floor. And it’s so weird that I’m still thinking about it today.
