Ebb Software’s Scorn is an upcoming survival game about which we’ve been hearing for years. Scorn was first announced in 2014 with a trailer that showed pre-alpha footage of the game. It was first planned as a two-part game but the idea was later shelved.
Come 2022, we are finally on the verge of Scorn’s launch after about 7 years. Today Ebb Software dropped a brief teaser for the game. The teaser revealed that the release date has been moved forward by a week.
Scorn Release Moved Forward
Originally planned for October 21, 2022, Scorn will now release a week early on October 14, 2022. You can watch the date announcement trailer here:
More about the Game
The trailers reveal that scorn is one of those games that are so scary that the effects are there even after you’re done. Ebb Studios also recently defined that Scorn really is a puzzle game with a nightmarish setting. Also, while the trailer show guns and whatnot, the game isn’t exactly a first-person shooter.
Participating in the Reddit AMA the developers stated:
Scorn is not a first person shooter, it is an immersive atmospheric horror experience. To emphasize this, puzzles within the game form an integral part of the story, and are designed not to feel like they were added as an afterthought. They enrich the player experience, and as the game progresses, it becomes apparent that everything seems to have a reason and a purpose... and the big mystery is uncovering what that is. Yet there are shooting elements that come into play later in the game and are crucial for players' survival.‘
The devs also confirmed that there are no further chances of any delays. They also revealed that the game length will be about 6 to 8 hours depending on your play style and how many times you die in-game. It could take longer if you explore other areas during the gameplay too. However, a 6-8 hours length is quite weird considering how long they’ve taken the game to develop.
Nonetheless, we hope the game justifies its delays when it finally launched next month. We are excited to play the game and experience the horrors within. Till then stay tuned for further updates.
