It is Halloween season, which signifies it is the best time to emerge from your fetid den to bludgeon scientists with writhing tentacles and pseudopods. Yes, this is Carrion, the 2D platformer that casts you as a extended-lost relative of the alien entity from John Carpenter’s The Point. For the subsequent week, you can attempt Carrion out for cost-free ahead of its complete launch, which is planned for sometime subsequent year.
Carrion is, in a word, disgusting. But it is disgusting in a way that Joel discovered oddly charming when he attempted it out earlier this year. The basic thought is to slink about, oozing your way via crevices and ductwork, popping out like a meat explosion to rend hapless humans limb from limb and devour them.
It sounds rather grim, but Carrion comes across with sufficient unfettered adolescent glee that the complete affair in fact ends up getting weirdly adorable, if you are the sort of individual who can get beyond the complete pixel art splatterhouse horror issue. And if that is you, excellent news: this amorphous blob of murderous flesh moves with a quite satisfying sense of weight and agility.
As Rock Paper Shotgun reports, the Carrion ‘sneak peak’ will be offered till Saturday, November two, which offers you specifically a week to attempt your thumbs at smashing scientists and engineers against the walls of what ever questionable underground facility you have awoken inside. You can locate it on Steam.
Soon after that, we’ll have to wait till the Carrion release date, which at the moment is set for some unspecified time in 2020.
