If you’re a fan of the way the Silent Hill series explored the ghosts of its protagonists’ pasts, you might want to keep an eye on Husk. It promises to be a first-person narrative horror game very much in the vein of Keiichiro Toyama’s disturbing classic. According to its creators, it will offer a “down-to-earth storyline touching problems of violence and alcohol addiction,” both of which make their presence known in the trailer above.
It’s unusual to find a horror game that deals with the mental health impact of abuse and childhood trauma without relying on stigmatizing stereotypes — so here’s hoping Husk will be one of the good ones.[via Kotaku]
