Back in 1992, Digital Pictures released their interactive movie video game Night Trap for the Sega CD and 32X. The game was notorious as one of the titles mentioned during Congressional hearings in the early 90’s when video games were being blamed for causing violent behavior. Now, 25 years after it came out, Limited Run Games and Screaming Villains have announced that they will be releasing a limited edition physical copy run of the game, which has been remastered for Xbox One and Playstation 4!
A trailer announcing the upcoming remaster can be seen below. It also reveals that the anticipated release date will be sometime this Spring, so it doesn’t look like we have too long to wait!
Night Trap has the player take the role of a Special Control Attack Team agent, known by his teammates as “Control”. SCAT has been investigating the lake shore home of Victor and Sheila Martin, where 5 teenage girls recently disappeared during their vacation there. Last night SCAT sent in an agent to infiltrate the house, there he found a security system that controlled cameras in every room of the house, and various traps located throughout each. The agent programmed an override into the security system, so that Control can monitor the rooms and control the traps via a small remote. Five new girls are coming to the lake house for a vacation, so SCAT has sent in Kelli, an undercover SCAT operative along with them to infiltrate the house personally. It is the player’s job to protect Kelli and the other five girls from whatever problems they encounter.
