Get Even Gets Weird in New Trailer
Although it’s being released this month, we still don’t know a whole lot about Bandai Namco’s survival horror game Get Even. Developed by The Farm 51, it was originally announced back in 2014, and then fell off the radar until it resurfaced last year. It’s set in an abandoned asylum, with you playing as a guy called Cole Black who has lost his memories, but we don’t know too much else.
A new trailer was released today on Bandai Namco’s YouTube channel, and as with everything else about the game, it’s pretty damn mysterious. It doesn’t say much about the plot, but it does have a dude impersonating the Mad Hatter from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, as if things weren’t already creepy enough. It looks like we’re in for one incredibly creepy adventure when Get Even launches on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on May 26.
Black – an ice-cold mercenary and hired gun – awakes in a mysterious old asylum with no memory of his past.
Under the guidance of his anonymous captor, ‘Red’, Black embarks on a form of treatment, facilitated by a unique technology – a headset that allows the user to relive their memories and experience them again in the present.
And so Black tries to remember.
With the help of the ‘Pandora’ headset, he travels into the depths of his own mind to explore the truth behind the only thing he can remember: the failed rescue attempt of a teenage girl with a bomb strapped to her chest.
Following leads and information gathered by Red, Black begins to piece together the kidnapping plot of the girl he failed to save.
Yet the more Black uncovers, the more questions he has. Who’s Jasper? Can Red really be trusted? And what is this ‘other life’ Black keeps seeing glimpses of?
Black needs answers before he ends up like his fellow inmates, before he finally loses his mind, and before the Asylum takes him over for good.
