H.R. Giger Inspired FPS Scorn Releases Grotesque 14 Minute Gameplay Video

Last week, Ebb Software released a 14-minute long gameplay video for their upcoming title. Scorn is a first-person horror game. Taking heavy inspiration from H.R. Giger and Zdzisław Beksiński, Scorn is about as alien an environment as it gets.

The gameplay video of Scorn gives us a number of fascinating new details. For one, we now know that the game is, on some level, a first-person shooter. But clearly, Scorn is not your average run-and-gun FPS. The movement is significantly slower-paced than most. Even with a sprint button, this creates a much more careful and methodical gameplay flow.

The next FPS element of importance is the guns. But although you may certainly point and shoot them, I don’t know if you can even call the things we see in this video guns. As is typical in the H.R. Giger style, the guns in Scorn are somewhere in between organic and mechanical. Opening up your weapon to reload shows organs and flesh, and occasionally, it makes an animalistic sound.

Another new detail we see is the character we play as. Not entirely, just their arms and legs. Scorn has you playing as someone who is about as human as you could expect in this environment. All the parts, but just a little off and interwoven with strange machinery. Also, it’s worth noting that we see that their legs are bare, suggesting that you run around this hellscape as a nude monstrosity.

The whole thing is truly grotesque. I love it. The game will be available on Xbox Series X and PC. For more information, check out the Scorn website by clicking here.
