It looks like the Bloober team is working on three unannounced games
It looks like the Bloober team will be very busy for years to come. The Polish developer recently signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Konami, fueling rumors of a silent Hill revival being developer by the studio, but it looks like they have a lot more irons in the fire.
As reported on Reddit, Bloober Team has received funding from the European Commission’s Creative Europe Media program, and brief overviews of three of the games that received this funding are available on the Creative Europe website. Each of these three are listed under code names.
The first is H2O, which is very explicitly mentioned as Layers of fear 3. “The commercial success of Layers of fear, along with the continued interest expressed by players in a sequel, convinced Bloober Team to start working on another game in the series, ”the summary said. “H2O (working title) will be a hidden horror game designed to deliver high quality and refined gameplay. Hidden Horror combines the two most important aspects of a game from a player’s point of view: a high level of emotions during the game and a unique gripping narrative. The main goal of the design team is to create a game world that will build on selected aspects and ideas of the original. Layers of fear. “It is also mentioned that the end of the game will be affected by the actions of the players throughout the game.
Then there is Black, which sounds particularly interesting. It’s a game set in the Middle Ages and sees you battling aliens, which is a pretty unique combination, to say the least. The combat is largely melee-driven and “sparse” throughout the game, and it seems the focus is mostly on stealth and survival. There are also moral choices, and at least two different ends to which they can lead.
The third game has the working title Dum Spiro, and takes place during World War II. He sees you play as a young boy imprisoned in a Polish ghetto, your main objective being to save your sister. “Although at first glance the game looks as presented from the first person point of view, the goal and the main distinguishing feature of the game is the destruction of the so-called ‘fifth wall’ separating the player from the story. presented, “says the summary. Again, the game is expected to feature a branching storyline, with players being presented with major decisions at the end of each of its three acts, which will impact the progression of the game.
What’s interesting is that each of these three games – H2O, black, and Dum Spiro – is also listed on the Bloober Team website. It remains to be seen when exactly we’ll hear more about this, but it’s clear the Bloober team has a lot to do.
