CONSCRIPT is Lo-Fi Survival Horror Set In World War 1

Published: April 22, 2020 1:51 PM /



If you're a fan of classic survival horror games, a brand-new indie work is on the way that might just tickle your fancy. CONSCRIPT is an upcoming game set in World War 1, and the one-man developer team is aiming to make the horrors of the Great War even scarier.

Check out the chilling CONSCRIPT Reveal Trailer to see what's in store:

As highlighted on ResetEra, this upcoming game features a lone French soldier who is searching for his brother on the fields of battle. This also happens to be taking place during the Battle of Verdun, a nearly year-long conflict that had almost a million casualties and is one of the costliest battles in world history.

Aside from some pretty cool lo-fi graphics, players will get to enjoy all of the lovely throwback survival horror mechanics. Solve puzzles, conserve your ammo, and do your best not to get torn to shreds by the enemy.

It doesn't look like this will be a purely historical tale, either. While enemy forces were certainly terrifying during the Great War, something seems a little off with the enemies in this game. (It's probably all of that creepy crawling on the ground.)


When is the CONSCRIPT Release Date?

If you love classic survival horror, CONSCRIPT is probably the game for you. When will you be able to get it?

Unfortunately, there isn't much in the way of details on the release date for this upcoming survival horror game. All we know for now is that Catchweight Studio is aiming to get it out the door sometime in 2020.

Still, this does look pretty darn cool and it may be well worth your time. For now, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.
