Funcom's The Park Trailer

If you’re looking for a horror game to play this Halloween and don’t have time for a longer title such as Alien: Isolation or The Evil Within, for example, The Park might just be what you need.

The game comes from developer Funcom, and is described as a “psychological horror experience” set in an amusement park. It’s only one or two hours long, so it’s closer to watching a movie than playing a game…only you’re controlling the movie. I love games like this—quick, cinematic experiences that don’t cost as much as the full-price AAA titles that get released.

You can read more about The Park and check out the launch trailer along with a bonus video diving deeper into what the game is all about below.

A DAY AT THE PARK… A MISSING CHILD

As the sun sets over Atlantic Island Park, you must explore its dilapidated rides in search of your son, Callum. As darkness falls, you will experience panic and paranoia through a narrative written by a team of award winning storytellers.

KEY FEATURES

EXPLORE Atlantic Island Park and step onto rides such as the Ferris Wheel, the Bumper Cars and the Rollercoaster; just beware, some of them have a life of their own.

ENTER THE MIND of Lorraine, a woman facing every parent’s worst nightmare, and unravel her story as well as the dark and tragic history of the park.

CALL OUT FOR CALLUM to respond, and interact with the environment around you while examining clues and listening to Lorraine’s own inner voice as the game progresses.

STATE OF THE ART graphics and audio deliver a uniquely atmospheric setting rich in mood and mystery, developed by a team of award-winning AAA developers.

There is, sadly, a bit of a downer for some of us who want to play this game, myself included. It’s only available on PC at the moment, so us console gamers will have to wait and hope it might branch out in the future.

If you do your gaming on PC you can grab The Park right now on Steam, Greenman Gaming, the Humble Store, Gamersgate, and the Nvidia Store.

Videos


Set in a creepy amusement park hiding a dark and sinister secret, The Park is a one to two hour long first-person psychological horror experience focusing on intense storytelling and exploration instead of combat and action. As the sun sets over Atlantic Island Park, you must explore its dilapidated rides in search of your son Callum and experience panic and paranoia through a narrative written by award winning storytellers.


‘The Park’ puts players into the shoes of Lorraine, a mother whose son goes missing in a mysterious and creepy theme park. When night falls and the lights go out, you must face an emotional and terrifying journey through an amusement park where a dark and sinister secret is just waiting to be uncovered.
