Moons of Madness

Back in March we saw an announcement trailer for Moons of Madness, a Lovecraftian cosmic horror game which is set on Mars. Now a launch trailer has been released to mark its arrival…at least on one platform.

In the game you play as a technician stationed on a base that’s been built on Mars. When strange things begin happening, you’re only option is to go about your duties. And even when these strange things grow more and more terrifying, and you’re left wondering if it’s real or just in your head, you can only investigate what’s happening. Stuck on another planet. Millions of miles from Earth.

You can find more info on Moons of Madness, the launch trailer, and a bonus gameplay teaser and 12-minute gameplay demo below.

A MYSTERIOUS SIGNAL HAS BEEN RECORDED COMING FROM THE RED PLANET

The message confounded Orochi scientists. Their analysts broke it down and determined it was of intelligent origin. Orochi management immediately concluded that the discovery was too sensitive for public knowledge and moved to keep it hidden. In secret, the corporation began construction of Invictus, a state-of-the-art Mars research outpost designed to identify the true nature of the message.

You are Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus and your security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of the mysterious signal. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties.

Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. The security system is on lockdown, the greenhouse is flooded, and there is Martian dust leaking into the infirmary. Things are starting to fall apart.

You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real… or are you slowly descending into madness?

EXPERIENCE TRUE COSMIC HORROR

With your only hope of rescue millions of miles away, you will be forced to explore the real-world fears of isolation and paranoia, enhanced with supernatural elements and cosmic horror. Terrifying visions and monstrous apparitions will make you question what is real and what is not as the very fabric of reality threatens to tear at the seams.

EXPLORE THE DARKER SIDE OF MARS

Navigate a functioning Mars base in a game that uses non-fiction elements to immerse players in a believable setting. Overcome obstacles using computers, electrical systems, rovers, solar panels and more, then go beyond the outpost and explore the darker side of Mars.

Moons of Madness draws upon the rich lore and mythology of Funcom’s Secret World Legends. Both games exist in the same thematic universe, but playing one is not a prerequisite to enjoy the other.

Moons of Madness is available to play right now on PC, and will be released on consoles on January 21, 2020.

Trailer


Moons of Madness is a first-person, story-driven cosmic horror game where the scientific exploration of Mars meets the supernatural dread of Lovecraft.
