Halloween may be more than just a few days away, but this year it’s already shaping up to be a spooky holiday to remember. One of the reasons behind all of the excitement is the release of a new cosmic horror game: Moons of Madness.

Published by Funcom and developed by Rock Pocket Games and Dreamloop Games, Moons of Madness will be coming out on October 31st, 2019, or Halloween. This new game will be made available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.

Moons of Madness does an excellent job of feeding on people’s fears of the unknown. Starting off with scientists being left in a confused state after receiving a strange and unexplainable signal from The Red Planet. The scientists have decided to keep the signal and its contents a secret from the general public. Instead, a secret organization makes the decision to build and place a research center on Mars.

Players of Moons of Madness will go through the game as the main protagonist, Shane Newehart. Shane Newehart is a tech that has been stationed at the research center on Mars. It seems he has a typical job of making sure all of the bells and whistles work, and that nothing goes seriously wrong.

Until things go seriously wrong. Shane Newehart is left to his own devices, alone and paranoid on a completely different planet, millions of miles from home. Players will follow Shane on a mission, learning about his past and what the future may bring. Moons of Madness places players directly into the unknown and surrounded by supernatural in-game elements that will make their heart race.

The trailer for Moons of Madness starts out by showing the post that has been placed on Mars and a conversation between Shane and what appears to be someone back on Earth. As the trailer plays through, we see that things for our main character quickly go downhill as time passes.

The trailer begins to fill our ears with eerie whispers and shows what appears to be a plethora of otherworldly beings, proving that our main character is not alone.

Moons of Madness has been inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft and has been crafted to be a truly unique form of horror and does an excellent job of creating an immersive experience for Moons of Madness players to truly experience fear and the sci-fi genre of first-person games.
