A limited special offer is currently running. “Phantasmal” has a 20% launch discount during its first week of it’s release. Gamers are promised a terrifying gaming experience with an emphasis on unpredictability. Joe Chang, Eyemobi Team Lead shared the following on what to expect in “Phantasmal”. Chang states:
“A great horror game is one where you never know what’s coming next. By procedurally generating levels, creatures, and pickups, and then updating on the fly to suit players’ differing abilities, we’ve created a constant ‘edge of your seat’ experience that never repeats,”
A port to XBox One is in development with a planned release date for sometime in 2016. Also, “Phantasmal” will be released as a Virtual Reality (VR) compatible format.
Pre 1990’s Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City provides the backdrop to “Phantasmal”. The game is marketed as a throwback to survival horror video games of yesteryear. Stealth is the prime focus of the game substituting direct action oriented game play.
