Occasionally as a writer for Rely on Horror I get weird emails that sometimes turn into things and sometimes don't. But it's been a while since I received one.

Anyways, I just got one in my email. The email title was, "horror...le3ak...Succumb Core OR Nowhere...more to come?", and all that was included were these two images. I image checked them, and haven't had any results. Consulted a friend and he says it reminds him of the original Unreal or Doom 4. Not sure, this could be absolutely nothing or it could be something, so I decided to ask GAF detectives, I am in your need!

Doom does usually have human characters though, it also could be some sci-fi thing. The email title mentions Succumb Core OR Nowhere, so I wonder if that has any importance. Emailed back, but doubt I'll get a reply.

Don't know my but my first thought was that a lot of it reminded me from the aliens in Contra.

Contra wouldn't be a horror title, so this is completely based on nothing and it won't turn up as this, but regardless, just an interesting perspective on it I thought.

Also, there's an alien gun. While that wasn't ever in contra still involves shooting.

SOMA looks very different though, and we've seen gameplay of it and a monster from the game. My hope is if no leads come something here will align with something seen at E3.

My guess is that's it's a level further into the game, as well as an enemy you'll find there.
SOMA's reveal trailer shows almost similar alien architecture, and this art seems to fit with the Amnesia:MFP and amnesia later levels.

I'd be in for a new horror IP though, because that e-mail is a teaser.

This is really neat looking, and gives me strong Giger vibes. The alien gun thing reminds me a bit of Conduit though.

Reminds me more of Beksinski than Giger really. It also reminds me of Tormentum.

For some reason I got the same vibe, I guess the gloomy, decaying, Giger-esque architecture reminds me of Nosgoth a little bit. The character looks like he could be a human that's turned into something else, there's definitely some element of body horror going on here.

I'm guessing a new Bomberman. /s

I think if there are similarities to SOMA here, it's due to the common influences of Giger/Alien. The underwater trailer for SOMA has nothing in common with this stuff. It's only the interior they revealed earlier with all the ribbed cables and ribbed floors/walls that bears some similarity, and that's basic Giger-inspired design.

I always saw Quake looking like this in my mind's eye, if only the tech had been there. We're at a point now where they could really do some cool cosmic horror shit if someone wanted to take that risk.

The last image shows a gun, it's way too gamey to me, imo it's not even a survival horror but a shooter.

Those holes on the back and the notches on the arms and legs could be slots to add weapons/armour/tools. Seems to be a cool concept as it is. I'm curious.
