Publisher Funcom and the developers at Rock Pocket Games today announced Moons of Madness, a cosmic horror game coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Set on Mars in a not-so-distant future, Moons of Madness mixes the scientific exploration of the red planet with the supernatural dread of Lovecraftian horror.
In Moons of Madness you play Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus, a secret research base built by the Orochi group. Your low security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of a mysterious, intelligent signal that has been detected as coming from the red planet. 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. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team has yet to return from their EVA mission. 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?
Moons of Madness releases during the Halloween season 2019.
