Decay surrounds you, dread around every corner. You feel imprisoned while traversing the endless hallways... Asylum is a chilling journey through the intricate floors of the Hanwell Mental Institute, in which unimaginable atrocities have occurred in the past. This horror adventure aims to marry cutting edge visuals with thrilling storytelling to give you the ultimate experience in fear.
The highly anticipated horror adventure game has joined the ranks of Kickstarter projects with a campaign as wacky as it is creepy. After four years of production, the Senscape team aims to fund the final lap of development with the help of the community. Inspired by the writings of H. P. Lovecraft and building upon the success of cult hit Scratches, Asylum has recently enjoyed a new burst of popularity following a successful campaign on Steam Greenlight, after which it became the first game from Argentina to be Greenlit by Valve. Similarly, it happens to be the first game ever on Kickstarter from the country.
Featuring some of the most unusual Kickstarter rewards yet, backers have the chance to become permanent denizens of the Hanwell Mental Institute, the massive virtual asylum where the game takes place, by, among others, appearing as dead inmates in the morgue or being themselves residents of their very own cell. "The number one request from fans has been that they want to become part of this engrossing setting we have created," said project leader and designer Agustín Cordes. "And we have listened."
