0 comments by AgustinCordes on Feb 13th, 2013

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."

I like this game's atmosphere. but I don't like point and click.
How about adding option that players can choose 'point and click' or 'free-move' just like Myst 5?

sorry for my bad english.

Just been playing the teaser and all I can say is how brilliant I am sure the final game will be. The graphics are amazing, the voice acting is really good and the atmosphere is terrifying. I really hope you release more teasers/demo's for us to play. Really fun guys, keep it up!

@MJCabell Ah, fair enough. But you wouldn’t mind if the game was on Early Access then? Meaning you would still wait.

Oct 27 2014, 9:33am

@MJCabell But Wasteland 2 did Early Access. What do you mean?

Oct 27 2014, 5:48am

@fenderbenter @theironguardian That's the point: if some people are willing to play the game as a WIP earlier, then why not?
