October 11, 2013 - Strange occurrences have disrupted the routines of the PATHOS-2 research facility. The radio is silent. Behavioral anomalies of the machines are increasingly dangerous, if not...malevolent. The facility is devolving into chaos. No weapons, and the only escape is practically unthinkable.

From Frictional Games, creators of the groundbreaking Amnesia and Penumbra series, SOMA is an aberrant tale of scientific inquiry and survival; an entropic exploration of synapse and circuit that wades through the delusions of human consciousness.

Hello everyone!

You didn't hear anything from us for a long time, and now we would like to tell you about the the project's current state. We have not abandoned the development - have been working on the modification all this time. The most important info at the moment: We decided to split the game into two parts and initially release the first chapter (can call it episode), and release the full version later. Most of the materials have already been produced for the first chapter. We don't have exact ETA (release date) yet, but we hope that the wait won't last too long.

Possible spoiler alert.

IMO, the premise of 'SOMA' is equivalent that of the quantum cat in popular science. The point is, you cannot know until you open the box, 'butcher the mystery'; but until then, the cat is both dead and alive, both at once, theoretically speaking - according to a leading way of interpretation. Perhaps, the parallel dimensions, interfering successfully until you divide them by actually standing in between the way of communication, in order to satiate your want of certainty: to pinpoint the state of things for your current dimension only. To gain ontological warranty. Philosophy in 'SOMA' is a quantum superposition problem.

Good game but bad engine. You need to have the latest processor, a large amount of RAM and the latest graphic card on the market to running this ****. Crysis 3 run well on E8400 with 4 gb of RAM.
30 fps with on i5!!! Frame drop, freezing...
The engine sucks.
Not reccomended.

Basically the best horror game ever, next to Undying. It is amazing just how phenomenal everything in this game is, but mostly story, of course. 11/10.

I haven't been so scared from a chase in a while. Glad to see Frictional Games come out with another lovely game. Definitely in my top five.

I thought Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent were without a doubt the top two best horror games ever made, yet somehow SOMA tops them in pretty much every regard. It's a spectacle, maybe even a once in a lifetime game sadly, and it's what makes horror a worthwhile genre. Tell your friends about this game!
