E3 2012: Survival Horror lives on in Sacrilegium

One of the disappointments coming out of E3 this year, is the apparent lack of games that will force us to change underwear on a consistent basis. Sure, Resident Evil 6 and Dead Space 3 look like some fantastic fun, but not the kind of fun that makes us confuse paranormal activity for a genuine thrills and chills.

And then out of the blue, Sacrilegium appeared. Could this be the game that puts the horror back in the genre?

Reality Pump Studio is currently developing the game, for PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Mac, for sometime in the near future. Here’s their official synopsis of the game:

The story is about Alex, a 20-year Californian – smart, friendly and independent. She’s a college student that while fully aware of her breathtaking beauty, she never is looking to use it to her advantage.

Keeping in shape with combat and self-defense training, she’s honed specific martial art skills that will come to her aid during her perilous journey through the province of “Sacrilegium”. Being the adventurous type, she jumps head first into a maelstrom of events, descending with her friends into a world beyond the known reality.

The complex and multifaceted action drives the young heroine half around the globe, from the foggy banks of San Francisco to the remotest corners of Europe.

Reality Pump’s previous games include The Earth 2140-50 games, as well as Two Worlds and its sequel. Still, Sacrilegium sounds intriguing so far, like a blend of Indiana Jones and nightmare fuel.
