If you like the idea of playing as the shape-shifting creature from John Carpenter’s The Thing, you’ll want to keep your eyes on Carrion, a Metroidvania-like adventure from Phobia Game Studio. Today, during the Devolver Direct livestream, Carrion was shown and given a July 23 release date for Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
In Carrion, you control a monster that feeds on humans, grows larger, and uses its many tentacles to navigate an underground facility. Playing as a bad guy is one thing, but playing as a bad guy with a form you can’t really wrap your brain around is something entirely different. With Maneater, another game that gives you control of a beast, already hitting this year to much success, I can’t wait to see what Carrion has to offer.
If you can’t wait until July 23 to try it, you can download a “Sneak Peek” demo now on Steam. If you simply want more details, check out our “Four Reasons to Keep an Eye on this Monster Mash” preview.
