Half-Priced Horror (and a sneak peek behind the scenes)

With Halloween rearing its ugly head, we're getting in the spirit of things with our biggest discount yet. For the next week, you can enjoy total terror, at half the price.

Those of you who've already played the game will want to check out this interview — featuring a few familiar voices. In this wide-ranging interview, you'll hear all about about Narcosis' critically acclaimed voiceover work — from the actors themselves.

And if you like what you've heard, please consider supporting the Level with Emily podcast — it's a smart, insightful celebration of the oft-unsung creators that work so hard to make the games you play, sound their best.

Narcosis is 33% off, and now with Oculus Touch support!

Want to cool down from the summer heat?

Now's the chance, enjoy the cold depths at 33% off during the Steam summer sales.



Occulus Touch Support

Adding to our support to VR platforms, we want to make sure that you can play on these with the associated input methods.
Now, as we already discussed with some of you in the forums, we won't be able to support full motion controls, as that would require a significant amount of rework.

That said, you can now enjoy Narcosis using Oculus Touch controllers, with the following (for now) fixed control scheme :
  • Stick (Left Touch) : Movement
  • Stick (Right Touch) : Rotation
  • A (Right Touch) : Use/Menu validation
  • B (Right Touch) : Cancel
  • Y (Left Touch) : Recenter VR sensor
  • Trigger (Left Touch) : Knife
  • Trigger (Right Touch) : Flares
  • Grip (Any Touch) : Thruster
  • Menu key (L touch) : Menu

Vive controllers support is coming up as well, just need a bit more work.

Changelist [v1.1.3.18535]
  • Oculus Touch Support (see above)
  • Fixed the achievements "Signs of Life" and "Memento Mori" that didn't trigger for some people. If you're among them, they should unlock once you launch the game with this new update. (Thanks to Altermind for helping out with this)
  • Balanced a bit oxygen supplies in some levels.

“...So much more than a few gimmicky jump-scares. A beautifully written, immersive psychological thriller which tells a compelling, tragic story... Narcosis is a shining example of a psychological thriller done right, and a must play for any horror junkie.”
90% – Gaming Trend

“...Well paced and immersive ... Every facet of Narcosis feels singular, from the surprising narrative to the well rendered, unique setting. The foreboding sense of dread and unpredictability makes for one of the most exceptional survival horror gaming experiences.”
8/10 – Modern Horrors

“...a unique experience that grabs you and doesn’t let go until the very end... Narcosis is a triumph, managing to get under your skin and stay there long after you’ve put the pad down.”
8/10 – GameSpew

About This Game

Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean: Stranded on the seafloor with low light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out.

Conceived as a student project, this first person survival story unfolds following an industrial catastrophe, from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin." Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.

Features:
  • Pressure Kills: High-stress situations accelerate oxygen intake, distorting sight, sound, space and time.
  • Hostile Waters: A knife, flashlight and flares are essential to surviving the nightmarish flora and fauna of the abyss.
  • Phantom Narrative: The survivor’s account unfolds in inexplicable ways alongside the player’s journey.
  • Beyond Good and Evil: No shadowy organizations or eldritch terrors at Narcosis’ dark heart, only primal fears and human limits.
  • Terror Verite: Primal fears — darkness, confinement and isolation — take on new levels of immersion when experienced in VR.

About Honor Code:
Based in France and California, Honor Code’s collective resume includes such games and series as Assassin’s Creed, Dance Central, Metal Gear Solid, Remember Me, Republique, The Silent Age, and Silent Hill.
