Tune in for this one
Chasing Static, the retro psychological horror game from the twisted minds of developer Headware Games and publisher Ratalaika Games S.L., creeps from the darkest Welsh forests and onto Switch today. The game is normally priced at $15, but there’s a 20% discount until Jan. 29th, 2023, dropping the price to just $12.
The dark woods of rural North Wales welcome back the prodigal son Chris Selwood, returning to attend the funeral of his late father. After a pit stop for a hot coffee and a break from the rain with the diner’s waitress, Aneira, his world turns upside down after an unknown terror pins her to the ceiling. Chris awakens later after the shock dispatches him momentarily, and finds himself in the same diner, now broken, rusty, and inexplicably worn with age.
Left with many questions, Chris turns to his estranged father’s journal, filled to the brim with strange and seemingly unrelated notes. With a semblance of knowledge in hand, he must explore the blackened ruins now surrounding him for answers. Chris finds he’s not alone, however, as terrifying horrors and monsters now stalk his surroundings, waiting to tear him apart with violent glee.
Chris must survive with the help of the Frequency Displacement Monitoring Device, a tool capable of deciphering sounds and the conversations of spirits long departed. Discover clues for puzzles and paint an image of what the dead experienced before their demise. Experience hi-fi sound design setting the eerie stage, with full voice acting.
Explore dark forests, abandoned buildings, and a ghost town, in first-person perspective, all rendered in a low-poly visual style reminiscent of late-1990s and early-2000s survival horror classics. Chase signals in the static revealing clues to the fate of the waitress and secrets of his father, while avoiding otherworldly foes pursuing Chris.
Chasing Static will include English language voice acting and English, French, German, Spanish, Russian and Japanese text.
