Darkly scanned: Dark Matter coming mid-October

Iceberg Interactive have announced that Dark Matter, Interwave Studios’ 2.5D Metroidvania-ish survival horror title, will be hitting Steam (and retail, in western Europe) in mid-October.

Dark Matter didn’t do tremendously on Kickstarter but it presumably showed enough promise that Iceberg Interactive picked it up for publishing. Peter certainly enjoyed what he played of the game – which sees you exploring a dimly-lit, alien-infested spaceship from a side-on perspective – which is usually a pretty good indication that a game is worth your attention.

So, if you fancy some space-based side-on horror, mark mid-October on your calendar. And if your calendar doesn’t have a “mid-October” section, maybe just circle the entire month in red.

A batch of new screenshots follow.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
