Scorn: An H.R. Giger Inspired Hell
Scorn is a video game currently in development by Ebb Software. The development studio describes it as “an atmospheric first-person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry.” It appears their world takes heavy inspiration from the work of Swiss artist, H. R. Giger, whose artwork often featured a surreal melding of biological life and machine. This biomechanical style was adopted for many horror films, with Giger working on the creature designs for the original Alien and the 1995 sci-fi film Species.
About a year ago, a mysterious trailer popped up on the internet and from there the development team went silent.

Earlier this week, Ebb Software broke their silence, teasing a new gameplay trailer and looking for additional funds via Kickstarter. The gameplay trailer is an 8-minute look into the dark world of Scorn, complete with grotesque, pulsating wall apertures, abominations chasing the player through dank, narrow halls, and weapons that could be organisms in their own right.
Ebb Software plans to release the game in two parts, with the first installment set to release sometime next year. Scorn will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you would like to read more on details of the game, you can find Scorn’s Kickstarter campaign here. All backers are promised a demo before the campaign ends.
