NSFW: The Dark Inside Me Brings a New Perspective to Horror

Guilty or not guilty? Right from the very beginning, players are tossed into a world where they can’t be sure what has happened. All they know is they must find a way to escape. The Dark Inside Me “blurs the lines between drama and horror” as players make decisions that will alter the future events in the game. Kill the person who blocks the way or find another route? All decisions have consequences (perhaps that person was going to be an ally later on), and players have to do what is best for them – or be stuck dealing with the aftermath.

While The Dark Inside Me plays like a point-and-click adventure game, there are action scenes, as well as mature themes including torture, fights, and sexual situations. The game takes place throughout many different environments with 3-D playable characters in detailed 2-D scenes. Travel through different buildings, and take vehicles to different locations to solve the puzzles.

Akcay Karaazmak, a horror movie director who worked on movies like Reminiscence: The Beginning, is the creator of The Dark Inside Me. He hopes to bring a unique viewpoint to this psychological horror. The goal of the game is to “reflect the real characteristic of a player” and “see how far players would push their limits through the stages of the game.”

Under the direction of Karaazmak, Blue Arc Studios is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of The Dark Inside Me. There’s a playable alpha demo available, and the game has already been Greenlit on Steam.

The Dark Inside Me is slated for release at the end of 2016 for PC, Mac, and Linux systems. For those interested in learning more, follow Karaazmak on Twitter, and “like” the game’s page on Facebook.
