Listen up, horror connoisseurs. The cyberpunk horror game, >observer_, is the dark, dystopian nightmare you’ve been waiting for.

This fresh first-person exploration game from Bloober takes your idea of the future and turns it into the most devastating dystopia one can imagine. You think things are bad now? Try living in 2084, where an all-powerful corporation hacks into people’s brains. Yeah, the game is that creepy.

You play Detective Dan Lazarski, a neural detective known as an observer (hence the name of the game). Your job? To hack into suspects’ minds and witness their crimes in twisted detail. You’ll experience their demented fears firsthand as you dive deeper and deeper into the darkest cyberpunk world imaginable.

Think you’re brave enough to confront your fears? You can get >observer_ for $22.99 from the Daily Dot store, reduced from the original price of $29.99.
