Blooper Team, the developer behind Layers of Fear and Blair Witch, has teased that it is about to announce a new game, with strong hints toward a sequel to its 2017 psychological horror indie title Observer.
A tweet, which was accompanied by the hashtags #cyberpunk and #horrorgame, included a 30-second teaser that simply shows “Incoming Call,” surrounded by loud white noise and static from a phone call.
The original game was a first-person shooter where you take on the role of a Polish police officer with the ability to hack implants within people’s brains, and, as you might expect for a psychological horror game, the results lead you down a rabbit hole. The game also includes detective elements and RPG-style dialogue trees when speaking to the various in-game characters.
Observer released on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017, with a Switch port landing last year, and was met with a positive response critically and with fans. The quality of the concept was enough to convince American production company Zero Gravity to pick up the rights to the game and announce a film adaptation in late 2017 (link in Polish).
While the tweet doesn’t explicitly state that the game is a sequel, with the success behind the first and the potential film adaptation coming in the future, continuing exposure to the game can only bring more success for Blooper Team.
