This one is not being developed by thechineseroom so it should be a lot better than AMFP.

Website contains gameplay teaser trailer and other clips under files. I think it looks fantastic and who doesn't love Scifi horror? I consider this the spiritual successor to The Dark Descent.

Watched them both a little while ago. Looks really interesting but absolutely nothing there is even relevant to the 'GAME'. Show me something besides a well done short film and I might be a little more interested. Hell, if it were a movie, I'd still be interested but as it stands, the promotional stuff on this game is just a couple shorts with real actors. That doesn't tell us much of anything.

If I sat here on the merit of those 2 shorts and imagined what the game would be like, I'd probably set myself up for disappointment. Calling it the next generation system shock based on those videos seems like you just set yourself up for said disappointment.

Actually I did... derp.

Still looks a lot more like amnesia in space than system shock. :P

While the gameplay might not resemble system shock I believe the concept of machines/AIs gaining awareness shares a similar thing. After all Soma means "body". In the short with the woman who is trying to bring up the display on the machine on the table, at the end of the video she sees herself but doesn't get concerned until she witnesses "herself" looking up at the screen asking for help. I can only guess the machine was trying to suck her mind in and trapping it within itself. Because you see her, the table, and the chair in the screen but the machine itself is not present. That is scary as ***k.

Looks kinda good I guess, but I sure hope the main character won't talk in the final game. Kinda takes me out of the experience when the main character talk in first person games.
