Vault life, or living in a bunker seems to be a more common gameplay experience as of late, with the likes of Fallout, Metro 2033 and its sequel, and This War of Mine. A new title coming to consoles this year, The Bunker looks to add to this ‘genre’, but also scare the crap out of you too.
With a tagline of “The last remaining survivor of a nuclear bunker, you have watched everyone you know die. You are finally, truly alone. But the only place you’ve ever know is about to become your greatest enemy…,” you know you won’t be in for a good time.
“You are the last remaining survivor of a nuclear bunker, 30 years after the blast obliterated everything above ground. Over the years everyone else has died, and their corpses are locked away in the cold storage room.
Your daily routine is the only thing keeping you sane – just – but when an alarm is triggered, your mind begins to self-destruct. You must venture deeper and deeper into the bunker discovering long forgotten zones and uncovering dark and repressed memories that finally reveal the terrible secret of the bunker.”
The Bunker will be a fully ‘live action’ adventure, and players will be able to explore and find clues to their escape from the Bunker. They will have to move fast, making quick decisions which could cost them their life.
You will be able to fully roam around the live action world, looking around, opening doors, collecting items, unlocking secret areas. And everything you see is REAL. You may not be able to sleep soundly during your time playing this, I imagine.
You can learn more about The Bunker here, and look forward to it, if that’s what you want to call it, in September.
