Senscape, which includes author Agustín Cordes who designed horror game Scratches, have been teasing an “Unnamable Project” that takes place in Hanwell Mental Institute. The institute was designed according to blueprints of real life, vintage asylums.

The game is revealed to be titled Asylum and you can check out a series of concept art, including the full cast of characters, on their newly decorated website. To get a taste of the asylum itself, check out the new trailer embedded for your viewing pleasure below.



BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA — July 9, 2010. Senscape is finally ready to
lift the veil of secrecy surrounding the game until now referred to as
“Unnamable Project.” The name and nature of this long awaited horror
adventure are revealed along with a lengthy and moody trailer that
shows its frightening atmosphere as well as a large selection of
concept artwork, including the entire cast of characters in the game.
While details are still scarce, it has transpired that players will be
able to explore at leisure a vast and vivid asylum known as the
Hanwell Mental Institute, while diving into a disturbing horror
storyline unlike anything that has ever been seen before in the
adventure genre.

Authored by Agustín Cordes, designer of the popular and award-winning
Scratches, the project aims to provide a genuinely heart-stopping and
menacing experience. “We have created something very special here,”
said Agustín. “The decaying Hanwell institute seems to have a life of
its own and was designed from the ground up after real blueprints of
vintage asylums. It may be one of the largest virtual structures ever
created for a game.”

This announcement is the culmination of a unique and successful viral
promotion that involved a series of YouTube videos by an inmate on the
run called “Leonard Huntings” and the fake homepage of the Hanwell
Mental Institute. Many who have been requesting admissions to the
asylum can look forward to a very special surprise.
