Carrion escapes containment on July 23rd

More On: Carrion

Devolver and Phobia Game Studio have announced that their reverse horror game Carrion is slithering onto PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on July 23rd. In Carrion you play as a Cronenbergian nightmare that escapes its holding pen in a secret lab and proceeds to wreak unspeakable destruction in its quest to survive. As the creature you can consume hapless soldiers and scientists and even possess people and machinery, getting stronger and tougher the more you eat. In a lot of ways this game reminds me of the unappreciated, late-cycle Sega Genesis classic The Ooze. I've had my eye on Carrion for a while now--I'm kind of morbidly fascinated by it--and I'm not sure if I'll pick it up on Switch or PC.
