Perception Coming to PS4

Bill Gardner's Avatar Posted by Creative Director, The Deep End Games

Hey, PlayStation gamers! The Deep End is super excited to partner with Feardemic and bring our debut Perception to PS4. First, a bit of backstory about this atmospheric game. Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that tells the story of Cassie, a blind heroine who uses her extraordinary hearing and razor-sharp wits to unravel the mysteries of an abandoned estate that haunts her dreams.

After months of research, she discovers an abandoned mansion in Gloucester, MA. Once there, Cassie finds that Echo Bluff is worse than her nightmares. A ghostly Presence has tormented its inhabitants over generations, and it now hunts Cassie. She must solve the estate’s mysteries or become one of its victims.
Cassie finds her way by tapping her cane and can “see” via echolocation. She needs to avoid detection and uses ambient sounds of the house to help her navigate or uses objects to create distractions. Every sound creates a visual. But there is a cost…sound will attract your enemies and reveal your location.

But you’ll also need to match wits with the Presence, a mysterious force that haunts the mansion. When playing, you must carefully weigh the risk of making too much noise against the possibility of being discovered. Once spotted, your only hope is to run, hide, and pray that it doesn’t find you. Cassie can also use the ambient sounds of the house to her advantage, by throwing objects like alarm clocks to create “sound bombs” that can distract her enemies.

Then there is the mansion of Echo Bluff, which has grown to almost be a character unto itself as it shifts through the different time periods and messes with the player. We’re proud of Perception’s echolocation feature, which allows us to bring an innovative new perspective to a genre we hold near and dear to our hearts. And since The Deep End Games team was formed by industry veterans who have worked on the BioShock series, Dead Space and many more, you can bet that some serious scares will be in order.

We’re excited to be working with Feardemic, a new publishing label focused on bringing players unique psychological horror games, to bring this to PS4.

Is it possible to at least whap things with the cane for a brief stun?

I feel like we have been waiting to play Perception forever. Please tell us the wait will not be too much longer! I have looked forward to this game for quite some time now.

Wonderful censorship you guys at Sony have going on, and it illustrates volumes.

Hated Outlast.

This on the other hand, may be more worth the dreary and horrific setting of a nightmarish scene.
You know….. the kind you can grow stronger and wake from.

I thought Bioshock was a much better scene for the drama, and the Norman Rockwell paintings who went astray.

I look forward to it.
Though not as much, as when I get a weapon, to do away with the monsters and a perfect beginning/ending.

Looks great guys! Any chance this will have VR support? Something like this would be innovative and work wonderfully on the PSVR!

This game isn’t accessible to blind gamers. What a lost opportunity to make a difference guys. Would’ve been the perfect game too. Gotta love the irony…

I live rather close to Gloucester. Wonder if anyone from the dev team is there.

Will this have PS VR support? If there is no PS VR support then count me out. It does look cool though.

Oh no! I watched the trailer and thought this was a VR game. So disappointed to find out that isn’t the case. The whole idea of this game just screams VR! Please, please, please consider adding VR support for this game. It would be absolutely awesome and a definite “must buy”!
