Indie horror adventure Hidden to appear later this year
Senscape's Asylum isn't the only horror game coming out of Argentina this year, as two-man indie developer Lost Spell has just announced its own upcoming dark thriller, Hidden.
Hidden tells the story of an archeological expedition setting out into the Patagonian forests in 1934 in search of a "forbidden city" that some aboriginal records date back to before the dawn of mankind. As Thomas Farrell, from the University of Buenos Aires, you are part of this research team, but your expedition party soon encounters trouble in these "dark and unexplored ancient woods" as a "horrifying secret" previously hidden from the world is uncovered.
As seen in the game's atmospheric trailer, Hidden is a first-person, panoramic point-and-click adventure that promises plenty of player interaction, story-oriented puzzles, and a mature story "supported with documents, books, audio records and visual elements that enhance the adventure."
Already the game is quite far along in development, and Lost Spell hopes to release Hidden sometime in the second half of 2013. In the meantime, you can vote for the game on Steam Greenlight if you'd like to download it there at launch.
