Quadrant is a first-person survival indie horror game, taking place in 1979, inside a classified NASA research center. Gameplay will be overall based on the concept of a story driven game with the twist of a multi-linear experience. You, as a player, must rely on your own wit, you control your own fate.
First person horror games where you explore atmospheric locations and flee for your life seem to be pretty common today. Amnesia, Outlast, even the upcoming Alien Isolation fall into that niche. Quadrant promises to change up the formula with its semi-realistic 1970s setting and gameplay that breaks away from the run-for-your-life, defenseless mold. Set in a desolate NASA research facility, you'll explore this rooms and corridors where something gruesome and terrible has occurred...and may still lurk. You won't be defenseless though; you'll have to adapt and improvise, using obstacles around you as on-the-fly weapons, breaking down doors and through windows to escape. Puzzles and gradually learning the history and secrets of the center will also mix of the gameplay, and the player may even be able to alter the course of the story.
Quadrant is planned to release in the summer of 2014. You can learn more about the game on the developer's site.
