First Screenshots: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
The Astronauts have posted the first set of screenshots for their upcoming PC horror game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
How beautiful does this game look? These screenshots look like they’re straight out of a Crysis press release (sans Predator Bow and alien races). The Astronauts blog stresses that these shots are from in-game footage, so no pre-rendered Tom Foolery, as far as we can tell.
From The Astronauts blog post:
After seven months of hard work, we’re ready to reveal what our game – a weird piece of horror fiction called The Vanishing of Ethan Carter – looks like. We’re releasing four in-game screenshots from the first few minutes of the game. We don’t plan to have any cut scenes in the game, so these screenshots all derive from actual gameplay.
In The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, you play as Paul Prospero, an occult detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter and realizes that the boy is in grave danger. When Paul arrives in Ethan’s home of Red Creek Valley, he realizes things are even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul comes to see might not be the only murder to investigate. Using both regular and supernatural detective skills, Paul must figure out what happened to the missing boy.
The Astronauts is a new indie developer based in Warsaw, Poland. The three founders,Andrew Poznanski, Adrian Chmielarz, and Michal Kosieradzki, were the co-founders of People Can Fly (Painkiller, Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgement), before embarking on their latest project.
