Conarium Drops for Consoles Next Month
Conarium, the lovecraftian horror game by Zoetrope Interactive and Iceberg Interactive, dropped just over a year and a half ago for PC. Now, after a few hiccups along the way, it seems console players will be able to get in on the scary action next month.
Though the console port was originally announced in 2017 and slated for release sometime last year, the indie studio has noted just how challenging it has been to port the game over. And while no specific release date has been announced, the company says Conarium will be out in February. Additionally and despite the delay, it seems Conarium has not only received the console port treatment, but also the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro enhancement one as well! Complete with a boosted frame rate up to 60 fps if players so choose, performance and visuals have both received a buff.
And if you have yet to hear too much about Conarium, here’s the complete synopsis straight from its official page on Steam: “Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game that follows the gripping story of four scientists and their endeavour to challenge what we normally consider to be the “absolute” limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella At the Mountains of Madness, but largely set after the original story. You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole… Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister…Explore the Antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues and unlock secrets, whilst avoiding macabre beings at all cost.”
