New screenshots for Deep Silver's upcoming survival horror title Cursed Mountain go to great lengths to show just how cursed this particular mountain may or may not be.
What the screens actually do is give us a look at Cursed Mountain's expansive scale and some of the unique enemies you'll come across on your journey to find your lost brother, who mysteriously disappeared atop the sacred Mount Chomolonzo in the Hiimalayas. The game combines man's struggle against nature with man's struggle against the supernatural in such a way as my 9th grade English teacher would have been very proud that I had noticed.
This isn't just your average survival horror game. It's survival horror...on a mountain. Now imagine the movie trailer guy saying that. Chills, right?
DEEP SILVER REVEALS NEW BONE-CHILLING CURSED MOUNTAIN SCREENSHOTS
HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. - Jan. 22, 2009 - Deep Silver today released new screenshots for Cursed Mountain, an upcoming survival horror game developed exclusively for Wii™. These new images highlight the scale of environment, eerie Himalayan setting and the terrifying enemies players will face, including a boss and angry spirits.
In Cursed Mountain, players take on the role of Eric Simmons, an expert mountaineer who climbs Chomolonzo, a sacred mountain in the Himalayas, to unravel the mystery surrounding the sudden disappearance of his brother. Reminding the players of how far they've come - and how far they've yet to go - the entire mountain can be seen at all times. As they climb, the mountain itself becomes an enemy - prone to the travails of altitude sickness and oxygen deprivation, players may not be able to tell the difference between real enemies and hallucinations.
Taking full advantage of Wii's motion-sensitive controls, as well as the rumble features and embedded speaker in the Wii Remote™, Cursed Mountain looks to create an immersive horror experience set against the backdrop of the haunting atmosphere of the Himalayas.
Cursed Mountain will be available exclusively for Wii in 2009, with an anticipated "M" ESRB rating.
