SOMA Gets A New “Safe Mode” Added To The PS4 Version

SOMA is probably one of the best indie games we’ve played in the past decade and a fine achievement in storytelling from Frictional Games in an era where everyone kinda sees what’s coming in video games. And while we love the way that the game plays out with you doing a bit of puzzle solving […]


SOMA Has Sold 500,000 Units Pulling The Game Into Profit

While a lot of people will attribute Frictional Games with Amnesia: The Dark Decent, I believe SOMA is a better game. The experience is really worth exploring, and parts of it still stick with me to this day. That is why I’m happy to hear the the game is now in the green. In a […]

SOMA Trailer Hints At The Horrors That Hide Beneath The Depths

I can’t wait for SOMA. I’m a big fan of the deep ocean as a horror setting, and knowing that the team behind Amnesia: The Dark Decent are running with the idea is comforting (in horrific and scary ways of course). One of the big things that will no doubt bring the screams though is […]

SOMA Gets A Trailer The Hints At The Story Ever So Slightly

SOMA, the new game from Amnesia: The Dark Decent maestros Frictional Games, has really snuck up on me. There hasn’t been a ton of fanfare surrounding the title, but that may be by design.

SOMA is set to […]
