Eerie Horror, It Sleeps Below The Haar, Gets a New Trailer

Indie developer Arboreta Games has dropped an announcement trailer for its brand new first-person horror title, It Sleeps Below The Haar.

Scheduled to launch on PC this autumn, It Sleeps Below The Haar comes from the same Scottish studio who brought us the acclaimed cosmic horror experience, The Black Iris, from last year.

Feel free to check out the new announcement trailer down below:

As you can see in the footage above, It Sleeps Below The Haar is a chilling explore’-’em-up which sees you traversing a mysterious Scottish island. Early in the clip, a strange warning sign flashes up, saying: “YOU ARE ENTERING A COSMIC STORM ZONE”, followed by: “IF SIREN SOUNDS: EVACUATE OR ENTER NEAREST BUNKER”.

Indeed, from what we can gather, It Sleeps Below The Haar continues the Lovecraftian otherworldly horror of the developer’s debut project, the aforementioned The Black Iris. In other words, a creepy atmosphere and some good ol’ cosmic horror is what might be awaiting you on your adventure on this peculiar island.
