Earlier this morning, indie developer and publisher Softstar Entertainment announced that it will be bringing its first-person horror adventure, The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation, to western shores for PC.
Interestingly, the game is based on a Taiwanese horror-thriller film from 2020 called The Bridge Game in which a handful of university students play risky initiation games that involve walking across a haunted bridge at night. What could possibly go wrong with walking across a haunted bridge at night? Lots of things, apparently.
Accompanying the announcement was the release of a new trailer showcasing the atmospheric haunt-’em-up in action. Go ahead and check out said footage down below:
Combining stealthy cat-and-mouse gameplay with a taut atmosphere, The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation places you in the shoes of one of six university students as you try to escape the supernatural presence of an otherworldly entity.
Much akin to cult horror title White Day: A Labyrinth Named School, the Taiwanese studio’s latest horror game focuses on first-person exploration, light puzzle solving and tense hide and seek-esque gameplay, while telling a creepy backstory about the history of the school grounds.
Unfortunately, there’s currently no word yet on an official release date, but the game’s penciled in for a 2022 western PC release.
