Developer Atelier QDB will be launching its pixel art horror game Decarnation this May for Steam and Nintendo Switch, came a recent announcement from the team. The storyline focuses on Gloria, a dancer in the early 90s facing numerous obstacles in her life – until, that is, she is given a “too good to be true” kind of offer from a seemingly well-intentioned benefactor. Mixing survival horror elements with tense narrative beats, cryptic puzzles and disturbingly nightmarish sequences, Decarnation was undoubtedly one of the most memorable titles I tried during last October’s Steam Next Fest – back then, I had this to say about it:

“Decarnation, at first glance, may seem almost like an innocent little pixel art adventure game, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Inspired by movie classics like Perfect Blue and Mulholland Drive, the game takes you on dark and nightmarish journey in the role of Gloria, a dancer going through some struggles in both her personal and professional life. The demo gives only a brief – yet sufficiently disturbing – glance into the metaphorical horrors you’ll have to face, but it was more than enough to make me want to see how the rest of this hauntingly bizarre tale is going to unfold.”
