Carrion might be one of the most gruesome games in development right now.
The self-described “reverse horror game” puts you in control of an amorphous alien blob apparently bent on destruction, and as you can see in a recent gameplay video, it is grotesquely mesmerizing.
Watch the bloody teaser trailer for Carrion below:
In the pre-alpha gameplay video, the player-controlled red alien blob can be seen using its long tendrils to crawl through a grungy lab and tear its human inhabitants apart. It’s even seen destroying a weaponized security drone of some kind.
A skill upgrade screen shows off early level abilities like grabbing and throwing, dashing, which allows you to crash through vents and wooden barriers, and split, which lets you split up into two separate organisms. The split ability can be seen about 3 minutes in, when the player uses it to operate two switches at once in order to open a door.
Carrion has no release date yet. You can follow development on its official website.
