Mysterious Allure Unveiled: Barlow's Half Mermaid Teases Projects C and D

In a world shrouded in enigma and suspense, Sam Barlow's studio, Half Mermaid, renowned for captivating gamers with mind-bending creations like Her Story, Telling Lies, and the critically acclaimed Immortality, is back to tantalize us with two new mysterious projects on Steam. Aptly named Project C and Project D, these enigmatic titles have arrived, bringing with them a sense of anticipation and curiosity.

As we delve into the newly unveiled Steam pages, we find ourselves confronted with a sea of redactions. Project C starts off with a biblical quote, "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." Intriguing, isn't it? But that's not all. It teases us further with the promise of "the new cinematic," something that claims to offer an experience "for the first time ever in a videogame." Oh, the suspense!

Meanwhile, Project D takes us down a different path, venturing into the realm of survival horror. The description hints at elements like "1983," "nurse," "nightmare," and the ever-helpful advice to "be careful." And just in case you were in doubt, it assures us that "something bad" awaits. Oh, the chills!

Project C seems to align with Barlow and Half Mermaid's signature style, as their previous projects have been acclaimed FMV mystery-thrillers. Remember Immortality, the studio's latest masterpiece? It revolves around a film star who mysteriously vanished after making three unreleased movies. So, we can expect Project C to immerse us in a cinematic experience that will leave us questioning reality and craving for more.

Project D, on the other hand, appears to be a departure from their usual repertoire. Tags like "thriller" and "story-rich" hint at a captivating narrative, but the game takes a leap into third-person survival horror territory, a new venture for Half Mermaid. Interestingly, SteamDB lists Project D as "Doors," which, although not the most enlightening title, aligns with the description that mentions "some doors." And to heighten the intrigue, one of the teaser images showcases a foreboding door, bathed in an ominous red glow.

Speaking of these tantalizing teaser images, they captivate our imagination but reveal little about the games themselves. They leave us yearning for more, painting evocative scenes that hint at untold horrors and mind-bending mysteries lurking just beyond our grasp.

As we eagerly await the release of Projects C and D, Sam Barlow and Half Mermaid have successfully piqued our interest, leaving us on the edge of our seats. The veil of secrecy surrounding these projects only fuels our excitement, and we can't help but wonder: What groundbreaking experiences and spine-chilling tales await us in the depths of these enigmatic creations? The stage is set, and the curtain is about to rise on a new era of gaming suspense. Brace yourselves, for Barlow's Half Mermaid is about to take us on an unforgettable journey into the unknown.
