If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s watching intense and disturbing videos just before going to bed. I have no business doing so, since my dreams are already as messed up and abstract enough as they area… I guess we can just call it a character flaw.
Such a situation occurred for my first viewing of the reveal trailer for Bloober Team’s upcoming horror title, The Medium, which is slated for a Holiday/Christmas 2020 release.
As the second Bloober Team title to make the list in our 31 Days of Halloween, it’s pretty hard to imagine that the game is going to let down fans of the horror genre, especially considering the talented team backing it up.
In addition to Bloober Team – a studio already well-versed within the realm of horror video games – The Medium will also feature Akira Yamaoka, of Silent Hill fame, who is working alongside Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski to create a “dual“ score to fit The Medium’s two different atmospheres – a world of the living, and a more dark and sinister spirit world. Prolific voice actor, Troy Baker, will lend his talents as the main antagonist of the game, while Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (who has previously worked with Yamaoka) will provide vocals for the game‘s soundtrack.
