Based solely on art style alone, I’ve been interested in The Vanishing of Ethan Carter ever since its reveal. Beyond those early pieces of media, I haven’t really been following the game too much. That was a decision I purposely made.
The gameplay trailer that you see above, then, sort of surprised me. I expected a faster and scarier game than this, though what we see here is still interesting.
The video’s YouTube description offers a bit of insight regarding exactly what The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is all about.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a first-person story-driven mystery game focused on exploration and discovery. As occult-minded private detective Paul Prospero communicate with the dead to discover the fate of a missing boy and the mystery behind a dark ancient force lurking in Red Creek Valley.
The Astronauts, developers of this game, released more than just a trailer. We also have a firm Sept. 25, 2014 PC release date. They even dropped a fancy official website on us, so check that out.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looks like an interesting adventure. Will you pick it up?
