The Upcoming Horror Game Resident Evil Fans Will Want To Keep An Eye On

2020 saw the release of the Resident Evil 3 remake. It received decent reviews, but didn't exactly reach the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake for many critics. With Resident Evil Village a little bit further away from release, fans may be looking for something to satisfy their appetite for old school survival horror. Luckily for them, Madmind Studio has just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming horror game, Paranoid, which might just scratch that itch.

Right from the get-go, the new trailer shows that the name of the game couldn't be more accurate. Viewers follow a solitary figure as he hears a voice telling him not to trust anyone. Things get progressively spookier from there, with multiple dreamlike sequences and moments when the scenery shifts and scary figures appear in the corners of the screen. Players also get a hint of the kind of first-person encounters they'll have with the otherworldly creatures in this game. As a whole, the trailer is exceptionally eerie and atmospheric, showing off a bit of the horrifying world that Madmind Studio is cooking up.

Fans of horror franchises like Resident Evil and Silent Hill will find a lot to be excited about in this trailer. The atmospheric, psychological horror brings to mind the early entries in both franchises, while an ominous shot of a hallway may also remind players of Kojima Productions' ill-fated P.T., which featured endless looping hallways and a terrifying ghost that is always following the player.

Not much is known about the exact plot of Paranoid, save for a brief description attached to the game's Steam page. It reads, "Paranoid is a horror that tells the story of Patrick who has been living in isolation from the outside world for many years. One day he receives a phone call from his sister, who announces her visit more than a dozen years after she disappeared." Meanwhile, the description under the new trailer reveals that Patrick "lost his entire family under mysterious circumstances."

If Madmind Studio sounds familiar, its because that's the developer that created the controversial horror game Agony. While that title is generally considered to be one of the worst games of the previous decade, the moody trailer for Paranoid seems to suggest that there are still plenty of reasons to be excited for this new game. In fact, at least a few fans who felt burned by Agony's final product have expressed feeling "optimistic" towards Paranoid.
