Funcom looks to scare you with The Park

Now usually when you think of an amusement park, you think of rides, shows, candy, and all around fun times. Well, the guys at Funcom want to alter that perception with their upcoming game, The Park.

Funcom takes a step away from the usual MMOs that they produce to bring a short horror game about a mother that loses her son. In the press release Funcom states “When night falls and the lights go out, what follows is a short, but intense horror story set against the backdrop of an amusement park where a dark and sinister secret is just waiting to be uncovered.”

With this new game the Funcom group looks to try something different, drawing from all their experience in the MMO genre, but on a smaller scale. I’m always excited to see developers try new things with their games, and there are always new ways to scare people. With Funcom stating that The Park will be short, it makes me wonder if players will be begging for more? Or will be glad that the nightmare is over.

The park is set for an October release.
