From the makers of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, The Chinese Room sure know how to mix psychological trauma with otherworldly and deadly sights. Still Wakes the Deep is the latest installment on their impressive list of psychological horrors.

With a release date of June 18, 2024, those eager to experience horrors similar to SOMA can visit Steam and wishlist the game right now. An exact launch time hasn’t been given for Still Wakes the Deep release, but PlayStation Store has it listed for 4am CT / 5am ET / 10am BST / 7pm AEST. Therefor, the countdown below reflects this schedule.

Taking a leaf out of H.P. Lovecraft’s book, you can expect atmosphere, jumpscares of monsters walking past the corridors of the oil rig, mind-blowing visuals, and sentimental moments from Still Wakes the Deep.

Still Wakes the Deep will likely use a mix of audio logs and notes to tell its story, much like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA, Firewatch, and What Remains of Edith Finch. Your missing crewmates likely won’t be seen, but heard instead, with their stories told through the protagonist’s memories.

Still Wakes the Deep will launch on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
