May 30, 2017 - Keeping quiet is key in Perception, a terrifying new adventure-horror released today by The Deep End Games and Feardemic; development of Perception was stacked with alums from the popular titles BioShock and Dead Space. We’ve had an overwhelming response regarding review codes for Perception, so please note that we may not be able to fulfill all incoming requests.

The Deep End Games and Feardemic are proud to announce the launch of Perception, the highly anticipated, narrative horror-adventure out now on Steam and GOG.com for a special launch price of $19.99 ($22.99 regular price). In Perception, players take on the role of Cassie, a blind woman able to sense the world around her via echolocation, who is plagued with dreams of a haunted New England estate. Armed with only a cell phone with spotty reception, Cassie heads to Echo Bluff, and it turns out the place is worse than her nightmares. A wraith-like inhabitant known as ‘The Presence’ hunts the young intruder, but Cassie remains determined to uncover the secrets held within the estate’s walls.

Cassie’s only hope at survival is to uncover the storied past of Echo Bluff, or she risks becoming one of its victims.
