Developer Rubycone and publisher Meridian4 want to make you lose your mind

In Hektor, you’ll become trapped in a defunct covert research facility in which you were once a test subject. Armed with only a flashlight, lighter and increasingly frayed nerves, you must find a way out.

If this isn’t bad enough, you’ve been left with a psychosis brought on by years of torture. And even worse, your environment continuously shifts and changes in real time. An area you’ve just passed through can look completely different in a matter of moments.

Felix Nordanåker, CEO of Rubycone: “The reason good survival horror games are so scary, is because they make you feel like you’re there. We wanted Hektor to push this “immersion” further by making players not only feel like they’re there, but there as our main character-experiencing his psychosis first hand. This is why we developed JIGSAW, a system for generating levels in real time. The effect is disorienting and unsettling: both characteristic of a broken mind.” 

Andy Sher, CEO of Meridian4: “We are very excited to help Rubycone bring Hektor to Steam. Hektor is the type of horror game we feel the Steam community is looking for: one that provides legitimate scares and a unique gameplay experience. We’re looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks.”

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
