Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call getting PlayStation4 release on March 28th
The adventure game Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call is getting a PlayStation4 release. The game will be available for purchase on March 28th.
Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call was originally released on the PC way back in 2013, and then on Xbox in 2016. The developer, Artifex Mundi, has finally been able to get the game ready for PlayStation and, if reviews of the PC game are anything to go by, PlayStation players are going to love it.
Then again, as just about everything the Polish development company creates provides fun gameplay and is gorgeous to look at, it won’t be any surprise.
This is what the developer has to say about the game:
When Sarah Black, the curator of the Caribbean Naval Museum, receives a package from a mysterious messenger, she is unwittingly drawn into an ancient conflict. Moments after she opens the package to reveal an artifact, assailants descend on the museum and rob her of it. She can hardly believe that this is the beginning of a new nightmare from the deep.
After blacking out in the museum, Sarah finds herself on the shores of Kingsmouth, a forgotten fishing town with an incredible secret. The would-be messenger reveals the sad truth: he and the rest of the town’s denizens are suffering from a curse that is gradually turning them into aquatic creatures. A curse that was cast by two powerful beings: the mayor, Murray, and the sea-devil: Davy Jones.
• Explore the dark alleys of the cursed town of Kingsmouth!
• 48 vibrant locations full of details and riddles!
• 28 varied minigames and 20 hidden object scenes
• Play Mahjong in a completely new, Nightmares from the Deep style!
• Unlock a bonus story about the redemption of the praetorians!
Other things you need to know, and is it worth buying?
If you haven’t played the first game in the series, you do not really need to. I’ve played both, but the second game stands perfectly on its own without needing to have any background story from the first to help you.
While the puzzles in the game are the type most hidden object game (HOG) players will already be familiar with, there are a few twists to them in Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call, which will tend to make the game interesting even for veteran HOG players.
The game also has three levels, so is suitable for any type of casual gamer. I played it on ‘Expert’ and didn’t find it particularly difficult.
And, if you want one of the best hidden object/adventure games released in the last few years and to finish a game feeling completely satisfied with the experience then, yes, this game is definitely it. In fact, it is almost a perfect game.
