Meet A New Teenage Homeowner In Survival Horror Stray Souls

After inheriting his grandmother's home, yound Daniel realises he's biten more than he can chew in survival horror Stray Souls.

It wasn’t easy for me to delve into the press for Stray Souls, what with it being a horror and all. However, making references to Silent Hill had me at ‘shit my pants’, and I had to have a look at it. Man, this looks really freaky…

From Jukai Studio and the ever-prolific Versus Evil, this ‘nightmarish’ psychological thriller serves up plenty of paranormal experiences for those with the guts to experience it. It’s made with Unreal 5, giving a super realistic aesthetic.

You play Daniel – a teenager who has inherited a home from his estranged grandmother(!). Naturally, he moves in, and before he can set up a keg party, he meets Martha (always Martha…), and she knows a few too many secrets about the dwellings, which Daniel can’t seem to outrun.

Key features include:

  • Explore the town of Aspen Falls and surrounding areas to uncover a malevolent plot set in motion at Daniel’s birth.
  • Immerse yourself in Daniel’s story. Choose responses at key moments through branching dialogue options, shaping Daniel’s tone and personality.
  • Fight hordes of nasty creatures or run for your life. Simplified combat without massive loadouts puts the focus on strategizing combat tactics and resource management.
  • Solve dozens of clever puzzles with out of the box solutions to test your wit.
  • Randomized systems ensure that enemy encounters, item locations, changing weather patterns, and strange phenomena aall occur at various places, making each playthrough unique.

Here’s the trailer for Stray Souls:
