Paranoid, a psychological horror game from Madmind Studios, has a new trailer

Madmind Studios, the team that brought us the somewhat questionable Agony, have a new game on the horizon and it’s called Paranoid. It’s a first-person survival horror set in the 1980’s that “combines an extensive, psychological story with dynamic and brutal combat.”

The trailer shows Patrick, the protagonist, struggling with voices in head that affect his behaviour and are leading him on a dark path. Please note that this trailer is NSFW for the few remaining souls who are not stuck in their own living rooms hunched over a laptop.


Here’s some more blurb:

The game tells the story of Patrick Calman, a 31-year-old man who has lost his entire family under mysterious circumstances. His parents died violently, and his sister went suddenly missing. Trauma associated with the loss of his loved ones destroyed Patrick’s psyche. His own apartment became his prison.

One day Patrick gets a call, and the voice on the phone seems to belong to his sister. Thirteen years after the disappearance, she announces her comeback. To learn the truth about everything, Patrick will have to leave his secluded life, exposing himself to horrible experiences that will put him on the verge of madness.

Key features:
  • A dynamic and brutal combat system
  • Raytracing and 4k support
  • A constant struggle between paranoia and reality
  • Terrifying opponents
  • Drug abusing gameplay mechanics
  • A deep plot combining psychological horror with action and survival
  • A disturbing atmosphere that combines psychosis and surrealism
  • Realistic visual setting
  • Three endings depending on the style of the player’s gameplay
  • Cinematic cutscenes

Patrick suffers from mental illness, a topic that must be delicately handled and I hope Madmind Studios are being sensitive. However, as Agony featured first person rape and babies being eaten, I am a little worried as to what Paranoid will turn out to be. As you can see from the trailer, there are already boobs-a-plenty in the game.

The game has no release date but is available to wishlist on Steam.
