Chasing Static is a low poly horror coming in January to consoles

Chasing Static by Headware Games will be released on January 12th, publisher Ratalaika Games has confirmed. This is the console release with the confirmed platforms of PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Switch. Chasing Static has been available on PC since October 2021, where it has very positive reviews.

“After so many people played Chasing Static on PC, it’s my honor to invite console players on PlayStation, Nintendo, and Xbox to my Welsh nightmare,” said Nathan Hamley, Founder, Headware Games. “Having my game on the platforms that hosted the inspirational games of my youth still feels surreal.”

The story outline for Chasing Static says, “The dark woods of rural North Wales welcome back the prodigal son Chris Selwood, returning to attend the funeral of his late father. After a pit stop for a hot coffee and a break from the rain with the diner’s waitress, Aneira, his world turns upside down after an unknown terror pins her to the ceiling. Chris awakens later after the shock dispatches him momentarily, and finds himself in the same diner, now broken, rusty, and inexplicably worn with age. Left with many questions, Chris turns to his estranged father’s journal, filled to the brim with strange and seemingly unrelated notes. With a semblance of knowledge in hand, he must explore the blackened ruins now surrounding him for answers. Chris finds he’s not alone, however, as terrifying horrors and monsters now stalk his surroundings, waiting to tear him apart with violent glee.”

You can see in the trailer that the game is not shy of showing gore, albeit in low poly, and it looks to be a title that looks to surround the player in mystery, while the deadly and horrifying force hides in the shadows.
