It’s been five long years since Visage was announced. Four long years of waiting after the Kickstarter was funded. Two long years since the original release date and early access chapter. One long year until a second early access chapter.
Now, we’re finally seeing Visage drop into our hands out of nowhere.
When Was Visage Released?
Visage was originally set to release in 2018, but some delays occurred. Fortunately, players were satisfied for a little with two chapters between 2018 and 2019 before it went dark again. In February of 2020, SadSquare made the announcement that the full release was imminent. They went dark again until last week when they said it’s coming on October 30th, 2020.
Now it’s release day for Visage, and we couldn’t be happier.
Why Were We So Excited For Visage?
In 2014, we had the playable teaser known as P.T., a game we found out to be the predecessor to a Silent Hills game. The game was downloaded over a million times, and we were over the moon. Unfortunately, as soon as it came into our lives, it disappeared.
After dealing with the loss of P.T., we were ready to heal with a game; many were claiming to be the spiritual successor to P.T.: Visage.
We saw videos; we played the alpha, we were eagerly awaiting Visage. Then all of a sudden, we forgot about it. Maybe it’s because us gamers have short attention spans. Regardless of the reason, we were given a gift this Halloween season: Visage on Steam.
What is Visage About?
Visage follows a protagonist by the name of Dwayne Anderson as he tries to solve the puzzle of what happened in the home he’s investigating. However, we must survive the restless spirits mistakenly targeting him for vengeance. The paranormal events are scripted. However, randomized events can keep players on their toes as they encounter hostile ghost after hostile ghost.
