Carrion official artwork and logo

There's quite a few games where you get to play as the bad guy, but Carrion takes that even further by giving you control of a Lovecraftian and ever-hungry mass of murder-tentacles. As you might imagine from that brief description alone, you'll be spending a lot of time crawling through vents and slithering alongside walls, devouring robots and scientists alike, running away screaming any time fire is thrown at you, as well as trying to figure out what in the world is even happening in the story.

You can get a pretty good idea of what this looks like in action, as well as what sort of atmosphere Carrion is going for, through two of the recent trailers. The first one is the animated one that sets up the premise, while the second one is all about the gameplay. Have a look:

As for whether Carrion is actually good or not, that's going to depend entirely on what you're expecting to get out of it. If you're looking for a short but entertaining romp then roaming around and eating everything with a pulse in Carrion should be a good bit of fun. On the other hand, if you're looking for a highly replayable or challenging experience, I'm afraid you won't find it here. Either way, if the concept looks even remotely interesting to you, I'd recommend at least giving it a bit of a closer look.

Speaking of which, you can learn more about Carrion, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at Steam. Enjoy!
