Phantaruk is a sci-fi survival horror game

Phantaruk is an upcoming sci-fi survival horror that takes place in one of the most terrifying locations known to the genre - a derelict star ship. There is no room to hide, the utilitarian design leaves little room for cheerful scenery, you can't leave unless you've suddenly developed space-gills, and worst of all, there is no limit to the amount of monstrosities that might populate the darkest reaches of space.

Since simply talking about horror games is rarely an effective way of letting you know what its all about, here's the recent trailer to properly set the scene:


Since Phantaruk is still going through some last-minute development there is very little information available on the actual gameplay, but here's the story premise: 

"You board the spaceship Purity-02 – prime complex of the H+ Corporation. 

The dream shatters to a nightmare when you realize what has become of Purity-02. Once a research vessel, it has turned into a deadly, deserted trap. To flee Purity-02 you have to investigate the mysteries of the ship. With every passing minute the chances of survival grow slim. Infected with a parasite emitting deadly toxins, you struggle against havoc being wrought within your body. But there is yet a greater danger to evade. 

A beast is roaming the ship. A creature known from long-forgotten fables and ancient myths. It could prowl around in any shadow and lurk behind any corner. You must plan your every move. You must survive the infection. 

You Must Get Off the Ship."

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you can find Phantaruk on Steam. As for the release date, its set for August 16th at a $12/€12 price tag.
