The Park is the latest game from Norwegian developer Funcom, who you may be familiar with from MMOs like Age of Conan or The Secret World. But The Park — which the developer describes as "a unique horror story" — is also being marketed as the "first single-player experience since its award-winning adventure Dreamfall: The Longest Journey."
The Park is being released for PC this October, and the game's description evokes something smaller and more experimental than the massive MMOs the developer has busied itself with. "The Park puts you in the shoes of a mother whose son goes missing," the press release reads. "When night falls and the lights go out, what follows is a short, but intense horror story set against the backdrop of an amusement park where a dark and sinister secret is just waiting to be uncovered."
"The Park is actually the outcome of what started with a small group of developers experimenting with new concepts and looking at how we could draw upon the universes we have built for our massively multiplayer online games and expand upon them into smaller-scale single-player games," Funcom CEO Rui Casais says in the press release. We'll find out more closer to the game's October release.
