The Farm’s tortuous Get Even hits spring 2017

A twisted tale

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about The Farm’s dark psychological horror action game Get Even.

The title, first mentioned in early 2014 and then delayed to 2016, is now slated for a spring 2017 release with Bandai Namco as publisher. The game is set for a release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Along with the new tentative release date comes a dark, gritty trailer and its rather short description:

With Cole Black's memory lost, his job is to find out why a teenage girl has a bomb strapped to her chest. GET EVEN’s twisted tale will have players questioning their perceptions of reality and the true meaning of justice as they unravel the mystery of how Cole ended up in the asylum and the fate of that teenage girl. GET EVEN will deliver an unparalleled sense of immersion through the use of Auro-3D acoustics technology from Auro Technologies.

According to the official website for the game, Get Even is "an ambitious techno-thriller avoiding narrative shallowness, which is often found on the shooters market, and offering a moving, serious story depicted from the perspective of two conflicted characters."

The Farm used 3D scanning technology for locations and characters in a "scale not yet seen in the video game industry."

And here’s a bit from the site on the game’s plot:

In Get Even the plot concept is innovative in its own right. The player will be able to choose from two campaigns, both of which will feature the same events, but from the perspective of two characters fighting against each other. Moreover, both campaigns will differ in terms of gameplay assumptions, and the story itself will be told primarily through gameplay elements, exploration and interaction with the surroundings, not through typical dialogues and film scenes. An essential element of the story told will be an expressive soundtrack and music, which will highlight the importance of featured events.
