You have appointment with doctor for experimental brainscan – and when headset comes off, you are elsewhere. What is going on? You can know in only way – by playing Soma.
Our protagonist without future and dead past is hurled into terrible mess, both outside and inside, as game questions reality of your experience. Are you hallucinating, in your own world, because of your damaged brain? Is this virtual reality, some kind of terrible prank? Or maybe what you experience is real, but disorted and misleading? Or, of course, you see exactly what it is supposed to be, as illogical as it seems to be.
Expect playing around with various relatives of Slenderman, performing a little bit of mad science, seeing yourself in mirror and, of course, commiting atrocities against humanity. It is also game with most pointless, senseless goal that I ever seen. I really, really liked that little detail.
After all, why not? It is not like we have anything else to do in this situation.
Mod for Soma, Ariadne’s Ocean, is short jaunt into world after. It is as wonderfully nihilistic as SOMA itself.
