Somnium is a dark Sci-Fi horror adventure where a lone prisoner who’s forced to carry out routine tasks on an isolated space station descends into madness.
In Somnium you are a prisoner who is stationed on a very small and remote space station, where you’re woken from cryogenic suspension intermittently to carry out certain tasks. There appears to be nobody else on the station, but you are given your tasks by the station’s AI and there are also voice logs that someone has left for you to listen to. Initially, the station seems to be operating normally, but as time goes on, things start to get weird…
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, Somnium is a great little slice of psychological Sci-Fi horror with an unsettling atmosphere and a cleverly crafted story. It feels a little reminiscent of Solaris and Event Horizon, with themes of madness and isolation within the enormity of space. Highly recommended.
