The Black Iris is a tense and atmospheric PS1 styled cosmic horror adventure where you unravel a dark mystery at an abandoned secret research facility in Scotland.
Taking place in a North East Scotland in 1983, The Black Iris is a very intense cosmic horror adventure which follows a worker as they are sent in to decommission a mysterious abandoned research facility. Your job is to gather all the research material left by the scientists who worked there and decommission three pieces of equipment. As you explore the facility you’ll learn more about what happened there, the fates of the researchers and what unfathomable horrors lie beneath its surface.
A lot of games throw around the phrase “cosmic horror” nowadays, but few manage to deliver it as well as The Black Iris does. As soon as you step into the facility the atmosphere is electric and there’s a real feeling of awe as you unravel the enormity of what’s going on there. The retro styled visuals and vibrant purple-hued color palate are superb and the audio design is incredible. It’s a mind-blowing experience. Highly recommended.
