soma 03-13-15-1

After lots of teasing and an alpha phase for SOMA, it seems like Frictional Games is finally rapping up development on the mysterious and extraordinarily creepy game.

The news comes via a post over on their Facebook page:

If all goes according to plan the beta for SOMA, our upcoming sci-fi horror game, will be done in 4 weeks. It feels both exciting and scary that the game is really nearly completed now. After several years of hard work, release is finally a clearly visible milestone.

Note that we already have all the testers we need, so no need to make requests wink emoticon Game is still incomplete so just hang in there a little longer, and you’ll get the polished and proper version to immerse yourself in!

So are you guys excited to finally get your hands on SOMA, at some point in the near future?

    I dunno.. It seems to be going more in Amnesia’s steps than Penumbra.

    I absolutely HATED how every single thing made your character yelp and gasp. Took me right out of the game.

    So, 4 weeks until it’s finished, so with any luck, we’re looking at a June release? Maybe?

    Expect the worst, hope for the best. But, since it’s Frictional Games, it wouldn’t bother me much if it gets delayed, since I trust them to fix bugs over releasing a broken game.
