A member of the ship’s crew, you awaken from cryosleep to find it’s not at all the way you remember. Your friends and coworkers are gone. In their place, transformed monstrosities that kill without mercy. The ship is completely adrift in space without a course or destination, so you will need to uncover the events that took place during your sleep to have any hope of surviving this waking nightmare.
Syndrome takes survival horror back to its roots: where weapons and ammunition are scarce, and in insufficient quantity to take out all the bloodthirsty, crazy creatures roaming around the ship. Enemies can be fast and deadly — far too much for your character to handle — and so sometimes the best answer isn’t with a weapon, but is to stay undetected, or if you have to: run.
A price point for Syndrome has yet to be divulged.

Looks like a rough-around-the-edges Dead Space — which is more than enough for me to get excited. I’m usually not a fan of survival horror, but when it takes place in space, I can’t resist. The only thing slightly putting me off at the moment, is the amateurish voice acting, which doesn’t sit well with what is otherwise a very quality looking game.
