Carrion is an independent video game that is currently in development. Its creators state that the game will present the players with a unique "reverse horror experience". What that means is that although the project's roots are in the horror genre, the story will be told from the antagonist's point of view.

Yes, in Carrion you are the monster, if you can call it that. Anyone who saw movies like The Thing will recognize the vibe immediately: the horror that's haunting the dark hallways is a physical entity consisting of a bloody mass trying to consume everything in its way, grow and expand, becoming a terrifying leviathan of the confined spaces its bound to roam.

The visuals look instantly recognizable to anyone who's been following the industry for the past several years. Top-quality pixel art, side-view, atmospheric lighting effects and beautifully drawn surroundings. The style is not groundbreaking by any means, but definitely fits the premise.

Carrion is a game full of violence, blood and gore, so if you're not into that sort of thing, maybe you should take a pass. But if you are prepared to admire the abomination and appreciate the beauty of its horrifying existence as a scientist admires his sometimes naturally revolting subjects, you're in for a ride.
