Devolver Digital Carrion release date July 23 Phobia Game Studio Nintendo Switch

Revealed at today’s Devolver Direct, Carrion from developer Phobia Game Studio and publisher Devolver Digital will launch on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on July 23. It’s a “reverse horror” game where you play as the monster that has gotten loose. You’re kind of a blob monster that can eat the people in the facility who tried to contain you. In turn, you will grow and evolve, developing more dangerous abilities and ensuring you are a horror of horrors.

Our sister site PC Invasion previewed this title a full year ago, so you can head over there if you want some in-depth impressions. Additionally, Steam offers a free “Carrion Sneak Peek” for the game if you want to try it out yourself.

Phobia Game Studio seems to have touched down on a pretty clever twist on familiar tropes, so hopefully Carrion turns out as fun to play as its premise would suggest. A maniacal publisher like Devolver Digital is precisely the type of dudes and dudettes to publish a game like this too. We’ll keep you abreast of any more major Nintendo Switch news to come out of the (extremely bizarre, debatable whether in a good way) Devolver Direct today.
