The Medium (2020) - Videogame Trailer
Updated: Sep 13
The Medium is an upcoming psychological horror video game developed by Bloober Team who came up with the idea in 2012. Bloober meant to enhance the immersion by changing their traditional perspective from first- to third-person and taking advantage of Xbox Series X's background streaming. They modelled the spirit world after Zdzisław Beksiński's dystopian surrealist artwork. Lead designer Wojciech Piejko said The Medium imparts the message that "there is no universal truth". Composers Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka were tasked with scoring the physical and spiritual plane, respectively. Yamaoka worked on the Silent Hill franchise, which inspired the game, including its fixed camera angles. He was persuaded to take on the music when Piejko approached him with a game play demonstration.
The Medium was originally announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U in 2012, but for want of better technology, reappeared in May 2020 as a Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X title, scheduled to be released in December 2020. Definitely looks different. Check it out.
