The next game to be released by Poland’s Bloober Team, the studio behind Observer and Layers of Fear, is The Medium, a game that stands out for its curious cross-dimensional gameplay. With players able to simultaneously explore two unique worlds at once, Bloober developers have said that the improvements made in the new generation of consoles have been vital in bringing the horror game to life.
Bloober developers have previously spoken about how The Medium was planned for earlier generations, starting with the Xbox 360. That version of the game even went so far as getting an official website and an ominous teaser sent to members of the gaming press.
Now, in an interview for Game Informer’s Issue #332, lead game designer Wojciech Piejko and producer Jacek Zięba have explained why the newest generation of consoles were perfect for bringing The Medium’s ambitious vision to life.
