Eerie Story Trailer Revealed for No Code's Observation

Uncover the truth of a mysterious event in this soon-to-be-released science-fiction thriller.

Earlier this evening, a brand-new story trailer was revealed for Observation, which is an upcoming science-fiction thriller being developed by No Code and published by Devolver Digital. Catch a glimpse into the world of Observation in the video above and see what you’re in store for this spring.

In Observation, you assume control of the space station’s artificial intelligence, known as S.A.M., where players will utilize the ship’s control systems, such as the camera systems and various tools, to help in assisting crew member Dr. Emma Fisher as she attempts to unravel a mysterious catastrophic event that occurred on board. However, something is amiss as more pieces to the puzzle are connected, which seems to point to a crew that has vanished, along with a malfunctioning artificial intelligence.

The game certainly seems inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film having a similar premise with a faulty artificial intelligence attempting to complete its mission at the expense of the human crew aboard the ship. Some might find the graphics to be like 2014’s Alien Isolation, and while this is certainly not that game, we couldn’t help but feel familiar vibes while watching this story trailer.

While you’re at it, you might want to catch up on last year’s reveal trailer for the title as well, which you can have a look at below.

Observation is expected to release as a digital download on May 21st, 2019 for PC and PlayStation 4.
