Retro-Inspired Paranormal Adventure “Abiotic Factor” Coming in 2023

New Zealand-based developer Deep Field Games recently announced that their upcoming co-op survival game Abiotic Factor is coming in 2023. 

Abiotic Factor drops players into a science fiction open-world where players must construct gears and gadgets to escape the increasing chaos threatening them. 

The game is described as “heavily atmospheric” with an injection of paranormal terror and late 90s-inspired gameplay that is “driven by smarts, not strength.”

Here’s a quick rundown of Abiotic Factor from Deep Field Games:

As survivors of ‘a trans-dimensional experiment gone sideways’, the new open-world game drops players into the role of super-smart scientists in a doomed underground facility, forced to pit their ingenuity against an array of other-worldly entities to escape.

Abiotic Factor is the second offering from the co-op-focused studio, which rose to indie fame via Unfortunate Spacemen, a groundbreaking mashup of FPS and social deception, helping inspire a new genre of games like Among Us

Their new title stays in the sci-fi zone, while shifting gears from asymmetric to co-op gameplay, and adding a dose of the paranormal.

Abiotic Factor is scheduled to release for Steam PC sometime in 2023.
