DEVOLVER DIGITAL AND NO CODE ANNOUNCE SCI-FI THRILLER ‘OBSERVATION’
- A Riveting Story Told Through the Lens of Artificial Intelligence -

The Edges of Space - Independent developer No Code and sentient game label Devolver Digital have announced Observation - a new and captivating sci-fi thriller for PlayStation 4 and PC. The third project from award-winning Stories Untold developer No Code is set to launch Spring 2019 [observationgame.com].

Observation takes players on a suspenseful journey to the outer reaches of space to uncover what exactly happened to astronaut Dr. Emma Fisher and the crew of the space station Observation. The captivating narrative unfolds through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma in discovering what is happening to the station and the vanished crew.

Developed by veterans from studios Rockstar North, Rocksteady, Creative Assembly, CCP and IO Interactive, Observation has been crafted with precision to bring fans a groundbreaking narrative with stunning visual fidelity.

“Let’s get real, we’re five to ten years away from the machines taking over,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Observation is just going to give a taste of what it will be like to converge their minds with that of a CPU before it all happens suddenly for real.”

Observation is set to release on PlayStation 4 and PC next spring but ambitious young AIs can follow development at observationgame.com and @_NoCode on Twitter.

Really liked the premise and concept of the game. The trailer and the screenshots also look very good, the trailer even gave a bit worry for the character, which I can't remember almost any trailer ever doing that, specially a 1:30 one.

I haven't played Stories Untold yet, but it's on my list and if Observation's potential quality is anything to go by, I will definitely check it out soon. Observation actually made me wish it was already out, which is rare for me with this type of genre.

2nd quarter 2019 is a long ways off, but plenty of great games between now and then to occupy the time, so I'm just gonna put it on my Wishlist and forget about it till it's out. A tactic that works wonders when waiting for anything.

Trailer is a bit "run of the mill", but it looks very interesting none the less.

    MrWhite I've heard OLED crushes black levels too much, so much that mid tone details get lost. (15 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (1 Day ago)

    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (1 Day ago)
