Prey Dev Reveals Horror Game Lost Within

Human Head Studios teams up with Amazon for a new mobile game launching this summer; See the first trailer now.


The next game from Prey creator Human Head Studios has been revealed.

A horror game, Lost Within challenges players to survive in a haunted asylum as monsters and a "legendary killer" lurk in the shadows. Players will need to scavenge for items to build makeshift weapons, utilize stealth to sneak past enemies, and conserve resources to stay alive.

"There are many doors, but there is only one way out," the developer says. Check out the game's announcement trailer above.

Lost Within is a mobile game due out this summer for iPhone and iPad, as well as Amazon's Fire phone and Fire tablet. Human Head has teamed up with Amazon Game Studios--the online retailer's new video game label--to develop and release the game.

Human Head is best known for creating Prey, a 2006 shooter for Xbox 360 and PC. Fallout publisher Bethesda originally planned to ship a sequel, but the game never materialized.

"It was a game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be--we never saw a path to success if we finished it," Bethesda's Pete Hines said last year about Prey 2. "It wasn't up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it."

Amazon is getting serious about gaming. Last year, the company acquired Killer Instinct developer Double Helix and made some marquee talent hires, including Portal designer Kim Swift and Clint Hocking, who previously held high-level positions at Ubisoft, Valve, and LucasArts.
