It looks like they improved the amount of physics enable objects available in the environment as well from HPL2 and all around the graphics look much better. Still kind of worried about how the PS4 development might affect the PC version though, mostly in regards to controls. I don't really want to judge much from such a short trailer (and the main interaction with objects looks to be unchanged, though I'm not sure how well that would work with a controller in general) but when the spider enemy came out and the guy hid he moved to the side instead of leaning. I hope they didn't remove leaning, as it should work fine with a controller.

It does work well with a pad. Dishonored has leaning in the console versions, works just fine.

RE: SOMA Discussion Thread

So, coming out in 2015 on PC and PS4? Since it's not explicitly mentioned, would it be safe to assume they are porting it to Mac and Linux?

Well, you can play AMFP with an Xbox controller and it's perfectly fine to play on with keyboard+mouse, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Someone asked FG on twitter if a Linux version is planned. (Sorry I don't know how to link tweets correct)

RE: SOMA Discussion Thread

Anyone else notice from the video that the gameplay (walking, running) seems to be more smooth?

RE: SOMA Discussion Thread

Is the thingy on the left one of the spider monsters of the concept art? Or just a bunch of lights?
