Carrion's Free Demo Lets You Become a Monster

If you’ve been interested by trailers and previews of Carrion, now is your chance to try the game yourself. It’s said to be a “reverse horror game” where you’re the one who’s inflicting panic and horror upon others by taking the form of a grotesque, ever-growing creature that’s dedicated to taking revenge on those who imprisoned it. It’s an intriguing concept with violent style to match, and you can try it now for free ahead of the game’s release.

Developed by Phobia Game Studio and published by Devolver Digital, you’ll want to head to the game demo’s Steam page if you want to test it out. There you’ll be able to download the demo for free so you can start your blobby rampage as some sort of creature who was imprisoned by people. You’re free now though which means you’re able to wage war on the pixelated humans whether they’re standing in your way or not.

Carrion is a reverse horror game in which you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin,” a preview of the demo said. “Stalk and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout the facility. Grow and evolve as you tear down this prison and acquire more and more devastating abilities on the path to retribution.”
