First-Person Psychological Horror Game Madison Spooks Its Way To Consoles Later This Year


Another day, another intriguing horror game to unearth from the spooky graveyard of the interactive medium. Yes, developer bloody games announced its partnership with publisher Perp Games to bring its first-person psychological horror title Madison to “current and next-gen consoles” later this year.

While a PC release was slated for January 7, legal issues over the name of the game’s developer threw a wrench in the works, culminating in the studio changing its name from Nosebleed Games to Bloodious Games and the game was delayed, despite the fact that the development of the game on PC is already finished.

At the time of writing, it’s still unclear when the PC version of Madison will be released. Nevertheless, the good news for today is that we will definitely see a console version of Madison at some point in the near future.

As for what to expect when the title launches, well, Madison is billed as a first-person exploratory experience where you’re armed with nothing but an instant camera to help you on your gruesome journey. Not only will you have to deal with a variety of environmental puzzles, but you will also have to face a terrifying demon that compels you to commit horrific acts of violence.

For more on Madison, here’s the gist thanks to a press release we received recently:

MADiSON is a first-person psychological horror game that offers a truly gory experience and developer BLOODIOUS GAMES has rebuffed numerous attempts to delay or even ban this terrifying new addition to the genre. With all of this behind them, BLOODIOUS GAMES are now fully focused on the future and the exciting relationship with Perp Games.

“Many years ago when I started playing games, I completely fell in love with horror. From constantly dying in Resident Evil or being scared of dying playing the Clock Tower franchise at more modern psychological and survival horror games, I’ve felt, experienced, loved and absorbed them all. Says Alexis Di Stefano, CEO of BLOODIOUS. “MADiSON is our passion and we have poured our heart and soul into developing of a game that will truly scare you and challenge your outlook. Our journey has been incredible, driven by the passion of our incredible fan base, and now, through our partnership with Perp Games, we are very excited to announce that we are bringing MADiSON to consoles and can release our game to so many fellow Psychology and Survival Horror fans.

“It’s not often you see a team with so much passion and skill. Their knowledge and experience of the horror genre has been brought together to develop MADiSON, a truly groundbreaking game that takes psychological horror to a new level. MADiSON is extremely creepy, and we can’t wait for people to experience Luca’s tragic story in the months to come,” said Rob Edwards, CEO of Perp Games.
