Set in the trenches of WW1, Conscript is a horror game inspired by classics like Resident Evil and Silent Hill, where you have to survive as a French soldier while searching for your missing brother.

Conscript has everything you'd want from a 90's era horror: grainy graphics, a grim setting, tricky puzzles, limited supplies and plenty of challenging encounters.

Set in 1916 during the Great War, Conscript throws players into the shoes of a French soldier searching for their missing brother. Featuring a grainy pixelated art style, players will experience a return to the classic era of survival horror as they solve challenging environmental puzzles and take on encounters with limited supplies.

As they endure the dangers of war, they’ll need to navigate through twisting trenches, overrun forts and no-man's-land in order to bring back their loved one. War is unforgiving and Conscript’s oppressive atmosphere will keep players immersed in its intense story.

Offering familiar mechanics for those experienced in classic survival horrors like the original Resident Evil or Silent Hillplayers will need to fend off enemy soldiers with a variety of WW1 melee weapons and firearms, manage their inventory, uncover mysteries and plan their routes carefully. One wrong move could mean the difference between survival and failure.

Team17 and Australian developer Catchweight Studio announced that Conscript will launch on Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, as well as a later physical release on consoles. 

“With Conscript, I aimed to immerse players in the grim reality of World War 1 while delivering the tense, gripping gameplay that survival horror fans know and love. I can’t wait to bring this experience to both PC and console players later this year and am especially excited to see the game on the shelves.” shares Jordan Mochi, founder and solo developer at Catchweight Studio.
