  Studly Ego-guys-about-town like you and I are no strangers to all things goretastic. Whether we’re talking movies, games or TV shows, there’s a whole lot of good ol’ fashioned violence in the media. We’re getting desensitised to it all, to the point where we can watch the Saw guy disembowelling a victim and playing their ribcage like a blood-leaking xylophone over dinner.  

“So, Jimmy-Joe Jr, how was school today? … … Jimmy?”

“Just a minute, dad, the police are just about to find the Zodiac killer’s eyelid collection.”

More than that, we seem to crave it. Ravenous Mortal Kombat fans love themselves some fatalities, and the developers are racking their brains to come up with ever-more-ghastly-ass executions to please them. That’s just where we are as a society right now.

With all of that in mind, Possibly The Goriest Game Ever is a damn bold boast to make. To really shock us, you’ll have to be something pretty freaking special. Agony seems to talk the talk, but can it walk the walk? Let’s take a quick early ogle.

What we’re dealing with here is a survival horror with puzzler elements. As Destructoid reports, it casts your ass into Satan’s neighborhood, where you progress by possessing different demons with various powers. Powered by Unreal 4, Agony looks amazing, if amazingly horrifying ('The visuals and presentation are simply fascinating. Everything is made up of viscera and nightmares -- the likes of human guts and teeth as the building blocks for walls and doorframes,’ as the ‘toid puts it), and it’s sure one to keep an eye on.

Check out the latest trailer, and be creeped out in all the right ways.
