Ebb Software’s Scorn is a dark and grotesque horror-adventure game set within a bio-mechanical labyrinth.

Giger’s work on the Alien franchise.

According to the developers, as well as taking direct inspiration from H.R. Giger, it also draws upon the works of surrealist artist Zdzisław Beksiński. The result is something that is designed to put you in a constant state of discomfort, but still leaves you eager to delve deeper into its world.
