Updated: Feb 15, 2021

The Black Iris is a third-person indie adventure and cosmic horror game produced by ARBORETA GAMES and published on the "" platform on the 6th of February of that year and updated on the 10th. In The Black Iris, you control an engineer who was sent to an abandoned research complex in northeastern Scotland. Your mission is to disable equipment and obtain research materials related to an unknown cult.

The game features a horror style that is different from other indie games in the genre. Here he appeals to the so-called "cosmic horror", which includes influences from the works of H.P. Lovecraft, more precisely from the work "Color Out of Space", since the color and the lights present in both the game and the work are as equal. In addition, the horror is also due to the different cameras that the game features, you can even get confused, because in an event, you will have to control the character from 4 different angles, and at the same time. The look bears a slight resemblance to some games from Sony's 32-bit console, the PSX.
