The Polish developer studio Game Island has presented a new survival game. Even now, some players are comparing it to a popular horror game. Introducing the title, here you can see the announcement trailer:
What kind of game is this? The new survival game from Game Island is “Serum” – a horror adventure that makes you addicted to a green liquid. This liquid also gives the title its name.
In serum, fluidity is critical. You have to inject them regularly into your character or he will die like our colleagues from GameStar.de learned from the developers.
What does the trailer show? The Serum trailer shows a spooky landscape (minute 00:02 to 00:14) in which the player is attacked by a dog-like monster (approx. minute 00:20). We also get a first glimpse of the serum being injected (minute 00:06).

What are the players saying about the trailer? The trailer for Serum also appeared on the YouTube channel of the gaming magazine IGN. There, numerous players expressed their first impressions of the trailer. Many compared it to the popular horror game Chernobylite, which has 83% positive ratings on Steam. But other games like Metro and Fallout were also mentioned.
- Mav Vynn: “The game seems to be very similar to ‘The Beast Within’ and ‘Chernobylite’.”
- zeeshan aftab: “Metro x Systemshock x Chernobylite = Serum”
- Joydragon Gaming: “Looks like a halfway decent expansion for Fallout 4.”

The fight for the green liquid
What distinguishes serum? Your task in Serum is not only to ensure your survival, but also to find out more about the mysterious liquid. You are subject to an eternal race against time, as you can run out of liquid. Then you have to find supplies.
New serum can be found in specific locations in the horror title’s hostile environment. But this world is just as deadly as missing an injection of the green liquid.
You have to fight against different creatures and arm yourself to survive. In addition to the usual melee and ranged weapons, there are also so-called “serum-controlled weapons” in serum.
But the serum is not only positive and can also change your character’s body, for example.
