Headware Games has shared the early gameplay of Hollowbody, the studio’s upcoming techno-noir horror set in Britain.
A fresh take on Hollowbody was unveiled today (March 31) and follows the main character Mika after she crash-landed in an abandoned British city.
Since this is a horror game, soon her attempts to explore will fail — after Mika finds a hammer and a revolver, she will soon be attacked by anxious residents of the city.
The game will be familiar to fans of the early Silent Hill games, as the survival horror series helped inspire the upcoming Headware Games game.

“Today I am pleased to share a brief overview of the world of Hollowbody, demonstrating part of the gameplay focused on exploration and storytelling, as well as a brief overview of the fighting in the game,” said Nathan Hamley, founder of Headware Games.
“I push myself to create a truly unique atmospheric experience that leads players into the unknown with a mysterious story that begs to be solved.”
Last year, Hamley met with NME to discuss why he believes it is important to create a game that conveys the atmosphere of Silent Hill, and why he modeled the city of Hollowbody after his native Bristol.
“I find it terrifying that experimenting with familiar settings or themes will be most effective,” Hamley explained.
“There are many narrative reasons why I wanted to create this game in the setting of the near future, but in order to hit the target with elements of horror, I wanted to be able to justify it with something familiar,” he added, pointing to the Bristol setting of the game.
“You can call it a metaphor for post—Brexit Britain if you want,” he added. — It wouldn’t be far.
Hollowbody is expected to be released in early 2024 and will be available on PC.
