Observer may seem unassuming enough from the outside, but rest assured that this unique cyberpunk horror story packs one hell of a punch. You take the role of Daniel Lazarski who works as an Observer, a detective who has the ability to hack into people’s minds with the perplexing Dream Eater device. Within the minds of various characters, Daniel’s perspective of the world begins to skew and warp until even reality can’t be taken as a certainty.
Stripped down and barebones, Observer doesn’t try to overwhelm you with a flashy vision of the future, but a more terrifying one that pulses with cyberpunk ideology the entire time. If you’re interested in anything cyberpunk or psychologically terrifying, then Observer is the perfect Xbox One horror game to play with the lights turned off.
