Here They Lie: A Surreal Horror Experience

A trip through the desert, an edible herb garden, a liquid Kitty, a shattered door, a dead tortoise, a King’s Head, a nude scanning session. A Garage.

Chop Chop.

Sprays of blood.

Toby as Jack from The Shining – no wait, that was me… Toby was Shelly Duvall?!

Is this making any sense?

It’s all leading to something…


Are these scenes from the game we are working on, memories of experiences creating it, or something more terrifying altogether?

At least now I realize it wasn’t all a hallucination.

Tangentlemen has grown from a team of weirdos in a garage in Los Angeles into a collaboration with Sony’s External Development team at Santa Monica Studio, and after a frightening journey into the unknown, we are excited to finally pull back the curtain to unveil our first project – Here They Lie.

Here They Lie is a dark psychological horror experience that transports you to a terrifying, surreal world inhabited by strange and malevolent creatures. Unimaginable horrors lurk around every corner, just out of sight, haunting and infecting your mind.

Dare yourself to go deeper down the rabbit hole and confront the meaning of your existence.

With a focus on narrative, and the experience of dread, Here They Lie is not your typical survival horror game.

We can’t wait to take this trip with you and show you what lies hidden deep within this mind-altering journey. Here They Lie will launch Fall 2016 for PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4.
