January is a good month for adventure game fans as Merge Games announced the release of a first-person adventure inspired by 60s pulp sci-fi movies, Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space. I don’t know how you feel about this, but in my case it surely makes me tickle in all the right places. Ahem…

Players must assume the persona of John T. Longy, a night-watchman at a partially abandoned, secret research facility. It’s just another mundane night when an explosion knocks the player unconscious. Waking in the complex’s basement with a gaping hole in the ceiling, gamers must first escape wreckage of the damaged building before exploring the complex and uncovering what’s going on. What are the strange, unearthly organisms that seem to have invaded the base? Is this some sort of biological experiment gone wrong? Players will have to You’ll fight for their lives as they unravel the mysteries of Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space.

For those who want a bit more from their adventure games, they’ll get some: the developers promise first person shooter bits that will entertain us every now and then, as well as mind bending puzzles and other surprises that will make saving the world and exploring space a much cooler experience. As if space exploration and saving the world weren’t enough…

Check out the game’s trailer below:

Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space is set for release on Xbox on January 20th and on PS4 (Europe) on January 19th with the PS4 (US) version following on February 2nd.
