Synopsis: Set as a prequel to the critically acclaimed Vaporum, Vaporum: Lockdown is a grid-based dungeon crawler, located in a steampunk universe. Expanding on the previous chapter, players take the role of Ellie Teller in this action adventure as the young scientist works on her teleportation research in a massive secret project, called Arx Vaporum.

In a press release, we were told that the creators were inspired by classics such as Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder, or the new Legend of Grimrock series, and within this trailer, the playstyle does seem similar, but with the unique sci-fi twist. The more modern-day graphics add a refreshing facelift to the genre, and we here at HorrorBuzz are excited to play this in its full glory.
Vaporum: Lockdown will be available on the Nintendo Switch on March 22nd, 2021, for $21.99.
