Claire hopes its spooky enough to get gamers to back it on for publication on Valve's service.
According to the official press release, "Claire is lost and terrified as she and her dog find themselves in a warped reality that is a nightmarish reflection of their own. Alone and hunted from an unknown force lurking in the darkness, Claire's only hope comes from helping the forlorn people she comes across. But as Claire searches for a way out, she begins to unravel a connection between herself, the people she is trying to redeem and the force stalking her from the shadows."
The game seems to use a flashlight mechanic that will probably serve the same way as Alan Wake's - to keep the formless evil spirits away from her and her German Shepard.
