Placebo Effect is a fast paced open world third person shooter where you pilot an advanced microscopic battleship through your own body to defeat a microorganism that’s mutating your body.
Placebo Effect is a little like the “classic” Dennis Quaid Innerspace movie, but instead of being shrunk down and injected into Martin Short’s body, you operate a remote controlled nano-battleship within your own. You are a military scientist who has been infected with a deadly microorganism that’s mutating your body at an alarming rate. To survive you’ll have to pilot your tiny inner-spaceship (dubbed the “Shotbot”) through your body and fight the infection from within.
Exploring the inner workings of a human body from the inside is going to be a little gross and dangerous, but you little Shotbot is quite nimble and there’s a nice selection of weapons, immunition and nutrient power-ups to aid your progress. They’ll come in handy too, as you have locked valves, biological dangers and powerful bosses to deal with.
It’s a fun (and slightly stomach churning) looking shooter that should take you to some interesting places as you explore your own body from the inside. Sign up for the Beta to start healing yourself!
