This week saw the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible survival horror title Perturbia from Imaginary Game Studio. The title, which supports the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD) hopes to recreate the feeling of classic entries in the genre such as Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark with limited resources and challenging puzzles. Now a batch of screenshots for the title have arrived, hinting providing a nod to another classic videogame.
A total of 17 screenshots can be seen below. Most of them provide a look at the gloomy corridors and rooms that players can expect to explore as they search for a way out of an abandoned building that protagonist Jon has become trapped in. However two of the shots also show off the title running with the Oculus Rift, confirming that the developer is working with the device from the ground up instead of integrating support at a later date.
Interestingly, another three screenshits depict an entirley different type of gameplay that seems to take inspiration from the original Wolfenstein 3D. These shots, which could easily be mistaken for another title were it not for the Perturbia logo placed on them, depict a first-person shooter (FPS) that uses 2D sprites similar to the 1992 classic title. What could this mean for Perturbia? The title’s Greenlight page mentions Wolfenstein 3D-style puzzles, perhaps suggesting that players must complete these sections to progress.
Perturbia is set to release on PC in the final quarter of 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow the title going forward, reporting back with any more updates on its progress.
