This week has seen the launch of a set of campaigns for a new virtual reality (VR) compatible horror title named The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead. Developer Desktop Daydreams Studios has launched both Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight campaigns for the upcoming title. The former hopes to raise £37,500 GBP to fund development, while the latter aims to secure enough positive votes to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital store come full release.
The Corridor: On Behalf of The Dead is described as an ‘atmospheric first-person sci-fi horror adventure’. Set in a world filled with crime following a disaster event, players are cast as a Custodian, an agent that enters the mind of suspected murderers to gather evidence of their crimes. The title boasts a non-linear story that will see players manage limited resources and interact with environments. Enemies will try and keep certain memories from players, which must be obtained without ‘direct confrontation’.
Those interested can pledge £10 to secure a copy of The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead, which is aiming to release in January 2016. This is a limited backer tier of 2000 places, after which the price increases to £15. Backer rewards continue all the way up to a £5,000 tier which offers the chance to spend the day with the developers of the title along with other bonuses.
Should everything go to plan then The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead will launch with full support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). The developer has also teased that it will be ‘keeping a close eye’ on the Project Morpheus VR HMD for the PlayStation 4, though is yet to confirm such a port will happen. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
