This week has seen yet another virtual reality (VR) videogame successfully pass a Steam Greenlight campaign. Story-driven first-person horror title Pertrubia from the team at Imaginary Game Studio will now be sold on Valve’s digital PC store come full release in the fourth quarter of 2015. The title is expected to launch with full support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD).
Perturbia casts players as a young photographer named Josh, who becomes trapped in an abandoned building and must search for a way out. Players will solve complex puzzles and endure twisted mind games as they hunt for an exit. The experience is said to be inspired by horror titles such as Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark, boasting a brutal level of difficulty and even sections inspired by retro videogames.
We’d like to thank one by one to everyone that supported Perturbia with a “YES”, because that vote is charged with the value of trust and that’s what we value and appreciate the most,” the developer wrote in a Greenlight update following the approval. “We sincerely thank all the 10.952 who took part and vote, those who gave us a “YES” and those who gave us a “NO”, just for being involved in making Steam a bigger and better community each day.”
Pertubria is yet to be given a more specific release date. VRFocus will continue to follow the title going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
