Glowstick Games’ Dark Deception garnered a great deal of attention last year as it made waves amongst the virtual reality (VR) community. Following it’s announcement and an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign, the studio teased a PlayStation 4 release. That console edition has now been confirmed, and it will also support the forthcoming PlayStation 4 VR head-mounted display (HMD), Project Morpheus.
Dark Deception casts the player as a cop on the run. The gameplay is suggested to be ‘pretty simple’ by the developers: you must collect all soul shards before the monsters kill you. Collecting all the shards will reveal a puzzle piece, and grabbing that will complete the level. Dark Deception has openly been compared to the likes of Pac-Man by Glowstick Games, though obviously with a VR twist.
“Dark Deception is closing in on a final release date and we are working very hard to deliver a quality game,” stated Vince Livings, CEO of Glowstick Games. “The game visuals and gameplay mechanics are much improved from the pre-alpha build that was released online back in March.”
Dark Deception has already been confirmed for PC with Oculus Rift compatibility and now PlayStation 4 and Project Morpheus also. Furthermore, Glowstick Games are now developing Dark Deception on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3 and Wii U. The team plan on re-launching their Kickstarter campaign for Dark Deception soon and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details.
