Following the successful completion of their Kickstarter campaign, independent studio Ape Law have announced the release date for their virtual reality (VR) compatible title Albino Lullaby, a title built from the ground up for the medium that will be coming to Oculus Rift, with HTC Vive and Project Morpheus also touted.
Billed by the studio as a psychological horror-adventure that ‘doesn’t rely on jump scares or gore’. Ape Law’s founder Justin Pappas, a former level designer on Bioshock Infinite and Creative Director on Albino Lullaby explained this philosophy.
“Jump scares and gore are a great way to get an instant and powerful reaction out of your players, but the real lasting power of horror is in the manipulation of the imagination. The great masters of suspense like Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch show us that no nightmare is scarier than the one at play in your own mind.”
Taking place in a mysterious town full of dark secrets, hauntings and mysterious goings on, you must unravel the mystery (which takes place in real time) in order to reveal the truth behind the town and potentially even you. Albino Lullaby will have a global release on September 15th and will be available via PC digital download through Steam, Humble, IndieGameStand and directly from the Albino Lullaby website.
VRFocus will be following this project and will give you more information about it as soon as we get it.
