To say the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 has had a great showing of PlayStation VR games would an understatement. We saw loads of fantastic virtual reality (VR) titles, including two more from Until Dawn developers Supermassive Games, who brought this fascinating trailer for The Inpatient.
The Inpatient is a PlayStation VR exclusive, set 60 years before the events of Until Dawn inside The Sanatorium before it falls into disrepair. The player will have to interact with patients and staff inside the Sanatorium to discover their motivations and character story arcs, slowly uncovering the mysteries of your amnesiac protagonist, and the Sanatorium’s owner.
The Inpatient’s director, Nick Bowen, has shared his excitement for the title; “With The Inpatient, we used psychological horror themes to infiltrate the player’s subconscious and draw them further into the story. Our team spent a lot of time working to create a sense of isolation and fear, making extensive use of immersive 3D binaural audio to complement the amazing visuals and further transport them into their unfamiliar new home.”
The psychological horror VR experience was written with Until Dawn’s scriptwriters, Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick to keep the videogame’s story and lore accurate.
