Upcoming interactive murder-mystery experience The Invisible Hours was set to be released on the 10th October, 2017. While players in North America will still be able to enjoy the title from that date, users in Europe will have to wait a little longer.
The development team at Tequila Works have announced that the European release date for The Invisible Hours has been put back to the 17th October, 2017. A reason for the delay has not been given.
The Invisible Hours is a narrative-based virtual reality (VR) experience that is due for release for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR. Inspired by classic murder mysteries from the likes of Agatha Christie, The Invisible Hours presents a story set in the 19th Century where a group of strangers find themselves at a mysterious manor house, all suspects in the death of famous scientist Nikola Tesla.
Instead of stepping into the shoes of one of the characters, the player instead takes on a more intangible, invisible overseer, able to observe goings-on and decide which conversations to eavesdrop on to attempt to unravel the mystery. The result is a non-linear type of storytelling where time becomes an important resource that must be spent carefully, lest a vital clue be missed.
VRFocus has previously covered biographies of the main characters involved such as Gustav, a former detective haunted by a past mistake, or Thomas Edison, Tesla’s real-life rival as well as a figure in this fictional mystery. You can also check out this hands-on preview.
