Spanish indie developer Tessera Studios may have only revealed information regarding its first virtual reality (VR) title Intruders: Hide and Seek last month, yet the videogame is already looking to be one of the more interesting releases for PlayStation VR this year. Well, today you get to try it for yourself, and to mark the launch, the studio has released a new trailer.
The experience may already be super creepy as Tessera Studios describes it as a ‘VR psycho thriller’, the trailer then takes this to another level. Taking viewers on a tour of a house at night, a female narrator in the role of an estate agent is describing this lovely family home, talking about the rooms, marble worktops and the many other wonderful amenities, including the solitude. The fact that the family moving in won’t hear any neighbours and they definitely won’t hear them.
Intruders: Hide and Seek, as the name suggests, is all about a home invasion. On a night in the pouring rain three mysterious strangers break into a countryside vacation house and retain the Richter family as hostage. The parents restrained and younger sister hiding you are thirteen-year-old Ben, who is stuck in the house with the intruders. Only Ben can help save his parents and sister whilst at the same time figuring out who the three assailants are and what they want.
You’ll need to use the darkness to your advantage, avoiding the gaze of the intruders as they search the premises. Each step must be well planned as each of the intruders has a specific coneshaped field of vision which needs to be avoided. This isn’t just about stealth and keeping quiet, you’ll need to use the environment to hide when necessary. You’ll also need to be on the lookout for any useful times either laying around or in cupboards.
Intruders: Hide and Seek launches today for PlayStation VR, available digitally and in stores for £15.99 GBP/€19.99 USD. The title has won multiple awards like the Playstation Talent Award, SXSW Best Gaming Pitch Award and the F&S Premio Titanium award.
Tessera Studios has also confirmed that a Steam version with VR support will be released towards the end of 2019. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
