Polish indie studio VR Bros is currently working on the promising A Wake Inn, a virtual reality (VR) horror where players are confined to a wheelchair. For those interested in more information – and why wouldn’t you – the studio recently released a new gameplay video with added commentary.
Having previously released a similar video five months ago, this time the VR Bros are showcasing more locations as well as mechanics. One room for example features two caged mannequins which you can activate, placing bets on them to win resources.
Another feature has to do with movement. If you’ve been following VRFocus’ coverage then you’ll know you have to operate the wheelchair just like in real life, physically spinning the wheels. Well, the video reveals that you can add power to the chair, moving it with a control stick. This has the dual advantage of freeing a hand when trying to move and defend yourself as well as adding comfort options.
There are 17 minutes of gameplay so you get to see a decent slice of A Wake Inn‘s puzzles and various mannequins inhabiting this creepy hotel.
A Wake Inn is set in the mysterious Silver Inn Hotel, a place owned by the unusual Doctor Finnegan who talks to you via a shortwave transmitter. Combining escape room elements with action-horror, the videogame gives you free rein to explore and figure a way out, whilst trying to uncover what’s actually going on – as you’re a mannequin too. The team states the videogame should take around 5-6 hours to complete.
