Developer VR Bros have finally released the reveal trailer for A Wake Inn. Alongside the trailer, the developer revealed that the game is set for an early 2021 release.
VR Bros have finally revealed the announcement trailer for their VR horror game A Wake Inn. Although the game was initially set to release this year, alongside the trailer the developer has set a revised early 2021 release date.
Announcing the launch of the trailer on Reddit, one of the developers (it was never revealed who) appealed for feedback using the game's official account:
Hello, I’m one of the ‘A Wake Inn’ devs. We just released a new story-based trailer for our wheelchair-bound VR horror game. And we have set an early 2021 release! We are very excited about it as this is our first project. Would love to hear your feedback.
A Wake Inn looks as fascinating as it does absolutely terrifying. A lot like HINGE: Episode 1, which has finally launched this week, the game is drenched in a beautiful art deco aesthetic which seems integral to the game's story and gameplay. Graphically, the trailer looks amazing.
But that's only part of the story. A Wake Inn also looks as if it is really trying to give players a unique experience. Whereas the 'art deco aesthetic while asking questions about what it means to be alive' may at first seem like an obvious Bioshock parallel, the developer made the absolutely fascinating decision to make you, the player, wheelchair bound. Not only is this a major win for VR representation, it's also a gameplay element not often deployed in video games.
The trailer doesn't give us a whole lot to go off, gameplay wise. But we already got quite a bit of info from the official gameplay trailer (& Dev Commentary) that came out earlier this summer. You can check that out below:
The world of A Wake Inn is full of interacting stuff for you to interact with ... sometimes they're just oldy-time classics, sometimes they hold some clues about the game world. Anything to keep you immersed as deep as possible.
A Wake Inn is an VR horror experience which implements elements of action, exploration and puzzles. It will release on PCVR early next year.
This is definitely one to keep your eye on. Don't tell anyone this: that Announcement Trailer jump scare actually made me jump out my chair.
