The developer behind HTC Vive/Oculus Rift title Time Machine VR, Minority Media has announced the release of a new title for the Google Daydream called The Other Room.
The Other Room is a room escape videogame in which the player attempts to escape from a series of insidious traps set up by a twisted genius. The story mode the player is required to solve puzzles to uncover the secrets behind the antagonist’s identity and ultimate plan.
The levels of the game are on a timer, so the player must solve the procedurally generated puzzles before time runs out. The developer has also promised that the antagonist will contact the player and ‘Evaluate you psychologically’. What exactly this entails is not yet known, but could be an interesting 4th-wall breaking character akin to Psycho Mantis from the Metal Gear Solid games.
The developer has also put much work into the sound design of the game, experimenting with ambisonic and binaural audio to create the most immersive experience possible.
Minority Media have previously worked on the popular Papo & Yo, and Time Machine VR, a VR experience which takes the player on a trip through Earth’s prehistory to come face-to-face with dinosaurs.
The Other Room is available now on the Google Play Store for Google Daydream at a price of £4.79 (GBP).
