After spending 10 years studying horror and mystery game design, developer Robot Invader announced today that Dead Secret is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in January 2016, complete with cross-buy on PlayStation. Then, later in 2016, it will release on PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift.
Designer for console and VR, Dead Secret is a mystery thriller where you play as a journalist on a mission to make headlines as you explore the murder of Harris Bullard, a reclusive man with a mysterious past. You’ll have to uncover secret documents, explore the dead man’s home, and piece together the puzzle to name the killer.
Robot Invader Co-Founder Chris Pruett adds:
We’ve been thinking and writing about scary game design for over a decade, and we’re thrilled to now be shipping our first game in the genre. Dead Secret is focused on mystery, but we made sure that there’s a hefty dose of dread in there too.
Deeply influenced by Clock Tower, Siren, and Deadly Premonition, Dead Secret is a game that “anybody can play and enjoy.”
