Highly Anticipated ‘Wilson’s Heart’ Set for April 25th Release
Wilson’s Heart, winner of 2016 gamescon’s Best Virtual Reality Game Award, comes to Oculus Rift touch on April 25, 2017.
With AAA-quality graphics, deep gameplay, immersive narrative complexity, and an all-star voicecast featuring Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Top Five), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Raiders of the Lost Ark), and Peter Weller (RoboCop, Star Trek Into Darkness), this game has fans chomping at the bit.
The neo-noir, psychological thriller is not for the faint of heart. Set in a 1940’s black and white haunted hospital world, users wake up as disoriented 60-year-old patient Robert Wilson, and play the game in first person perspective. Weller plays the voice of Wilson, the game’s protagonist.
Stumbling through blood-soaked corridors with dramatic lighting and sound design, users experience sensory overload as surprises lurch out from behind every corner. It is up to you to solve the mystery of what happened to your heart, and how to use the mystical orb that has been put in its place, to your advantage.
Created by Twisted Pixels studio, this intricate storyline lends 8-10 hours of gameplay. As the hospital hauntings intensify, you and your fellow patients must traverse increasingly maddening corridors, overcome frightening environmental hazards and work together to defeat the sinister inhabitants in your pursuit to reveal who stole your heart… and why.
With natural movements and intuitive controls, Touch lets you navigate the world around you with your own hands, solve puzzles under pressure, and engage in hand to hand combat with ghouls (in your new, 60-year-old body!). By removing your new heart out of your chest during times of trouble or when needing to complete a puzzle, you will unlock “Heart Powers” such as “The Wanderer,” one of powers needed to complete the game.
According to Twisted Pixels, ““The Wanderer” seeks out and delivers penance to those who deserve it. As Robert Wilson, you will rip the heart device out of your chest and guide it around with a wave of your hand, using it in combat and to solve puzzles alike. The Wanderer is one of four heart powers you will unearth in the game.”
Wilson’s Heart will be available for $39.99 exclusively for Oculus Rift with Touch. We surely can’t wait to get our hands on it.
