Delve into a dead man’s bizarre past to solve the mystery of his death before you become the next victim. Uniquely designed for both VR and traditional platforms, Dead Secret stirs up thrilling mystery on Monday, March 28th on Steam and as an Oculus Rift launch title. Priced at $14.99, the title will offer cross-buy support between Steam and Oculus so gamers only need to pay the price of admission once.
Who murdered Harris Bullard? A reclusive man with a mysterious past, Bullard was found dead in his study five days ago. Nobody suspects foul play, least of all the police. But you know better: this is murder, and it’s up to you to prove it.
Dead Secret is a story-driven mystery thriller in which you play as an ambitious journalist on a mission to make headlines. To get the story you’ll have to comb the crime scene for clues and decipher the mystery of Bullard’s twisted past. Uncover secret documents, explore the dead man’s home, and piece together the puzzle to correctly name the killer. But keep your wits about you: Bullard took his secrets to the grave, and somebody wants them to stay there. Dead Secret has long been a labor of love for indie developers Robot Invader, who have studied and admired great horror and mystery design for over ten years.
“As connoisseurs of horror we had a lot of fun developing Dead Secret,” Robot Invader Co-Founder Chris Pruett said. “Dead Secret is a suspenseful murder mystery, but its core design principles come straight from classic horror games.” Pruett cites Clock Tower, Siren, and Deadly Premonition as notably influential. “Dead Secret is designed to grab hold of just about anybody, whether they play in VR or on the desktop. Our hope is that fellow fans of classic horror games will particularly relish its grip.”
In addition to Oculus and Steam, Dead Secret will also arrive later this year on PlayStation VR, PS4, and PS3.
