Ditch the VR and immerse yourself in the murder mystery of The Invisible Hours

-

Originally created with VR in mind, launching on the usual virtual reality platforms late last year, The Invisible Hours is now doing away with the need of a headset in order to hit the big console market. Will you be taking a look at the intriguing murder mystery story that is contained within?

Available from today on Xbox One, PS4 and PC (to compliment the existing Oculus, Vive and PSVR editions), The Invisible Hours is a complex murder mystery created in the style of immersive theatre. With a £21.99 price tag in place, a download will let you explore and observe a wonderful tale of interwoven stories played out within a huge mansion. Your task? To untangle the dark truth whilst taking in one of the deepest narratives in gaming.

But it won’t be easy and with 7 suspect’s stories all playing out simultaneously, it’ll be up to you to choose how to manage your time effectively, taking in the different perspectives and building up the story as you go.

With inspiration coming direct from the classic murder mysteries such as Agatha Christie’s masterpiece And Then There Were None, Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige, and the immersive theatre show of Punchdrunk, if you’re looking for something to really get your teeth into, the The Invisible Hours promises to be it.

To get involved and find your time eaten by a sprawling storyteller, then get over to the Microsoft Store and grab The Invisible Hours on Xbox One right now. As previously mentioned, the game is also now available on PS4 and PC too.

We’ll have a full review very soon. Keep an eye out for it.

Game Description:

The Invisible Hours is a complex murder mystery in which players freely explore an intricate web of interwoven stories within a sprawling mansion. A group of strangers receive a curious invitation from the enigmatic inventor, Nikola Tesla, offering each of them the chance to make amends for their darkest wrongdoings. When the last guest arrives at Tesla’s isolated mansion laboratory, they find him dead – murdered. Disgraced Swedish detective, Gustaf Gustav, vows to find the killer amongst the other guests: a blind butler, a convicted murderer, the world’s most famous actress, Tesla’s former assistant, the son of a wealthy railroad magnate, and rival inventor Thomas Edison. But none of these people are what they seem. The player is invisible, with freedom to follow and observe anyone in the story – or to explore the mansion for hidden clues.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
