Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 Masterpiece dizzy Has been treated as a video game for more than half a century since it first graced the silver screen.
Announcement back At the guerrilla collective showcase, Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo Developed by Pendulo Studios, it is an “exclusive original story, freely inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo.” interesting.
The game follows the life of Ed Miller, who manages to survive a fatal car accident and leaves unharmed. After the trauma of the accident, Miller claimed that his wife and daughter had an accident, but found no family body. You will be asked to unravel this mystery while playing the game. Unravel this mystery, not the mystery of the woman who died in the movie.
“The main theme of the game is almost the same as in the movie: attachment, madness, manipulation, identity, and the turmoil between imagination, dreams, memories, and reality,” said Penduro Studio’s narrative designer. One Josue Monchan said. Press release.
To advance the interactive thriller, you need to “examine some timelines, cross-check events, and separate reality from deceptive memories.” Things seem to be more flexible than when the cult movie hit, and the game will be inspired by Hitchcock’s flicks, rather than just regurgitating it.
“Of course, Alfred Hitchcock’s films are of major inspiration, whether it’s about the theme of the game, the narration, or even the visual techniques we used that clearly reflect Hitchcock’s repetitive film techniques. It was the source, “says Hitchcock.
“Dizziness is not our only criterion. For example, the fact that therapy is at the center of the story reflects spellbound, and some characters resemble protagonists such as Rebecca and Psycho.”
Without a doubt, Hitchcock fans need to be careful.
Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X at the end of the year. Please see this Steam page.
I also recently saw the interesting neo-noir indie title El Paso, Elsewhere, which was unveiled at the Guerrilla Showcase.
