Horror Thriller The Inpatient Out Today for PS VR

Posted by on Jan 23, 2018

Supermassive Games is really excited to open the doors to the Blackwood Pine Sanatorium today, and I want tell you a bit more about how we built the dark and mysterious world of The Inpatient.

The team invested a significant amount of our initial development time looking at the different ways it could work, so even the simplest of decisions can have profound effects on the story. It was important to us that even the smallest detail was considered — something as small as turning left or right down a corridor can have dramatic consequences on your experience.
