Audio-Based Stealth Thriller Stifled Gets PSVR Release Date

We’ve been hearing about intriguing stealth thriller title Stifled for some time, but soon we’ll finally get to play it.

Stifled is coming to PlayStation VR (PSVR) in just over two weeks’ time on October 31st, developer Gattai Games confirmed on the PlayStation Blog. The game has been in development for some three years in Singapore, making it one of the first PSVR titles to stem of Sony’s efforts in the region.

In Stifled the world around you is pitch black. You illuminate the path in front of you by making sounds detected by PSVR’s microphone. Make too much noise, though, and you’ll also alert enemies to your position. It’s played with a DualShock 4 and also supports a non-VR mode. Check out the trailer below.

We went hands-on with the game late last year and found the core mechanic to be particularly terrifying. Hopefully the full game is just as good.

What's your reaction?
