It’s close enough to the end of 2018 now that we’re starting to look ahead to what we can’t wait to play in 2019. It looks like Last Labyrinth will be one such game.
Japanese developer Amata K.K. this month announced that this new escape room game will be launching on the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Windows VR and PlayStation VR headsets in spring 2019. A demo will be on display at this year’s Tokyo Game Show (TGS), which gets underway in a few weeks’ time.
In Last Labyrinth, the player awakens to find themselves locked in a strange mansion filled with puzzles. A mysterious girl accompanies them as they make their way through the world, deciphering clues and unlocking doors. The game was awarded the Best VR/AR Contents prize at Laval Virtual when it was first shown last year. It’s directed by Hiromichi Takahashi, who also directed Doko Demo Issyo, the game that gave birth to Sony’s Toro PlayStation mascot, in 1999.
Escape Room Games are a dime a dozen in VR, but we’re hoping Last Labyrinth’s focus on the relationship between two characters gives it the edge.
