Another VR escape room launched a crowd-funding campaign this week. This one looks a little more conventional than The Goodbye Room, though.
Last Labyrinth is a new game from AMATA K.K.. We first wrote about the game back in September 2018. It has the rather weird claim to fame of being invented by the man that created PlayStation’s Toro Mascot, Hiromichi Takahashi. The team is looking to raise $18,255 by March 25th. At the time of writing, it’s already $2,000 into that goal.
The first proper trailer for the game also arrived alongside the Kickstarter. Last Labyrinth looks like a particularly vicious VR escape room; deadly traps seem to threaten your every move. You’re joined by a mysterious girl who looks like she’s about to meet an untimely end more often than not. You can guide her by nodding and shaking your head.
AMATA K.K. says funds for the game will mainly be used for marketing the project. In fact, it sounds like the actual game is nearly finished. The Kickstarter is estimating a May 2019 release date across Rift, Vive, Windows VR and PSVR.
You can pledge $32 to secure a digital copy of the game. Backer rewards stretch all the way up to around $5,000. For that hefty sum you’ll get to design a puzzle in the game. You’ll also receive a figure of the Katia character and a bunch of other goodies. Stretch goals haven’t been announced as of yet.
We’re hoping for brain-bending puzzles out of this one. Check back in a few months to see if it’s up to snuff.
