We’ll have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on Amata K.K.’s VR escape room, Last Labyrinth.
The developer this week confirmed that the game will now launch in summer 2019. It had previously been targetting a spring release date. The developer said that the change was made to “further ensure the quality of the game prior to release.”
There’s a new trailer to ease the wait, though. In the latest look at the game we hear the main theme from composer Hiroki Kikuta. It’s a melancholic piece that reminds us of From Software’s Deracine. Most noticeably, it’s sung by Dutch singer, Stefani Joosten, who did motion capture for Quiet in Metal Gear Solid V. Joosten will also be lending her voice to the game in the role of Katia. In Last Labyrinth, Katia is your green-haired companion that follows your commands. She solves puzzles at your direction and helps guide you through each room.
Interestingly the game will have its own language which the song is sung in. It’s an interesting idea that reminds us of the fictional languages used in games like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
The news comes as Last Labyrinth closes in on its Kickstarter funding goal. It’s just a fraction off of its $17,700 goal at the time of writing. This campaign isn’t to fund development itself rather aid with marketing the game. It’s due to finish on March 25th.
Look for Last Labyrinth on PSVR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows VR headsets later this year.
