Update: Artifact 5 has clarified that Anamorphine will not support PSVR at launch on PS4, though it’s possible the game integrates the headset later down the line. Original story is below.
Having been delayed back at the start of this year, mental health-focused VR experience, Anamorphine, will be releasing very, very soon.
Developer Artifact 5 today confirmed that the game will launch on PSVR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with optional standard screen support on July 31st. It’s set to cost $19.99. Originally we thought the game was still going to be arriving in late Q1 of this year but it looks like the team needed a little extra time.
In the game, you step into the shoes of Tyler and explore his relationship with his wife, Elena, who was left unable to play cello after a tragic accident. Tyler struggles to come to terms with these events, leading players on a journey through his psyche. The experience doesn’t use any dialogue and the gameplay is completely focused on the narrative.
We’re hoping that Anamorphine delivers a truly fascinating exploration of a subject not often touched in gaming. VR support should give us a chance to climb further into the mind of Tyler and hopefully bring us a deeper understanding of the game’s subject matter.
