As part of our UploadVR Showcase: Summer Edition, we’ve just premiered a brand new trailer for sci-fi noir adventure game The Rig: A Starmap To Murder. It’s set to launch for PC VR before the end of this month.
The Rig: A Starmap To Murder, developed by Sunset Division, first came onto our radar earlier this month. It’s a point-and-click style adventure game for VR, in a sci-fi setting with a story inspired by classic detective tales like The Maltese Falcon and Touch of Evil. We also got a first look at the game with a trailer that laid out some of the game’s basic plot points — you’re boarding a remote mining rig and will be looking for clues that point to the whereabouts of your missing brother.
As you can see in that first trailer, you’ll complete a mix of different puzzles, built from the ground up for VR, as you run an original story that is fully voice-acted. In our Summer Showcase, we just debuted a brand new trailer, embedded above. It’s short but sweet, and gives us a peek at more of those fantastic voice overs and a better look at the awesome noir and sci-fi visual style.
The Rig: A Starmap To Murder is set to launch this month on SteamVR with support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index. We haven’t got an exact date just yet, but until then the game is available to wishlist on Steam .
