I know I mention this in every story I write about Last Labyrinth but this latest trailer for the game still mentions that it’s made by the ‘Co-creator of the Sony Cat’ and I respect that.
Anyway, this is our best look at the promising escape room adventure yet. Last Labyrinth is an atmospheric puzzle game in which you find yourself locked in a series of rooms, bound to a wheelchair. A young companion, Katia, is by your side, following your instructions. You need to work together to solve challenges and escape with your life.
In this latest look at the game you can see some of those trials in action. Singer Stefanie Joosten lends her voice to the theme you can hear. She also takes on the role of Katia in the game. The end of the footage also showcases what might happen if you get some puzzles wrong. Spoilers: it doesn’t end well.
As for the cat thing? The game’s directed by Hiromichi Takahashi, who created cartoon feline, Toro Inoue, for PlayStation. He was a sort of mascot for the brand in Japan. You could also play as him in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Remember that?
Other credits include Tetsuya Watanabe, who worked on Puppeteer and The Last Guardian, and composer Hiroki Kikuta.
Anyway, Last Labyrinth was recently delayed, meaning it’s now set to release this fall. It’ll arrive on PSVR, Rift, Vive and Windows VR headsets. No word on a Quest version just yet but it certainly seems like it’d be a good fit.
