Aspyr Media has announced Torn, a ‘dark’ science fiction mystery inspired by The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror (the TV show, not the game). It’s coming to PS VR, Oculus, and Vive this spring.
Torn VR – It’s Not Doctor Who
Here’s our first look at the peculiar world, which features what appears to be a sonic screwdriver, although we’re not sure it’s meant to be one:
Every science fiction mystery needs a good story: we begin the journey in 1953 when on the brink of a major scientific breakthrough, the renowned physicist Dr Lawrence Talbot has vanished. For 64 years, his mansion remained hidden away from the world, his eerie laboratory and work all but forgotten. Until now, of course.
Torn is the first VR game developed in-house at Aspyr Studio and was written by Neill Glancy (Stranglehold), Susan O’Connor (Tomb Raider, BioShock), along with an original orchestral score composed by Garry Schyman (BioShock, Middle Earth: Shadow of War). The title has its credentials then.
We’ll find out soon whether it’s worth your time (and money) when it releases this spring.
