Publisher Microids today announced Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, a horror adventure coming soon to all platforms.

Today the publisher Microids and the developer Pendulo Studio they announced Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, a work arriving on all platforms ready to remind us of the works of the homonymous author.

According to what we know, and what is shown in the trailer that you can admire on the cover of the article, it is a psychological horror-themed adventure that will aim to tell a story of obsession, memory, manipulation and madness inspired by the events of the author.

The techniques used to create the graphic sector anticipate a product that is nothing short of inspired, able to really mark the player with the recurring theme of psychology.

Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo specifically presents itself as an investigative adventure in which the player will impersonate three different characters, who will have stories to tell to the user during the hours of play, who will also find himself exploring different timelines from time to time.

Below, the translated statement by Pendulu Studios’ narrative designer, Josue Monchan, released through a press release:

Obviously, Alfred Hitchcock’s film was a major source of inspiration, in terms of the themes of the game, its storytelling, and also the visual techniques used that we used and they clearly mirrored the author’s recurring techniques.

Vertigo is not just our reference image. For example, the fact that therapy is at the heart of the narrative echoes Spellbound, and some characters resemble protagonists Rebecca, Psyco, and many others.

Currently, we unfortunately do not have a release date in front of us, as the video shows us a generic “coming soon”, which nevertheless gives us hope, also considering that the product launch window is 2021. We look forward of news about the game, which, we remind you, as the movie shows will make its debut on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S And Xbox One.
