The doors to an abandoned hotel await anxious VR players to experience a new level of horror. In A Wake Inn, you play as a wheelchair-bound mannequin who can’t seem to figure out who they are. Only the guiding voice from the shortwave transmitter accompanies you amid an army of living dolls. But why are you here? And who are you really?
Every Puppet Has A Master in A Wake Inn
The announcement trailer for A Wake Inn features a mysterious voice that provides further background into the game’s story. The voice recalls the discovery of Pneuma, something that causes non-living beings to come alive. Machines are not only able to be in motion but are capable of performing their own commands. Evidently, something went wrong. This is where you come in. The trailer ends with a jump scare before unveiling its title and the release window for early 2021.
A Wake Inn will have you sit for the entirety of the game as you traverse the world by wheelchair. Moving forward, backward, and turning around provide a very grounded experience as you solve puzzles and escape rooms. You will also have the option to engage in combat or utilize stealth when it comes to facing foes. According to the developers, the game should take about 5-6 hours to complete.
A Wake Inn is being developed and published by Polish-based studio VR Bros. It is aiming for an early 2021 release on PC via Steam. The game will support Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, Cosmos, and Windows MR.
You can add A Wake Inn now to your Steam wishlist. The game’s page also features more videos if you’re interested in learning more about the horror-filled hotel tale on wheels.
