Here’s a title that rather came out of left-field in the Guerrilla Collective showcase at the weekend: Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo. Published by Microids and developed by Pendulo Studios, it’s a game that’ll be heavily inspired by the iconic film and other Hitchcock work; pleasingly Switch is among the platforms being targeted for release at the end of the year.
The teaser trailer above doesn’t show a great deal, but the short Dev Diary video below does show a few snippets of actual gameplay.
It certainly seems ambitious, which is further reflected in the PR blurb below:
- An exclusive, original story about obsession, memory, manipulation and madness, freely inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece, Vertigo
- Live a powerful narrative experience paying tribute to the visual and storytelling techniques of the thriller genre
- Investigate through the vision of three characters: everyone has a different story to tell
- Explore several timelines to cross-check the events and separate reality from deceptive memories
Pendulo Studios has plenty of experience, though the Switch port of the studio’s previous release – Blacksad: Under the Skin – was particularly rough as we outlined in our review, so we hope for better on Nintendo’s system this time around.
