Horror fans will be pleased to hear that Dreampainters, the indie Italian studio behind last year's Anna, is hard at work crafting their next fright-filled outing, White Heaven.
The new game takes place in the same fictional universe as Anna, and tells the tale of Eric Blanc, the son of a wealthy family who is kidnapped and held for ransom by a criminal gang in an abandoned mountain hotel, the titular White Heaven. Players will take control of Eric shortly after he discovers that the door of his cell is unlocked, and will be tasked with helping him flee. However, he has fallen in love with one of his captors, and must go in search of her before he can make his escape. Naturally, his (and the player’s) search will be thwarted by the discovery that dark forces wait for him in the shadowy recesses of the hotel.
Aside from the promise of another chilling first-person experience, White Heaven’s most notable features include full 3D rendering using the upcoming state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4, and the game’s compatibility with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
White Heaven is slated for release in the first quarter of 2014 on PC and Mac. In the meantime, visit the official website for more information.
