The age of virtual reality is upon us, and one of the first such games to hit the market is Robot Invader's Dead Secret. That doesn't mean that non-VR gamers are left out in the cold, however, as the game is available for standard PCs as well.
Dead Secret thrusts players into the first-person role of an investigator looking into the murder of the reclusive Professor Harris Bullard in rural Kansas, circa 1965. Naturally you'll need to "investigate the crime scene, uncover secret documents, and piece together the puzzle to name his killer", but you'll soon discover that Bullard was no ordinary victim. As you scour his home for clues, you'll uncover "strange devices" that you'll use to "explore the deepest recesses of your subconscious." But beware, as others have a vested interest in keeping Bullard's secrets quiet, and a masked murderer is now on your tail to silence you as well.
Designed "specifically for play with the Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and other virtual reality platforms", Dead Secret can also be played on standard PCs in the usual free-roaming 3D fashion. Along the way, you must search for key items, solve puzzles, and collect evidence, all while keeping your wits about you in order to stay alive.
For early adopters of the virtual reality technology, Dead Secret is available now for the Gear VR, with an Oculus Rift version to follow. For the many still gaming in regular reality, the PC version can be purchased on Steam, which will include a free Oculus unlock code when the system is available.
