Blindfold uncovered on PlayStation VR

iNK Stories' 1979 Revolution: Black Friday cast players in the role of an unbiased photojournalist covering the "electrifying" events taking place in the midst of Iran's uprising. In the newly-released VR "companion piece" Blindfold, players will see for themselves what it means to be captured and interrogated for doing just that. 

The game is set inside Tehran's "infamous Evin Prison," where you are being held and forced to endure "a harsh interrogation for spreading anti-state propaganda, as the warden Asadollah Lajevardi tests your will." Unable to speak, you can only communicate "through nodding or shaking your head, or remaining still and silent." These unspoken responses are the catalysts driving an "immersive choice-driven story" drawn from "real-life accounts and historical fact." 


Created with support from the Committee to Protect Journalists and the Center for Human Rights in Iran, Blindfold is described as a "vérité experience that explores the unique storytelling possibilities of VR." Even more than its 2016 predecessor, the new game promises a "short, harrowing experience" in which "every choice matters." The consequences of your actions aren't merely cosmetic either, as lives hang in the balance of your decisions, perhaps even your own. 

Timed to coincide with the "41st anniversary of the Black Friday massacre – a pivotal moment in the Iranian Revolution," Blindfold is available to download now from the PlayStation Store in both Europe and North America.
