The game was postponed due to the need for additional polishing.
The Japanese escape game Last Labyrinth debuted during the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) back in 2016 and was due out this spring before the release is postponed for this summer. Today, the developer Amata K. K. announced the re-release of the release, appointing a new window for the release in autumn 2019.
The only reason the studio decided to take this step is because the video game needs further polishing before release. The scope of work is still being estimated, and the exact date will be disclosed in the near future.
There is also some positive news: the team has officially confirmed that the list of headsets that will be supported by Last Labyrinth includes: PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift / Rift S, HTC Vive / Vive Pro and Windows Mixed Reality. The PlayStation VR version will support DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers.
Developed specifically for the game in VR, Last Labyrinth is an escape experience that is equally pleasing and convenient for playing, and at the same time quite creepy. The vague story says that you wake up in an old creepy mansion, being tied to a wheelchair and practically can’t move. Then you realize that you are not alone when a mysterious girl named Katya appears from the darkness. She never says a word, and the only way to communicate with you will be a couple of nods and shaking your head.
Katya frees you, and you will have to interact with each room with the help of her to explore them. You can control it with a laser pointer attached to the head and a button on your hand to activate it. However, this is not a fun game, because each room is filled with all sorts of unpleasant mechanisms and traps that will kill you if you make at least one mistake.
Earlier this year, Amata K. K. conducted a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to collect ¥ 2,000,000 (£ 13,965 GBP) on Last Labyrinth. The studio also said that the international model, actress and singer Stephanie Yosten, whose appearance and voice were used to create the Quiet character from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (2015), will be Katya’s voice.
VRcue will continue its coverage of Last Labyrinth and let you know when the exact release date will be known.
