Microids and Pendulo Studios have shared a new story trailer for Alfred Hitchcock: Vertigo, a narrative adventure game that is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This has introduced the game’s main characters, their motivations and their relationships. If you hadn’t already guessed, this “exclusive, original story about obsession, memory, manipulation and madness” takes inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 movie Vertigo.
After writer Ed Miller emerges unscathed from a car crash down into Brody Canyon, California, even though no one else was found inside the wreckage he insists that he was travelling with his wife and daughter. Traumatised by the event he starts to suffer from severe vertigo and, through therapy, hopes to uncover what had really happened on that tragic day.
Reluctantly confiding in his psychiatrist, Julia Lomas, she will have to fight against his reluctance to be able to descend deeper into his memory and discover the hidden truth.
You will have the chance to investigate through the vision of three characters that each has a different story to tell, exploring several timelines to cross-check the events in an effort to separate reality from deceptive memories.
Alfred Hitchcock: Vertigo will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in 2022.
