Tequila Works has created a story that can only be told in a VR game. The Invisible Hours is a complex murder mystery in VR, in which players freely explore an intricate web of interwoven stories within a sprawling mansion – in order to untangle the dark truth at its heart. It is one of the deepest narrative experiences in VR to date.
All seven suspects in the mansion continue their stories in real time throughout the game, even if the player is not there to see them. This means there are seven very different but intersecting stories all happening at the same time. Players will need to make careful decisions about where to be, and when, in order to unravel the mystery.
The player is invisible to the cast of characters, giving them freedom to follow and observe anyone in the story – or to explore the mansion for hidden clues at their own pace. The game is a gripping mystery, and to find all its deepest secrets will require careful observation and exploration.
