Noir horror Dollhouse coming to PS4

PC closed beta planned.


Dollhouse, a noir-style “self-driven horror” game from independent studio Creazn, will come to PlayStation 4 in addition to its previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux platforms in early 2016, publisher Soedesco announced.

Here’s a summary of the horror title, via Soedesco:

In Dollhouse, you will be entering the mind of Marie, a detective trying to unravel her past. As she crawls deeper and deeper into her mind, she slowly discover that she might not be who she really thinks she is… Dollhouse’s narrative adapts to the player’s decisions based on what memories players kept or deleted to define who they were. All this is happening inside a world that reinvents ways players perceive horror in both singleplayer and multiplayer modes utilizing suspense over jump scares.

A new trailer released today teases “a self-constructing mystery deteriorating with time waiting to be solved.” It promises “dozens of unlockable abilities,” “a large cast of playable characters,” “cooperative and competitive multiplayer,” and “procedurally generated campaigns.”

A Steam-based closed beta will be held sometime before release. Interested users can sign up via this Google Docs form.

(Editor’s Note: This news was supposed to be embargoed until August 13, though it was published early and is openly accessible on GamesPress, thus our publishing of the story.)
