Explore a Nightmare Mansion in DreamBack VR Later This Year

DreamBack

Come Over Gaming is one of the latest developers to throw its hat into the VR horror ring, debuting its first project, DreamBack VR, with a teaser trailer recently.

The footage (embedded below) reveals little about the project beyond its thick atmosphere; the protagonist explores a darkened mansion with the aid of a torch, while at least a small amount of environmental interaction is evident from the unlocking of a door. The developer has also announced that doors, interactive notes, and puzzle parts will be implemented in the game.

DreamBack is set in the United Kingdom on a night in 1992 and has players making their way through the Rickfford Mansion, which is home to deep secrets.

To aid immersion, Come Over Gaming is employing binaural recording for the audio experience. Few other details about the project have been revealed so far.

DreamBack is being developed on Unreal Engine 4 and is targeting a release at some point later this year, exclusively for Steam.

Come Over Gaming was founded in 2014, with lead developer Eneko Celayeta previously having 12 years of experience in hardware and software development in the motorsport simulation industry.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
