We've all been there. You wake up and your heart has been replaced by some sinister and mysterious device. That's the premise for spooky, noir thriller Wilson's Heart, a virtual reality game released on Oculus today. This launch trailer will give you a taste of the monochromatic horror on offer.
The setting for the game is a 1940's hospital and the main character is Robert Wilson, the guy with the missing heart. You'll also encounter surgeon Bela Belasco, medical researcher Elsa Walcott and a murderous teddy bear called Boris. The cast includes Peter Weller from RoboCop and Star Trek: Into Darkness, Rosario Dawson of Sin City, Luke Cage and Iron Fist and Alfred Molina of Spider-Man 2 and Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Movie composer Christopher Young – who has worked on Hellraiser, Drag Me To Hell and Sinister – provides the music.
The game was created exclusively for Oculus Rift by Austin, Texas studio Twisted Pixel. Before Wilson's Heart it released racing battle game LocoCycle and shooter The Gunstringer.
