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 promises to be one of the deepest narrative experiences in VR to date.
A group of seven strangers receive a curious invitation from enigmatic inventor Nikola Tesla, offering each of them the chance to make amends for their darkest wrongdoings. When the last guest arrives at Tesla’s isolated mansion laboratory, they find Tesla dead – murdered – and a mystery begins to unfold.
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. Meaning that there are seven very different but intersecting stories all happening at the same time. You 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.
