Robot Invader, the team behind Dead Secret, have been developing the game for console since 2013. In 2014, they decided to make their main focus virtual reality, which forced them to re-build the game again from the ground up to fit their new virtual reality needs. The end result is a hybrid game. While Dead Secret may be designed specifically for VR, it remains firmly connected to its console gaming roots it was originally based upon. The team at Robot Invader spent years researching how games in the horror and mystery genre work, and what lead to their success. Dead Secret is heavily influenced by games such as Clock Tower, Siren, and Deadly Premonition, so if you've enjoyed any of these games, you just might enjoy Dead Secret as well. They describe the game as something anybody can play and enjoy, but they hope that fans of the horror genre will be pleased with the end result.
Dead Secret will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in January 2016 with Cross Buy support. The PlayStation VR version will launch later in 2016.
