Dreamy Murder Mystery ‘Dead Secret Circle’ Gets A New Trailer
Originally revealed last year, Dead Secret Circle is nearing its planned May 1 release date. If a new trailer is anything to go by, it should be another fun horror romp from VR developer Robot Invader.
Dead Secret Circle is a period murder mystery set in 1971 Chicago. Players take the role of Patricia Gable, an investigative reporter on the trail of a serial killer. Based on the game’s Steam store page, Dead Secret Circle promises to be full of “slow-burn psychological horror” featuring “multiple endings, a huge collection of hidden items and documents, and branching dialog paths.”
The VR horror market is a growing one, but that doesn’t change the fact that in recent years it’s become oversaturated with lackluster efforts that do nothing to mix up the established first person horror formula. With a unique setting and its dreamlike sequences, Dead Secret Circle might be able to deliver a more unique experience befitting the successful Dead Circle.
Dead Secret released in 2015 to positive reviews. While it began as a mobile horror game, it found success in the VR spacemand proved to be a worthy take on Amnesia-esque first person horror. You can read our original review right here.
