Dead Secret is a PC / Windows FPP adventure horror game. It was developed by Robot Invader, previously known for mobile games, and lead by Chris Pruett – commonly recognized by his passion for themes of fear. The project was initiated on 2013, but after some work, it was dropped. With the development of the VR technology, Pruett came back to the idea, and started making it compatible with VR goggles such as Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, or PlayStation VR.

Plot

The action is set in the USA during 1960s. The protagonist is a journalist trying to solve the mysterious death of professor Harris Bullard – an eccentric loner. According to the police, he died of natural causes, but the truth is totally different, and a gloomy secret from the past seems to be involved in his death. Unfortunately, it was taken to the grave along with its owner, and some people want to keep it that way. The task is to solve it, before we become another dead body.

Mechanics

Dead Secret mixes features of a standard detective-adventure game with popular Japanese horror games. During the game, we roam through the mansion of the murdered professor, collecting different items, hidden documents, evidence, and traces. We can also utilize professor’s bizarre inventions, allowing to penetrate deepest reaches of human subconsciousness. The further we’re in the game, the more pieces of the shady puzzle we have, which brings us closer to knowing the truth. The game isn’t based on relaxed exploration only: our actions are observed by a murderer hidden in the mansion: confrontation with him means death of the protagonist. The game has five different endings, which depend on our capabilities as detectives and the decisions we make.

Technical aspects

Dead Secret for PC / Windows doesn’t actually stand out with its graphics, though the locations are rather detailed, and the whole game is set in a gloomy and uneasy atmosphere. The fact that the game was first published in a regular version (without the VR support) is should be noted, although, when it was released, the VR edition was free-of-charge for everyone who already owned the game.
