Cosmic Horror Narrative Broken Spectre Gets First Trailer

Broken Spectre

Canadian video game developer Games by Stich has released the very first trailer for its upcoming cosmic horror narrative VR game Broken Spectre. Broken Spectre is slated for release this summer for the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset and the latest trailer gives us a first look at this upcoming horror experience. Broken Spectre is built specifically for hand-tracking VR and you can check out the gameplay in action in the new trailer below:

In Broken Spectre, you will play as Casey, a strong-headed adventurer who is haunted by her troubled family history. Twenty-five years ago, her biologist father entered into the treacherous wilderness of Coldblood Mountain National Park however he never came back. When you learn that he is still alive, you begin your quest to find him. You break into the closed path to track his path but upon further exploration, you begin to find his mutilated experiments. As you climb higher, you face worsening weather, deadly frostbite, and grotesque horrors.

You are trapped inside this mountain’s maze and at this time, you wonder if the time is distorting your reality, or if you are starting to lose your sanity because of altitude sickness. You will need to collect clues, decipher cryptic puzzles, and perform different cult rituals to progress in the game. These will allow you to delve deeper and deeper into family traumas as you experience the mystical slow-burn horror story of the game.

According to the developer, Broken Spectre draws inspiration from cosmic horror titles like H.P. Lovecraft and John Carpenter, and it is presented in an immersive VR environment that takes full advantage of the hand-tracking capabilities of the Oculus. The producer of the game, Sonya Suraci emphasizes that the technology behind Meta’s VR hand-tracking capabilities is key for players to experience the narrative of the game.

Sonya Suraci comments:

Players will see their own hands bloodied, frostbitten and much worse. There’s something special and uncanny when experiencing this without any controllers. At one point you must stick your hand into a snake’s den to be bitten and the bite starts festering immediately.

For playing the game, you will not require any sort of controller as the game features cutting-edge hand-tracking mechanics. This makes the gameplay of Broken Spectre a unique experience as players use their own hands to experience objects, climb sheer rock faces, and fight for their lives, all building up to elements of gruesome body horror.

Evan Jones, Founder of Games by Stitch comments:

This game is meant to take you out of your comfort zone. It’s a story that begins in a beautiful forest valley but each step raises the stakes. Sometimes a jump scare will lurch you forward, but the deepest fear in cosmic horror is when you realize the world is not as it seems. The final climb to the peak is one you won’t easily forget.
