Independent studio Ape Law is set to release Episode 1 of the psychological horror game Albino Lullaby as an Oculus Store launch title on March 28, with the release of the Oculus Rift. The studio, comprised of veterans from Bioshock: Infinite, top-selling indie title Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and the Tomb Raider reboot, will bring their made-for-VR, no jump scares, no gore horror game to the Oculus Store on launch day.
Hailed by Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Adam Smith as, “2015’s smartest horror game…” and summarized by Polygon’s Collin Campbell, “Part Stanley Parable and part Alfred Hitchcock… This is a sick place, full of sick allusions and sick jokes.”
“To be completely surrounded by a game world like Albino Lullaby is a totally unparalleled experience right now; we are thrilled our design philosophy works so well with the Rift and honored that Oculus Store chose to include us on launch day,” said Justin Pappas, creative director ofAlbino Lullaby and Founder of Ape Law.
