During Sony’s conference, a bevvy of brand new PSVR experiences was announced and Supermassive Games’ The Inpatient was among them. What might not have been immediately apparent, despite the now glaringly obvious hints, is that The Inpatient is a prequel to Until Dawn.
One of the game’s directors, Nik Bowen, took to a blog post to explain a little more about the game.
“The Inpatient is a horror game with psychological elements. It places you in the role of a patient with amnesia and is set in the Blackwood Sanatorium, over 60 years prior to the award-winning Until Dawn.
Anyone familiar with Until Dawn will recognize the imposing sanatorium but this time you’ll see everything as it was during its 1950s heyday. For newcomers to the story, don’t worry – you don’t need to have played Until Dawn to be able to enjoy The Inpatient; it’s an entirely standalone title with a brand new story and cast of characters to meet.”
