Sekai Project have announced a new Playstation VR game named Project Lux. A VR animated story written by Isuna Hasekura (Spice & Wolf, Billionaire Girl, World End Economica).
In a world where most people have "cyberbrains", the game takes place in a trial setting, where the evidence is taken from the memories of the defendant. You take the place of the titular Lux and must solve the mystery.
From the press release:
As Lux recalls her past, explores her emotions and brings the puzzle pieces together, you befriend and examine her body language, her expressions...What lies beyond her eyes, her words? Throughout the story, certain decisions must be made, affecting the outcome and the ultimate resolution that Lux will face. Several endings ensure that each time you venture back into Lux's mind, the results is never quite the same. This is not a simple experience, nor a simple animation film. This is Project Lux, a VR adventure in which you examine a being, a girl of flesh and blood in a digital age. Unlike anything seen on PlayStation®VR to date, Project Lux is a leap forward in animation and visual novels, a virtual look into the future.
We are also proud to announce that a physical edition of Project Lux will be available exclusively from Limited Run Games!
Realistic animations and facial expressions bringing Lux into life, interacting and reacting to your decisions.
Story by Isuna Hasekura, the world famous creator of Spice & Wolf.
Several endings depicting the different outcomes of Lux's trial.
Character design by Lunatic Joker, one of Japan's premier illustration and design artist.
