Microids teases new “Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo” game with new trailer

Games company Microids has just released a brand new trailer for Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, a game freely inspired by the eponymous movie, introducing the thriller’s main characters for the first time.

The new trailer offers the opportunity to discover the characters’ motivations – and their relationship at the core of a new kind of narrative experience, where confusion and doubt play a key role…

Crafted entirely with in-game footage, this new story trailer introduces the writer Ed Miller, a car accident survivor suffering from intense vertigo. Convinced he just lost his wife and daughter in the crash, Ed starts therapy and reluctantly begins confiding in a psychiatrist, Doctor Julia Lomas. But Julia will have to fight against Ed’s reluctance to dive deep into his memory and find out the hidden truth.

Players will also have the chance to follow the Cerro Lake’s sheriff’s investigation, as he tries to solve this mystery.
