Psychological Thriller Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo Coming Later This Year


A new psychological thriller, players will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Microids and Pendulo Studios’ Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo later this year.

This narrative and adventure game is freely inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 American film noir psychological thriller Vertigo. It tells the story of writer Ed Miller, who managed to come out unscathed from a car crash that happened in Brody Canyon, California. He insists that he was traveling with his wife and daughter, but there was nobody else to be found in the wreckage of the event. This soon causes Ed to suffer from severe vertigo, and he sets out on a journey to find out what really happened that day.

According to Josué Monchan, Narrative Designer at Pendulo Studios:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“Of course, Alfred Hitchcock’s movie was a major inspiration source, whether it’s about the game’s themes, its narration, or even the visual techniques we used that clearly mirror Hitchcock’s recurrent cinematographic techniques. Vertigo is not our only frame of reference. For instance, the fact that therapy is at the core of the narrative echoes Spellbound, and some characters resemble protagonists from Rebecca, Psycho, and many more.”[/testimonials]

The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
