This Bed We Made was a game I stumbled across in an advert on social media. When I looked into the game further, it immediately piqued my interest. For those who are not aware of the game, you can now wishlist it on Steam here. What we know from the brief introduction is the game “is a third-person mystery game in which you play as a maid in a 1950s hotel”. By snooping around the guest’s rooms you are able to “uncover their deadly secrets”.
So the game is set in the 1950s as we see and we play as Sophie. It is a narrative mystery in which Sophie solves the secret that binds the hotel guests together through their items. The aspects of the gameplay will include.
- NEO-NOIR INVESTIGATION: Discover a dark, mysterious and intriguing story with a touch of glamour and murder as you explore three atmospheric floors of the Clarington Hotel;
- GUILTY PLEASURE: Explore your (in)discrete fascination with other people’s lives while you inspect their belongings in 360° and solve puzzles;
- CONFIDENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS: Form intimate bonds with hotel employees and guests, including your choice of ally between street-smart Beth and book-smart Andrew;
- LIFELIKE CONSEQUENCES: Every action taken, and every door opened, can have an impact on how the story unfolds… including how you tidy up the rooms!
The minimum requirements on Steam are listed as follows,
- OS: Windows 7 and up
- Processor: i5
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: GeForce GTX 660
- DirectX: Version 11
- Storage: 10 GB available space
- Additional Notes: Subject to change
This Bed We Made And How It Plays
Visually, it appears to be fairly detailed and clean. It has not taken the more realistic visual approach of games such as The Callisto Protocol. The texturing and primary character models, on the other hand, are extremely detailed. We also have amazing lighting, as you can see.
The big test will be how the gameplay is. Fortunately, it’s incredibly stable and simple to learn and comprehend how the mechanics function. It’s also worth a shot for aficionados of these kinds of games. So, without further ado, here’s the video with some captured footage.
I was impressed with the performance of the demo. The game is bound for PC via Steam and it is not clear if it will make it consoles. No console port is 100% though we should hear some news soon according to the developer.
Based on the replies, a console release would not be surprising. However, until confirmed, it is exclusively for PC. But, I can’t wait to see more of it. What are your thoughts? Would you like to play this game? As always, please share your thoughts with us.
