The Inpatient is an interactive drama survival horror game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation VR. The game was officially announced on the E3 2017 on June 12, 2017 and set to release on January 24, 2018.
The game acts as a prequel to Until Dawn, taking place 60 years prior to the events at the Washington Lodge. The game follows an amnesiac, whose gender is chosen by the player, as they try to find out who they are and how they came to be a patient at the Blackwood Pines Sanatorium.
The Inpatient follows a single protagonist and is played completely in the first person to facilitate its compatibility with Sony's PSVR headset. Just like in Until Dawn, all of your choices will have consequences and will dramatically affect the story and the lives of the characters. Innovative voice controls means your character says what you want.
At the start of the game, a mysterious man named Jefferson Bragg, the owner of the Sanatorium, is questioning you. He says he's trying to help you, but all is not what it seems. Eventually, you discover who you are and why you're in the Sanatorium. Over the course of the game you'll meet a variety of interesting patients and staff, each with their own motivations and agendas. How you react to these characters and the choices you make will have profound and dramatic consequences for how the story unfolds.
