Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 has been hailed by Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Adam Smith as, “2015’s smartest horror game…” and summarized by Polygon’s Collin Campbell, “Part Stanley Parable and part Alfred Hitchcock… This is a sick place, full of sick allusions and sick jokes.”
“Episode 1 was about discovering a strange new world, but in Episode 2 we explore it’s characters and introduce a very important character, Alice. ‘ExploraStoryTelling’ continues to be the driving force of Alice’s Lullaby with uncovering fiction by players exploring the gameworld from the perspective of both Alice and the melty version of YOU from Episode 1‘ said Justin Pappas, creative director of Alice’s Lullaby and Founder of Ape Law.
The Spring release of Alice’s Lullaby will have improved gameplay, for 2D and VR gaming. Added Justin, “All of our scripting is new. We’ve added a bevvy of intractable objects to the gameworld, as well as five, fully animated main characters, the five elder siblings.’
