VR mode released into beta!

We are very proud to announce you can now play Scanner Sombre in VR, using a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.

We've been busy working on this since Scanner Sombre launched, and we think it's one of the most atmospheric experiences we have ever created. Let us know what you think!

Mark & Chris made a video demonstrating the new Vr mode, and also discussing the critical and commercial response to the games launch. It's a difficult but honest discussion.

Scanner Sombre

We are very excited to announce that our sixth game ‘Scanner Sombre’ is finished, and is launching this Wednesday 26th April! Watch our launch trailer here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NFlo9FEfaY

Scanner Sombre began life as a short experimental prototype, created in a little over a week during the long Prison Architect alpha. We wanted to create something completely different to Prison Architect, and very different from any game we’d made before. Scanner Sombre is intended to be a deeply atmospheric experience, inspired by similar games such as Gone Home, Dear Esther, and Proteus.

Armed only with a LIDAR gun, you must explore and ultimately escape the cave. As you explore your ‘point cloud’ becomes more and more detailed and expansive.














Scanner Sombre will be on sale on Wednesday 26th April. The price will be $11.99, reduced to $9.99 for launch.


We hope you enjoy playing our latest game!

Reviews

“A beautiful but short-lived expedition that left me wanting more of its best ideas.”
80% – PC Gamer

“A short, sharp experimental adventure built around one devastatingly clever central mechanic, it's a pointed antithesis to its systems-heavy predecessor.”
Eurogamer

About This Game

Regaining consciousness you smell the damp. Opening your eyes you see the stone walls of the chamber flickering by the light of the fire; you stumble to your feet and kick a helmet clattering across the floor. Slowly the ache in your head begins to subside and you notice the beginnings of a passage. After a few steps the darkness consumes you. Returning to the safely of the fire you see a LIDAR scanner on the floor - a trigger press results in a faint glow coming from inside the helmet. You put the helmet on, adjust the beam-width and proceed into the abyss….

Inspired by Gone Home and Dear Esther, Scanner Sombre is a cave exploration experience. With stunning visuals and a terrifying theme, it is the 6th major video game released by Introversion Software - creators of the million selling, BAFTA award winning Prison Architect as well as Uplink, Darwinia, DEFCON and Multiwinia.
