Sumo has bought The Chinese Room.
Just under a year after the launch of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, a "walking simulator" about dealing with loss in Shropshire in 1984, it won three BAFTAs. For its developer The Chinese Room, it seemed things couldn't get any better. Fans anxiously awaited the studio's next big project. They're still waiting.
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Dear Esther, and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs developer The Chinese Room is releasing a new game this Thursday, 21st September, for Google's VR headset Daydream View. It's a sci-fi affair called So Let Us Melt and its premise is a doozy.
