In an exclusive interview with Gamingbolt, producer Jack Zeiba revealed that the game will be around 8-10 hours long. This is great news considering this would be the ideal length for a horror title. Furthermore, the game will not feel stretched either. In addition to this, Zeiba also revealed that about 33% of the game will consist of the Dual Reality gameplay.

“The game does not appear with dual reality gameplay all the time as players can expect to play in it about 33% of the game, while the rest of the game takes place within a single reality, either in the real world or in the spiritual world.

The Dual Reality gameplay is one of the most important aspects of this game. It allows players to experience things happening in the real world and the spirit world simultaneously. This is an ability of the game’s protagonist Marianne, who acts as a ‘Medium’ and can travel to the spirit world. This is something no other game has had before and is a feature that sets it apart from others..

Additionally, the game’s antagonist, The Maw, is voiced by popular VO artist Troy Baker. Baker is famous for his role as Joel Miller in The Last of Us titles. Clearly, the game has everything it needs to be a smash hit and will possibly kick things off for Xbox Series X & S as well.
