Montague’s Mount is a psychological thriller that reminds me a bit of Dear Esther with just a hint of Amnesia. Even better, the title will feature Oculus Rift support! Montague’s Mount’s creator, Matt Clifton is really excited to have his game on the Oculus Rift, noting that he backed the Oculus when it was on Kickstarter.
From Polypusher Studios and Mastertronic, Montague’s Mount is a first-person rollercoaster ride through isolation, desolation and one man’s tortured mind, set against the bleakness of an isolated Irish island. The player regains consciousness on a windswept beach, with no memory of the past. Exploration and puzzle solving are the keys to finding out what happened – and to escaping the island. Polypusher is a one-man studio based in Ireland; the game blends personal experience with realistic landscapes and makes extensive use of the Gaelic language throughout.
Montague’s Mount will be available on Good Old Games, Get Games and GamersGate for PC, Mac, and Linux on October 9th, just in time for Halloween. You can even vote for it on Steams Greenlight.
