Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo will be a kind of video game

Indie game developer Pendulo Studios makes a game called Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. When Microïds announced in 2018 that it had licensed Hitchcock’s name and character for Vertigo, it said the game would be “loosely based” on the classic film.

However, judging by the trailer, which premiered recently, it looks like the game will mostly share thematic parallels with the movie. He will also borrow signature visual motifs from his opening sequence, which was designed by Saul Bass. As many moviegoers know, Vertigo follows a former police officer who becomes obsessed with a client’s wife and slowly begins to wonder if he can trust his own mind. The film is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.

According to the recent dev diary of narrative designer Josué Monchan, the game is about a man who is injured after a car accident. The man believes that his family was in the car with him during the collision, but it is unclear if he can trust his memories, like Jimmy Stewart in the film. In the same dev diary, Monchan said the studio plans to recreate some of Hitchcock’s signature tricks, including the “cart zoom effect,” which is closely related to vertigo. (This includes rotating the camera on the cart to one side and zooming in or out to slightly distort the static image.)

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo will hit PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X sometime in 2021.
