Critic Reviews for The Invisible Hours


No Recommendation / Blank

A brave VR murder mystery experiment inspired by immersive theatre, but the asking price is too high.

The Invisible Hours is less about solving a murder and more about appreciating the interwoven stories of its compelling characters.

There's a complex narrative arcing across all of The Invisible Hours, and Tequila Works found a novel way to present it. It's the rare video game that requires no real player intervention to complete. But, the best possible payoff is a result of diligently following all the stories and getting a full picture of all the proceedings. By the end, you'll feel as if you cleverly solved this murder. In all actuality, you only watched the murder solve itself. That is The Invisible Hours' greatest theatrical feat.

The Invisible Hours is not a game for everyone and is not even one of the most immersive VR titles recently seen, but as a narrative experience it's worth a lot.

A fascinating experiment that appropriates PSVR technology to create immersive theatre, The Invisible Hours is quite unlike anything else on Sony's Virtual Reality platform.

It's the unique way in which individual stories overlap that makes The Invisible Hours such a great game. You'll need to replay this story multiple times over in order to uncover all of its secrets, and with each run you'll come to appreciate its choreography more and more. Existing inside a living, breathing world with famous historical figures like Thomas Edison is what virtual reality was made for, and the fact that the fiction is able to deliver shocks with such frequency is testament to the quality of the story-telling on display.

If you like purely narrative games, The Invisible Hours is among the most honest and fascinating. The charisma of some of the characters is its main strength.

It may only take a couple of hours at most to experience everything that The Invisible Hours has to offer, but it's a couple of hours well worth investing.
