About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The Inpatient is a horror game with psychological elements that casts the player in the role of a patient with amnesia. The game is set in the Blackwood Sanatorium, over 60 years prior to the Until Dawn.

The Inpatient is a horror VR game from Supermassive Games.

The game is set in the Blackwood Sanatorium, over 60 years prior to Until Dawn, and you take on the role of an amnesiac inpatient.

Deep immersion places you in the game, and you must find out who you are and why you're in the Sanatorium.

The game features a branching narrative and different endings, so every choice you make can drastically affect the way the game plays out.

Key Features:

  • Branching narrative: Choices and consequences are integral to the gameplay. Your life (and the lives of those around you), are dramatically affected by the decisions you make. 
  • Rich story/memories: The story isn't just about scares; you'll discover a rich backstory and uncover a conspiracy. Vivid flashback memories that you discover throughout the game are key to understanding why you are in the Sanatorium.
  • Deep immersion: This game puts YOU in the shoes of the main character.  Thanks to the inclusion of voice control, gender choice and a fully realized body model. When you look down, you see your legs, arms and hands — it feels like you are in the Sanatorium.
