The announcement comes after the developer revealed that the console versions of the title would be delayed by one week. Deep End Games said that the delay was due to an unexpected administrative problem.

Perception is a first-person horror game. You take control of a blind heroine named Cassie, who has nightmares about a house in the woods. After some investigating by Cassie, she deduces that the house is an abandoned mansion in Michigan called Echo Bluff. Because the main character is blind, players need to tap Cassie’s cane, which will create a visual on screen of everything that’s around you, but only for a second. The more the player taps, the more the player will see, however, at the same time, the more attention from enemies you’ll get.
Deep End Games is made up of for developers from the original Bioshock, its sequel Bioshock: Infinite, and the original Dead Space.
The PC version of the title launched on May 30th, 2017. You can check out the launch trailer that was released last week below. Recently we interviewed the developer about the game, where they talked about the inspiration behind the title, as well as its unique gameplay. Perception began as a Kickstarter campaign in 2015, and since then it has garnered 4,357 backers, and has raised $168,041
