Dutch developer Creazn Studio and Soedesco Publishing announced that Dollhouse, the psycho-sexual thriller has officially launched on Steam and the PS4 for $29.99. The first-person horror game is set in a noir world that pairs a single-player story campaign with a competitive multiplayer component.
The story mode is centered around a detective named Marie attempting to unfold the mysteries within her own mind in order to discover the true cause of death of her daughter. The game features a no-restart feature and has maps that are procedurally generated each time you play, so there’s no real way to cheat the system.
You can, however, upgrade your character with active and passive abilities as you proceed further into the creepy world filled with killer dolls. The trailer hints at the game’s more sexually-charged nature and some of the environments and enemies you’ll be encountering along the way.
The game is rated ‘M’ for Mature for containing partial nudity, strong language, strong sexual content, and violence.
I’m a little curious how Sony let this game slip by their radar with its strong sexual content from an indie dev, but they’re overly cautious about all-ages visual novels showing cleavage or belly buttons? Did the “censorship officer” at Sony just give this game a pass or did they just not consider it that big a deal?
Then again, trying to figure out Sony’s censorship policies is like trying to figure out how many different genders Google and Facebook have added to their profile settings; it’ll leave you perpetually dazed and confused. But I digress.
In addition to the game’s story mode where you attempt to figure out what’s bothering Marie, you’ll also have a multiplayer component to dive into. The PvP mode allows you to play as 14 different characters, and you’re assigned different targets in your quest to win, very similar to the competitive multiplayer in the old Assassin’s Creed games.
You can grab a copy of the game right now from over on the Steam store.
