Traveling through a haunted house always makes for interesting and heart-stopping gameplay if done right. But add in the twist of the main character being blind, using echolocation to unravel the mystery, and you have the makings of a real nailbiter.

Developer The Deep End Games has been working on its first title, Perception, for more than a year now. The game was originally announced for PC and PS4, but the studio has now revealed that it will be coming to Xbox One as well. The hook to Perception is that the player is a blind woman named Cassie who visits a house that is haunted. She needs to use echolocation ability (and a smartphone) to travel around the mansion and its grounds to unravel the mystery and stay alive. It is being developed using Unreal Engine 4.

The teaser below was just released for the Xbox One reveal, while the trailer below that is a bit older, but with more gameplay - and heartpumping action. The Deep End Games gathered more than $168,000 from a Kickstarter campaign to kick off development in June 2015. The team is comprised of members who have worked on such games a BioShock, Bioshock Infinite and Dead Space.

There is no official release date for the game, but the Xbox One announcement says "soon."

"Of course we want to bring you the game sooner rather than later," the team said in a December update to backers. "But we also need to make sure that it’s the game that we envisioned from the start. We’re getting there, but our work is not done yet. As soon as we are able to hone in on an exact date we’ll share more details on release timing."
