The game (original title Gerald’s Game) is a psycho- and scary thriller of Mike Flanagan, who celebrated its premiere as part of the Fantastic Fest on September 24, 2017, as well as concerned selected US cinemas on September 29, 2017. The film is based upon the game of Stephen King from 1992.
Counting among the first major publishers to have produced games in virtual reality, even if his interest in this market was subsequently very irregular, Ubisoft will use this format to design a game that will accompany Notre-Dame burns, feature film by Jean- Jacques Arnaud expected on March 16th in cinema.
As the Variety site reports, Ubisoft’s production will be Location-based, which means it will be available in specialized halls (Ubisoft speaks of 630 partners) and not distributed on domestic platforms. This one-hour Game escape will bear the same name as Path’s film and propose to players to put on the firefighters’ uniform in their fight against the fire that ravaged part of the cathedral on the night of April 15th 2019.
A monument that OSIsoft appreciates particularly since the publisher had already given 500,000 euros to participate in the reconstruction efforts of the building, not to forget to distribute his Assassin’s Creed Unity of 2014, episode in which the building. Had been carefully modeled. On September 10, 2020, Ubisoft had also published Notre-Dame de Paris: Journey Back in Time, a free virtual tour based on the reconstruction of the 18th century present in the game.
An attachment noticed by Path and Jean-Jacques Arnaud who then approached the beginning editor 2021 to make a short game accompanying the exit of the film. Come all Escape Game, these are riddles and cooperation with your teammates. The idea is to make a way in the cathedral to find relics and fight the fire, because you must save Notre-Dame before Time is elapsed, explains Deborah Papering, in charge of strategic partnerships at Ubisoft.
