Stable Orbit developer Codalyn has announced its newest project. Privacy is an investigative thriller coming to PC via Steam in 2020. The game was originally teased back in March, but thanks to Codalyn we have some more details now.

In Privacy, you play as an investigator sent to the home of billionaire CEO Robert-Paul den Heer. Your task is to retrieve crucial research for his company Denheer Inc. Naturally, when you get to the house, things turn out to be a great deal more complicated than they initially seemed. Privacy boasts the involvement of voice actor Anthony Ingruber, who played The Joker in Batman: The Telltale Series. You can check out the teaser trailer for Privacy below:

While you're uncovering den Heer's secrets, you'll encounter a sinister AI called Hubert. The AI's voice comes courtesy of the aforementioned Anthony Ingruber. Codalyn describes Hubert as "a series 5 house AI" whose task is ostensibly to help you. The game's creator Jim Offerman says Hubert's voice radiates "unsettling calm", and that the AI will be able to "listen and respond" to everything you do during the course of the game.

 

We're not quite sure exactly what the gameplay in Privacy will look like. Codalyn says you'll be able to interact with every single object in den Heer's house as well as opening every drawer and door in every room. The studio also says Privacy is a narrative-focused game which will allow you to uncover the story at your own pace. It sounds like gameplay will be fairly minimalistic. If you're not great with your twitch reflexes this'll probably still be one you can enjoy.

Privacy launches for PC via Steam in 2020. No word on a specific release date yet, so stay tuned. In the meantime, you can wishlist it on Steam.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
