PsyHotel Simulator, a game that constitutes a crazy mix of genres, will launch on PC in Q1 2021 – Ultimate Games S.A. has announced. The release will combine, among others, tactical and stealth elements, hotel management and black comedy. The player's goal will be to eliminate psychopathic criminals hosted at his establishment. The game will also be released on Nintendo Switch and probably on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
PsyHotel Simulator is a new project by the independent Polish studio RG Crew, which is also working on the psychological horror Anthology of Fear. The game will be published by Ultimate Games S.A.
As the developers explain, PsyHotel Simulator is an unusual project – a mix of many different genres and a reversal of various mechanics known from other games. The player will step into the shoes of The Boss, a contract assassin who also runs a hotel. It just so happens that the usual clients of this centre are various shady characters. However, the goal of the game will not be to properly see to the needs of the clients – like in typical tycoon games – but rather to eliminate them.
“The Boss is one part Hitman, one part Dexter Morgan. He's certainly an unconventional and unusual character. The hotel we will manage is something completely unique. Our inspirations include hotels known from The Shining and the John Wick movies, but also Arkham, known from the Batman universe" – says RG Crew's main programmer, Piotr Rycąbel.
In PsyHotel Simulator, the player will be managing the hotel and carrying out orders involving the liquidation of specific guests. The developers indicate that it is best to get to know the background and the habits of the target, before carefully planning out their termination.
“We will provide a lot of freedom in our game. You will be able to eliminate targets almost openly, but you might as well set a sophisticated trap or make it all look like an unfortunate accident. The game will also feature, among others, a simple crafting system and a wide range of possibilities of expanding and modernising your crazy hotel” – adds Piotr Rycąbel.
In addition to the main career mode, the developers will also offer the possibility to play single missions (without the hotel expansion elements).
