Hunt or be hunted in the new 4v1 horror-themed game

Seattle, WA – August 18, 2023 – Rec Room, the ​​leading virtual world, games and user-generated content platform announced the eagerly awaited release of their newest Rec Room Original – Make it to Midnight: a spine-chilling 4v1 horror-themed game. Set in the abandoned Rec County Fairground, players will either choose to be a survivor and work with others to power up generators and escape or become Bonky the Clown, hunting others. Players will experience intense thrills while progressing by unlocking perks and outsmarting opponents. 

Built using Rec Room Studio, the same creation suite available to the Rec Room Community, this new addition to the Rec Room Original series promises to deliver an unforgettable experience while also introducing new tools for creators from progression systems to enhanced gameplay features.

“At Rec Room, developing original content like Make it to Midnight allows us to focus on delivering exciting new capabilities for our creators,” said Morgan Tucker, Head of User Generated Content at Rec Room. “Our goal is for these tools to abstract away complexity and let our community do what they do best – imagine and create. This expansion reflects our commitment to empowering creators with tools that let them push the boundaries of immersive, cross-platform game development.

A Platform for Unleashing Creativity: Enhanced Interactions and Movement Tools

Make it to Midnight grants creators improved interaction and movement tools, enabling them to craft more compelling melee mechanics, specifically for players on screen and touch platforms. Additionally, creators can now fine-tune players’ locomotion parameters, including speed, stamina, and jump distance, allowing them to truly customize gameplay to their unique vision.

Unraveling the Mystery: Progression System

Make it to Midnight will lead the charge as the first room to introduce a comprehensive session-to-session progression system. This feature rewards players with incentives for increased engagement and dedication. As the terror unfolds with each playthrough, players’ persistence and skill will be recognized and rewarded, enhancing the thrill of the game. Moreover, creators across the Rec Room ecosystem can seamlessly integrate this progression system into their own creations, elevating their rooms to new heights of excitement.

Envisioning Nightmares: Heads-Up Displays (HUD)

At the heart of most screen and mobile games, the heads-up display (HUD) plays a pivotal role in keeping players informed and immersed. Make it to Midnight empowers creators to take control of this vital component, allowing them to show essential game information, with customized statistics, icons, and inventory.

Make it to Midnight is now available in Rec Room and can be played on all platforms.
