Paris, October 13, 2021 – Microids is pleased to reveal today the second developer's diary as we get closer to the release of the next title from Pendulo Studios (Runaway, Yesterday Origins, Blacksad: Under the Skin...), expected for December 16, 2021, on PC.

This dev diary goes into details about the creative process of the musical theme and the original soundtrack of the narrative game Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, freely inspired by the movie of the same name, by famous Director.

Juan Miguel Martin, composer who has worked on previous Pendulo Studios productions such as Runaway (2003) The Next Big Thing (2011), Yesterday (2012), Yesterday Origins (2016) and more recently Blacksad: Under the Skin in 2019, will sign his sixth musical work, with the precious help of twelve talented musicians with whom he has surrounded himself.

Through this new narrative experience, the melodies players will discover will be familiar and an attentive ear will recognize the work of Bernard Herrmann, from whom the game team drew inspiration. A composer who collaborated with Alfred Hitchcock on eight of his most famous films, including "Vertigo" (1956), "North by Northwest" (1957), "Psycho" (1960) and "The Birds" (1963), as well as other films by renowned directors such as Orson Welles' Citizen Kane (1941) and Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976).


Ed Miller, a writer, came out unscathed from his car crash down into Brody Canyon, California.
Even though no one was found inside the car wreckage, Ed insists that he was traveling with his wife and daughter. Traumatized by the event, he begins to suffer from severe vertigo. As he starts therapy, he will try to uncover what really happened on that tragic day.

Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo is being developed by Pendulo Studios (Runaway, Yesterday Origins, Blacksad: Under the Skin...) and will launch December 16th, 2021, on PC. The game will come out in 2022 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles and Nintendo Switch.

Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo is an invitation to discover more about this dizzy spell and its origins. The game is a true introspective experience that will challenge the players' own sense of sanity.
