It seems we haven’t quite gotten our fill of things that make us want to rip our headsets off and run away last month. Because there’s still a steady stream of VR horror content being released during the holidays. One of these horrific releases is DreadEye VR from Digital Happiness, which releases for HTC Vive on Steam on November 28.
DreadEye VR is actually the third game in the Dreadout series, but it is the first one that supports virtual reality. In this game you get to play the role of an Indonesian shaman, or dukun, with the power to summon spirits. You’ll learn about crafting and combining different ingredients in ancient rituals that will allow you to commune with the dead and open gates to the spirit realm. Through which you’ll travel to an ominous dimension full of terror.
The game takes place in a rural area of Indonesia where superstitions and magic feel all too real. So don’t forget that this is just a game as the evil spirits try to slowly devour your soul. Why on earth did you summon them? Beats me. But if you want to defeat them then you’re going to have to solve terrifying puzzles, prepare rituals, and just try to endure the torment and ghosts lurking in the shadows. Just remember to use your flashlight!
DreadEye VR releases for HTC Vive tomorrow for $14.99 USD. Don’t worry about missing out if you own an Oculus Rift though, because the studio is planning on adding support for the Rift at a later date. There’s also a demo of the game available on Steam if you want to give the ghosts a test summoning before buying.
