You’d better have carved pumpkins and buckets of sweets at the ready because Halloween is right around the corner!
And to celebrate this terrifying annual tradition, Perp Games are getting in the spirit with some dark, spooky, and horror-filled gaming from their own catalogue.
Here are seven games, present and future, to really get you in the mood.
Please be aware, this video contains flashing images and viewer discretion is advised.
Tiny Bull’s virtual reality adventure in the dark requires the player to explore their surroundings using echolocation.
The world around you is unfamiliar, strange, and emotionally tense, but can also be unsettling and make you feel anxious as you try to solve the puzzles and avoid the dangers.
The noire aesthetic is unlike anything else in VR right now and the use of atmosphere to really drive the way you play makes for a truly unique experience.
Don’t Knock Twice
There’s also a BAFTA-nominated horror adventure from Wales Interactive based on an urban legend.
Players must explore a grand manor house with the ability to interact with everything they can see as you try to save your daughter from the horrors within.
One of VR’s original horror games but still one of the best, Don’t Knock Twice is atmospheric, intense and a guaranteed thrill ride for Halloween.
Maybe you prefer the classics. Forge Reply’s efforts to recreate the Greek legend of Theseus have made for an extremely tense VR thriller.
As you delve into the labyrinth and uncover its secrets, so you find yourself face to face with a terrifying minotaur, the voice of Ariadne serving as your only guide.
You’re certainly far from home and a very unwelcome visitor in this mature action adventure made for VR.
Perhaps you’d fancy a darker sci-fi mystery in the vein of Black Mirror and The Twilight Zone? Torn is your answer.
With its high profile writing and effects team, Torn is full of puzzles and machinations which can be manipulated using a neat gravity gun.
There are few games with the cinematic quality and production values of Torn and with the game just coming out to EU retailers this past Friday, there’s never been a better time to be part of the adventure.
We’ve got some incredible horror titles on the way, some arriving sooner than later. Here’s a roundup…
