The developer for not too long ago launched Lovecraftian horror recreation, The Shore, confirmed VR help is on the best way with “additional stuff” not within the flat model.
One of many recreation’s builders responded in a Steam discussion thread earlier this month confirming plans for VR help with a “Yep no worries” and occurring to say “VR will probably be totally different it is going to embody many occasions from the standar [sic] launch however may also embody additional stuff.”
Right here’s the Steam web page abstract:
“THE SHORE is a recreation concerning the thriller of the unknown, set on a forbidden island full of horrors. Primarily based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, the story options a lot of his best-known creations and extra. Gamers will see the world by means of the eyes of Andrew, a father seeking his misplaced daughter.
Gamers will expertise The Shore by means of immersive, atmospheric gameplay and encounter probably the most nightmarish Lovecraftian entities, all whereas fixing mind-bending puzzles. Attempt to survive as Andrew as he endeavors to avoid wasting his daughter’s life and, maybe, uncovering the secrets and techniques lurking inside his personal sanity.”
Primarily based on that description, adapting this for VR looks as if a no brainer. That being stated, all of it seems like fairly normal Lovecraft stuff however it definitely seems fairly:
Should you’re into this kind of fiction, I extremely suggest trying out Edge of Nowhere in VR.
The sport simply launched yesterday and is at the moment sitting with a ‘Combined’ person overview common, however plenty of horror content material is hit-or-miss with individuals. I do know loads of horror video games that didn’t actually land for me that properly (like the most recent Amnesia) that others love and lots extra that heaps didn’t like a lot (like The Medium) that I liked. It’s a divisive style for apparent causes.
However one factor’s sure: put a horror recreation in VR and it robotically turns into higher general, assuming the VR help is completed properly.
