VR horror game Affected: The Manor is out now on Oculus Quest many years after its initial launch.
The horror app was an early VR experience for Gear VR back in 2016. It is a short but effective game, if you could call it that. The developers, Fallen Planet Studio, designed Affected: The Manor so it “does not follow the traditional gaming blueprint of objective-based tasks and gamification elements; instead, its main aim is to scare.”
That lines up with our review of the original Gear VR version back in 2016. Affected: The Manor also launched for PlayStation VR last year, and is the first in a planned trilogy of games in the series. The sequels are still in development, according to a recent press release.
The Quest version includes a few updates to the original game including hand interactions and increased environmental interactions. The game assets have also been reworked for “a more seamless experience.” This “remastered version” is also supposed to launch on PSVR “in time for Christmas.” We’re not sure whether the remastered version will be a free update for existing owners of the game on PSVR, or a separate purchase — we’ll update this post if we clarify.
This isn’t the only classic VR horror game to come to the Quest lately either. Dreadhalls also launched a Quest version recently, meaning that the Quest now has two early VR horror titles as part of its ever-expanding library.
