It’s been a little while since we last had the pants scared off of us in VR, but Rise of Insanity looks like it will answer that call quite nicely later this week.
This first-person horror series from Red Limb Studio is leaving Early Access this week and looks like it could be worth the time for any horror fans out there. In the game, you play as a doctor of psychology that explores the human mind falling a family tragedy. Set in the 1970s, you venture into locations inspired by North American architectural trends of the time, solving puzzles and overcoming the terror.
The game’s move to full release will see new locations added to the story, which is inspired by classic horror movies such as The Shining as well as games like Silent Hill. Instead of monster closets, then, expect deeper, more disturbing scares.
Rise of Insanity has optional support for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, though is played with either a gamepad or keyboard and mouse instead of each headset’s respective motion controllers. It’s got a ‘Very Positive’ average user-review rating on Steam, though, so don’t let that put you off if you’re interested in checking this one out.
