We’re pretty excited for the Oculus Rift, and a new horror game demo, Dreadhalls, has been making the rounds for the virtual reality device. It first caught my attention with the above video (skip to about 3 minutes in if you want to get right to the scares) and it only made the wait for the Oculus a lot longer for me. After all, we’ve been deep diving into a number of horror games recently and the promise of being completely immersed into one of those environments is exactly what I’m looking for.
That isn’t to say that I’m confident I’ll be able to handle it any better than the guy in the video or Ben Kuchera at The Penny Arcade Report who was almost broken by the system. One terrifying discovery within the Oculus Rift may be all any of us can take, but that one time is looking to be a must-have experience.
