Visage is a psychological horror videogame that took to Kickstarter to start up a crowdfunding campaign, which – quite clearly – did extremely well. Since its success back in March, the team had been working on the stretch goals, and vrtual reality (VR) was one of them.
The team has said that there would be a monthly update, and in this month’s update it is clear that this horror title will be making its way over to the virtual world. What Visage is all about is wandering through huge houses where terrible things have happened. Players will get lost in endless mazes, and the lives of the dead families who lived here before will haunt your mind.
The developers, SadSquare Studio, gave a pretty short but sweet description of what they had been working in in terms of VR for the title: “We’ve had our hands on most of the VR kits for a while now, and we’ve tried the game on both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
“Sadly enough, there aren’t any words to describe the feeling of being in the Visage house with VR on, so I’ll just keep it simple, it’s awesome. VR is going to redefine the boundaries of how scary a horror game can be, and I sincerely can’t wait to see new developers get on with it (there’s already Resident Evil 7 to look forward to).
It isn’t clear when exactly the title will be able to be released on either the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive head-mounted displays (HMD), but with each of the updates through the months it is sure to say that more developments will come to light.
