This game messed with our head. At least I can say it’s well done. People said Penumbra: Overture in VR is the scariest VR game at the moment. So we went and tried that out. Well.. watch our reactions and gameplay here:
Bit of a warning though: we’re swearing a lot… I guess that’s how we cope with horrors :/
Penumbra: Overture is a first person survival horror game. It is more of a puzzle solving survival game than just mindless violence and gore. This game is amazing at building tension, the sound effects are freaking scary. So make sure to turn up your volume, if you’re into that. With this Virtual Reality mod, the experience is a lot more immersive. At the moment the only locomotion is with the touchpad, which makes us nauseaus quite fast, but the developer has said he is adding teleporting as well in the upcoming weeks. Also, at the moment there are some bugs further in the game, that he’ll fix in the same update. But don’t worry, if you suck at horror games like us, you’ll won’t progress fast enough 😛
It’s the way the game builds tension every step you make (those sound effects!), you feel like you’ll get a jumpscare every second. -.-” The majority of what we did was stand in a corner and be scared or unwilling to open a door, because we’re hearing sounds. Lol
For anyone interested in playing @14:22 of the video. We added a quick tut for the VR controls (it took us a bit to get used to 🙂 ).
Big thanks to the developer who made the mod, it’s awesome to be able to play classic games in VR! If you wanna try it out too, here are the links:
