Dark Deception Launches Kickstarter, PS4 + Morpheus Version Teased

You may remember the name Dark Deception. The virtual reality (VR) compatible horror title launched a demo on the official Oculus VR Share Beta in early April 2014. Now developer Glowstick Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign in an attempt to fund the full title and bring it, at the very least, to PC, Mac and Linux with support for the Oculus Rift VR headset. The campaign hopes to raise $50,000 USD before 29th June 2014.


Dark Deception is described as a ‘Pac-Man style horror’ experience. Players tour a maze collecting purple shards as they’re pursued by horrific monsters. Enemies are unique in each and every level, with designs ranging from knife-wielding giant monkies to twisted to vicious, twisted clowns. The title’s story is written by Ghost Recon and End War Online writer Mike Lee, focussing on a police offier that’s on the run from his past.

It features voice work from Star Trek and Mass Effect‘s Carolyn Seymour, who plays a Hollywood actress tied connected to black magic that went missing in the 1930’s.

While the title’s initial goal is set at $50,000, a $65,000 stretch goal also teases support for the PlayStation 4 and the Project Morpheus VR headset along with it. Also teased is a PlayStation Vita version for $80,000, Xbox One for $170,000 and Wii U for $190,000. Those interested can pledge $10 USD to secure a digital copy of the title, which is set to arrive in December 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow Dark Deception‘s progress and report back with any more updates.
