The number of virtual reality (VR) compatible horror experiences again grows this week, with the release of a brand new videogame onto the official Oculus VR Share Beta. Titled Horror Tribute, the experience is currently free to download on PC and comes with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset. Possible Mac and Linux versions of the title are yet to be confirmed.
Horror Tribute is another project from indie developer Tiago Alcantara, the same mind behind other Oculus VR Share titles such as Museum of Games the Dragon Ball Z experience. As the developer describe, Horror Tribute is a simple experience in which players sit in the middle of a living room and are subjected to a series of horrifying sites, with cameos from famous horror movies also thrown in.
As Alcantara reveals, Horror Tribute was created in the space of 48 hours using the Unity 4 engine. He reasons that it ‘may be a short experience’ but it boasts a ‘high level of realism’. It marks the second horror title to recently release on the Oculus VR Share platform, the other being Friday 13th Terrorthon, which is also a brief experience. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with any more updates on new releases and more.
