Virtual reality (VR) compatible horror experiences aren’t exactly in short supply, although never fail to terrify newcomers and veterans alike with the added immersion of head-mounted displays (HMD) such as the Oculus Rift. This week sees the launch of another such experience in Elevator Horror from indie developer Nifty Studios. This brief first-person experience uses the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2) to deliver the scares to those brave enough to try it.
As its name suggests, Elevator Horror pits players on a terrifying elevator ride. “Rifters will witness strange events on their elevator ride from the basement level of a building to the 16th floor,” the title’s description reads. “Will you make it to your destination alive? Only one way to find out…” Little other information about the experience has been revealed, although the developer does recommend using a pair of good headphones.
Elevator Horror can currently be downloaded for free over on the official Oculus VR Share Beta on PC. Mac and Linux support is yet to be confirmed, although the developer does intend to add support for the Oculus Rift’s first development kit (DK1) as well. The concept for the title is similar to that of 100 Floors Horror Elevator. VRFocus will continue to follow each and every application of VR, reporting back with all the latest updates.
