Back in March 2014 indie developer Proscenium launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for its virtual reality (VR) compatible horror title, Spectre. The campaign went on to be a success for the developer and today, just under eight months since its launch, Spectre has released a pre-release version on Steam’s Early Access system. The PC, Mac and Linux title can currently be picked up for £8.09 GBP and comes with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
Spectre is a first-person multiplayer experience in which a team of three human players team up to find and attack the Spectre, a monster controlled by another player that is able to lay traps and deceptions. Seekers will win the match by defeating the Spectre. A single-player mode also features in which a lone Seeker must endure the Spectre’s attack as they explore a mansion in search of a means of permanently dispatching the creature.
The title isn’t planning to stay in Early Access for long; Proscenium plans to launch Spectre in full before the end of the year. The full version of the title will include ‘significant additions and improvements’ such as more creatures and levels as well as improved visuals. The Early Access version is currently available with a 10% discount on the price of the full version. VRFocus will continue to follow Spectre leading up to its full release, reporting back with any further updates on the title.
