Horror Experience Chair in a Room Comes to Google Cardboard

All the way back in May 2014 VRFocus reported on the release of a new horror-based virtual reality (VR) experience from indie developer Ryan Bousfield named Chair in a Room for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) on the official Oculus VR Share Beta. This month that same experience has made its way over to the Android mobile operating system (OS) as one of a handful of new experiences to support the Google Cardboard smartphone-based HMD.


Chair in a Room is a simple horror experience in which players will find themselves in a room. Looking around the dank environment, it’s not long before the lights start to flicker and viewers find themselves in an increasingly terrifying situation. There are no other controls or mechanics; this is simply an experience that’s meant to convey the potential for the horror genre in VR, which has already proved popular throughout the course of 2014.

The experience is currently free to download on Android and will work with a range of smartphone-based HMDs as opposed to just Cardboard. VRFocus will continue to follow all VR videogames and experiences across every type of HMD, bringing you the latest on them.
