At the beginning of the month Come Over Gaming revealed its virtual reality (VR) psychological horror DreamBack VR for PC VR headsets. Now the studio has announced the launch will take place in a couple of weeks.
DreamBack VR is designed to be a spine-chilling experience of psychological terror so there are no guns or action-style sequences. You’re stuck in a very creepy looking Victorian mansion with one goal, trying to find a way out with your trusty flashlight.
As an electrical engineer your firm was called to fix a broken electrical line at the Rickfford Mansion and you’re the lucky person assigned to repair it. The estate is old and abandoned (supposedly) but you soon find yourself in a nightmarish world. The story is told after the fact, where your character has lost their memories of that fateful night, suffering nightmares and hallucinations in the aftermath. Trying to make sense of it all you revive those memories through hypnosis, reliving them all over again.
With no combat to worry about all you need to do is brave the dark corridors of Rickfford Mansion, look for clues and solve puzzles.
Come Over Gaming wants to make DreamBack VR as scary as possible, employing dynamic lighting and harrowing audio and spatial sound effects.
Come Over Gaming will release DreamBack VR via Steam for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets on 10th June 2020. It’ll retail for $24.99 USD/€24.99 EUR with a launch discount of 10%.
