I should probably qualify that with a “so far,” since there’s still plenty of time for creative developers to find interesting ways to use the Oculus Rift VR headset, but of the handful of horror games I’ve seen, Alone is by far the most exciting. It’s innovative in its use of the Oculus Rift, because it’s essentially a horror game within a horror game (horror game-ception). In it, you’re controlling a character who’s playing a video game in their house, alone at night.
It doesn’t take long for crazy, Paranormal Activity style things start happening to your character, and because you’re immersed in the character who’s playing the game, the scares that start occurring outside of the game (within the game) are more effective. It’s a little difficult to explain, so thankfully, you can see it in action after the jump.
If you’re one of the few lucky owners of an Oculus Rift — and an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 controller — you can grab the demo here.
