There’s a handful of developers who are using virtual reality in some really cool ways right now. One example is a game called Don’t Let Go, which conjures most of the major phobias from spiders to a fear of the dark — no clowns! — and throws them at you in an attempt to get you to let go of the Control buttons on the keyboard. If virtual reality is a part of the exciting future of horror, I feel like The Corridor: On Behalf Of The Dead is one of a growing list of reasons to be excited about that.
The premise behind this game is fantastic, as it puts you in the mind of a suspected murderer. That alone has my full attention, as my imagination immediately starts racing, wondering what the mind of a killer is like. Your goal is to use an experimental program called the The Corridor to find out the truth. I imagine it won’t be as easy as it sounds.
The developer is currently seeking £37,500 on Kickstarter, and with just 23 days to go, they’re still woefully short of that goal. Get familiar with it in the video below.
If I had an Oculus Rift, I’d be all over this. It’s games like this that get me very excited for the possibilities that virtual reality offer developers, and particularly those who are working on horror games. For more on The Corridor, feel free to follow it on Steam Greenlight.
