Today we are previewing another upcoming and very promising title for Virtual Reality, this time in the horror genre. Shattered Lights is a game that is coming out June of 2019 and is developed by a team of all-students, studying International Game Architecture and Design Programme. And the quality that they managed to reach for their project looks very impressive.
About the Game
Shattered Lights is a full roomscale based VR horror game that takes you down a what seems to be an abandoned underground medical facility. And you are armed with nothing but your own sanity and a flashlight. What is even more interesting about Shattered Lights is that the developers have implemented non-euclidean geometry which means that every step you take is purely physical and you will never have to use controllers to move around. By doing this you will be able to completely immerse yourself into the world and explore creepy and scary areas.
Graphics and Sound
What really impresses me about Shattered Lights is the quality of the graphics. Everything looks very realistic and is really fitting to the creepy atmosphere. That brings a lot of authenticity to the feel of the game. Combined together with even more fitting and scary sounds you really might find yourself questioning why you are playing a horror game that’s going to scare the life out of you when you can just be looking at puppies and kittens. At least that’s how I cure myself after I play a horror game.
Shattered Lights is going to be available on 11 of June, 2019 both for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. It is a free to play short indie horror for Virtual Reality and it is being published by the university in which the development team is studying – Breda University of Applied Sciences. If you feel like you need a bit of a fright in your life and pump up the adrenaline in your blood, you might want to keep an eye out for when Shattered Lights comes out. Check out their Steam Page and add them to your wishlist so that you don’t miss out.
