Do Not Open
A new VR horror title, Do Not Open, has been announced and Do Not Open aims to take us down a dark escape room bit of fun in VR next year
Horror is taking another form in VR, as we have the announcement for Do Not Open coming to the PSVR hardware next year. Yes, this is going to be an exclusive right now as this is coming from Quasar Dynamics as part of the PlayStation Talent initiative after they have aided in another fun title in the past. I am all about that and possibly getting some advancement in our games and Do Not Open looks like it could do some fun for the VR realm as well. Something that feels like it was made for horror but has been relegated to various little experiences more than anything.
In Do Not Open, we will be taking on the role of Michael J. Goreng, a well-known zoologist and epidemiologist, trapped in his own house where his wife and daughter are held against their will by a supernatural being. We will then need to move about the house and solve puzzles to help free them all and possibly get a truly happy ending. Something that can be shifted based on the play with Do Not Open boasting that it will be varied each time and house multiple endings. I know I am interested to see how this will all pan out and how many will be able to make it through if this trailer is anything to go by for the final gameplay. Have a look.
