Affected - The Oculus Rift Horror Experience



In the world of VR, things can change fast. Companies come and go, demos  live and die.

Affected - The Cabin was reviewed back in February after an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign. Work did not stop however and continued on.

The original included just one level but now Fallen Planet Studios have added two more (The Manor, The Asylum and The Carnival)

Is it scary? Well, that depends. It takes a lot to scare me but I did have a few what I would call "underwear moments"
I'll let you be the judge of it. The performance however was excellent on the VRCircle test machine so you can expect smooth performance.

Game Description:

Affected offers a new level of immersion for gamers, heightened feelings of tension and more importantly, unprecedented levels of fear. The Oculus Rift has ushered in a new era in gaming and as a result, a new dimension in which to experience the ultimate in scare factors. There are no puzzles to solve, no coins to collect, just three nightmares for you to stumble through…but can you make it to the end in one piece!
