Time to strap on your adult diaper (Nappie for those in the UK) and jump into the latest VR horror game. Developer VRWERX has released their latest underwear filler named Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul on steam.
In Paranormal Activity, all you have is a flashlight as you explore what appears to be a quite average looking home in a woodsy neighborhood. Before long, you discover you’re not alone as you unravel the mystery of what may have occurred in this house and struggle to survive the terror that begins to hunt you.
Not surprisingly, the game is based on the popular Paranormal Activity film franchise and is built from the ground up for VR.
The game can be played either standing or Room Scale which is ideal for a horror game. The control system for moving around is good, yet not so good at the same time. You can freely walk through the environment using Room Scale combined with what the developer calls Immersive Movement Role-play System (IMRS).
Locomotion in the game is a combination of look and controller usage. The direction of where you walk is set by where you look in conjunction with pushing forward on the hand controller. Certainly, this is better that the typical teleportation feature which would frankly suck for this type of game. But, when I want to walk in one direction while looking at something else to my side, I cannot.
The entire game will last for about 5-10 hours depending on how long you explore each area. If you like horror games with suspenseful sound and settings, I can recommend grabbing this game. Just remember your adult diapers!
Pros for Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul
- Map Design
- Scary as Sh**
Cons for Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul
- Locomotion. I debated this as being a con since I do not get nausea in VR. Teleportation VR is crappy for me so this is better. But, I would like to be able to look and walk in a different direction. Especially given this is room scale.
- Game lasts only 5-10 hours for a $39 game.
Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with a 15% discount till March 21 on steam, reducing the price from $39.99 to $33.99.
