As far as horror classics go in VR, Affected: The Manor is as original as they get right now, and it’s finally arriving on one of the most popular platforms this week.
Developer Fallen Planet Studios confirmed that the game will launch on Sony’s headset tomorrow, 27th November with a limited-time half price discount (we don’t know the full price but it’s $7.99 on Steam).
Affected was one of the earliest apps to showcase what can be done with VR and horror. You explore a spooky manor house, choosing your own route through as you endure jump scares and creepy terrors. It’s not a ‘game’ as such as it’s very much on the short side and designed for anyone to be able to experience, but there are multiple endings based on your choices and it most certainly is not for the faint of heart.
It’s the first in a planned trilogy of VR horror games with the second installment, Affected: The Asylum currently in development. No word on its release just yet.
