The Shining-Inspired VR Horror Game Rise Of Insanity Comes To PSVR

The Shining-Inspired VR Horror Game Rise Of Insanity Comes To PSVR

Rise of Insanity is a first-person psychological horror game that originally released on PC last year in 2018 with SteamVR support that’s now out on PSVR.

It originally appeared in Early Access a year prior, but has been in a fully released state for quite some time. Today, Sony announced and released the horror game on PS4 with optional PSVR support. That’s right — it’s out already.

Rise of Insanity gets right to the point in its title. In its store description the developers at Red Limb Studios cite The Shining, The Exorcist, and Silent Hill as heavy influences, ensuring that this will appeal to fans of suspense and mystery.

The plot is explained as follows:

Set in America in the 1970s, the story centers around Dr. Stephen Dowell, a renowned psychologist faced with a difficult patient who shows distinct yet contradictory symptoms of different mental disorders. The life of the doctor himself is also shrouded in mystery – you must step into his shoes to find out the truth. 

What terrible fate has befallen your wife and child? Is your new patient, on whom you are testing your experimental treatment methods, somewhat responsible for what happened? Who is to blame? Don’t lose your nerve and overcome your fear.

Rise of Insanity is a Dualshock 4 only PSVR game, which means no PS Move support at all, which is similar to its PC release where only gamepad or mouse and keyboard support are listed. It’s only about two hours long and involves a heavy amount of walking and exploration — but only costs $12.99 on PS4 or $9.99 on PC.
