If you’re a fan of horror games and want to have a unique experience, then we have news for you. The Steam game Syren has officially released on Steam for SteamVR.
Syren is a horror game that starts with you waking up in a ruined underwater laboratory, which is starting to crumble under the pressure of the ocean. The whole place is failing and you have to get out quickly. The problem is that there’s something with you, something that isn’t human. Your objective is to escape the facility, all the while being sure to avoid the evil that lurks beneath the water.
The interesting bit is that it’s your creation that’s trying to get you. The player takes control of a scientist who intentionally built a submerged laboratory right above an ancient lost city in hopes of resurrecting an extinct species known as syren.
As in all good horror tales, your experiments get out and you must deal with them in the decaying laboratory as you make your way to freedom. The game uses a first-person perspective and has elements of stealth and survival mixed with puzzles. With VR you will be able to personally deal with all the dangers and puzzles that are put in front of you. Whether you survive or not, that’s on you.
Horror is one of the genres you could argue is perfect for VR. As the immersion of the headset will allow you to truly see and “feel” the darkness of the world. That, and the fact that the scares will feel more real because you’ll see them truly through your eyes.
