It’s Halloween, time for costumes covered in too much fake blood and sweets that look like body parts. If you’re after a good scare then check out VRFocus’ ‘Best VR Horror Games to Scare Yourself This Halloween‘ list, packed full of ways to frighten yourself and others today. Or if you’re not interested in buying a new virtual reality (VR) title, then how about entering VRFocus’ Friday competition to win Sinister Halloween on Steam.
Created by Celeritas Games, Sinister Halloween is a single-player adventure dedicated to this spooky night. The story takes place in Mountain Peaks, a town which loves to get into the spirit of the occasion, jack-o-lanterns everywhere and every house given a frightening makeover. You play a local resident out doing a bit of trick or treating, unaware that somewhere in the town dark magic was being used, summoning all sorts of horrors in the process.
Released onto Steam Early Access this week, you need to fight all sorts of abominations to stay alive search locations for useful items, weapons to defend yourself and clues to what’s actually happened. The EA version features five levels currently; Forest, Barn, Abandoned House, Cemetery and Exterior Manor, offering around 3 to 4 hours of gameplay.
During Early Access development the studio plans on adding more areas; Haunted Manor Interior Finale, Haunted Luxury Mansion, Slaughter House and Complete Town Map. New enemies such as Reaper, Mummy, Haunted Trees and Ghostly Spirit will be included, plus an axe, Holy Cross to fend off enemies and a shotgun. Alongside the story campaign, a Horde Survival mode is also coming.
