The winner of Next Generation Game Contents in 2018 Korea’s Game Award, The Haunted House VR Ep.1” is Now Public on Steam
It’s a piece of great news for Haunted House Experience game users! AIXLAB, VR, and video content producer have hinted about the release of its VR haunted house experience titled “Haunted VR Game Ep.1 Kyungbuk, Youngdeok.
An offline version of “Haunted House VR Game Ep. 1” was supplied in Korea’s LBE (Location-based Entertainment) market. Users have screamed in both international and domestic experience centers, and the game has received positive reviews from the audience. The VR game released on Steam stays more faithful to the original plan, with many elements to arouse the user’s fear. Its value was proved when it won the Next-Generation Game Content in Korea Games held in November 2018. But the service is limited because the offline market limits the experience to a short amount of time.
The game depicts one of the three major haunted houses in Korea located at Yeongdeok in North Gyeongsang Province. It attracted a lot of attention as it lets users enjoy a VR experience of a haunted house that everyone wants to visit but not courageous enough to actually go. In addition to its realistic graphics, the game stands out because unlike its competitors, it lets users lift objects in their surroundings.
After the first episode, the series will be followed by VR videos on connected attraction simulators, selective VR movies, and the second episode. The VR package will be an omniverse plot where an investigation takes place to uncover the mystery behind suspicious organizations and victims left behind the haunted house will spread across 3 episodes with 9 contents.
Hwang Kwab Hwan, the CEO of AIXLAB, led the development of a haunted house VR project. He said that unlike any typical gaming companies, they are designers who think about content to attract users and let them immerse themselves in the content. Although small, the goal is to create its own color and value. In a way, Hwang is confident that Haunted House VR would allow users to immerse themselves into an element of fear.
The pricing is $4.99(North America) on Steam. The full version is still in development with the target release in January 2020.
