“Weeping Doll arrives just in time for Halloween to bring a spooky psychological adventure to PlayStation VR gamers looking for a touch of the macabre,” said Alen Wu, business director at Oasis Games. “Step into a mansion filled with hidden tragedies and discover a story that unfolds as you solve its ghostly secrets.”
As the player, you will take on the first-person view of a maid in a Japanese family’s Victorian-style house trying to uncover the secrets within. By projecting their maid avatar in discrete steps to whatever spot they want to explore, adventure gamers bypass any potential VR-induced discomfort while still enjoying full freedom of movement. What makes this title great is that every object and sound plays a pivotal role in solving the overall mystery of the original family that lived there, so players will need to explore the mansion carefully. If you are a player with a deep enjoyment of puzzles will have plenty to test their skills as they unravel the dark secrets of the family’s past. Weeping Doll, which is developed using the Unreal 4 Engine, provides an immersive and chilling adventure that will send shivers down your spine—get ready to enter the mansion and face your fears!
I enjoy a good fright fest as much as the next person but I will say that I am really unsure of how I could handle some of the titles coming to VR at the moment. Personally, I find the old porcelain dolls horrific at the best of time but I if you are going to give this a go it is going to be time to grab those boy pants out prepare yourself.
