Gaming Highlights – April 2017

Don’t Knock Twice
Mon 10 April
VR version: Playstation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift
Non VR: Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC

Developed alongside the movie of the same name starring Katee Sackhoff, Don’t Knock Twice is based on an urban legend and sees a mother trying to save her estranged daughter.

In order to do so she must uncover the frightening truth behind the frightening tale of a vengeful, demonic witch. One knock to wake her from her bed, twice to raise her from the dead. Courageous players can explore a grand manor house (at your peril!) and interact with almost every object you see. To find and save your daughter, you will explore all depths of the manor, searching for hidden clues and using items to fight or escape the terror that surrounds you. Combining environment items to fight or escape the terror, the traditional manor environment is juxtaposed with modern technology to guide you, and there’s “atmospheric and high-quality 3D sound for an immersive horror experience.”

A demo is currently available on Steam for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
