“Here it Lies,” a POV horror fest on virtual reality
PlayStation recently announced another exciting title coming out as a VR standalone called Here They Lie, a groundbreaking first-person horror game. The game puts players into the dark, bleak core of a city from which they cannot escape.
The nightmare is home to strange, malevolent creatures lurking in the dark, while the player must survive, take difficult moral choices and uncover the mystery of the woman in yellow.
The completely immersive gameplay the PSVR offers defies players to embody the character while roaming through eerie alleys from one jump-scare to another.
What’s more, the game makes great use of the 3D audio features of Sony’s VR gear. 3D audio alters sound based on the movement and direction of the players head. So he or she could hear a creaking window behind them, a sinister laughter above them, or a train going too fast beneath them.
