Scorn – Part 1 of 2: Dasein, the crowdfunded first-person horror game, just passed the €175,000 mark with only a few remaining hours in its Kickstarter campaign, meaning the developers will be including “an immersive VR level for the ultimate experience of the world and atmosphere of Scorn.”
While we were personally hoping for more than just a VR level in what’s shaping up to be a nightmarish, Alien-inspired first-person horror adventure – with the way things are looking from the trailer, we may not need one (for the sake of dry underwear everywhere).
Currently in the works by Serbian studio Ebb Software, the full game aims to throw you into a hellish world, wandering isolated and lost as you explore different interconnected, nonlinear.
According to Ebb, “throughout the game, you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, and various items, while trying to comprehend the sights presented to you. We want to create a broad gameplay experience that is more than a simple blend of all the game mechanics. You will constantly be required to re-think and adapt your actions.”
Originally asking €150,000, the project reached its initial funding goal late last month. Digital copies of the game, along with a host of goodies, are set to ship sometime in October. The first funding tier, including the game, is still available for €17, but it isn’t certain if the VR level will be delivered alongside the game, or added at a later date.
Since this is a PC title, it’s safe to assume the VR level will be intended for SteamVR headsets, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headsets. Any way you slice it, we’re just hoping we can get our hands on one of those ridiculous bone guns.
