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.

    This is why i love following you guys, I’d never heard of this damn unique game otherwise!

  • Piotr Wojtan

    This is great news. I supported them just to play the Demo and I love it. Now we all can get VR support (some levels at least)! That will be blast !

      I’ve seen this game before and thought “Meh, no VR support!” now I realized it’s going to get it and just baked it as well. :) I really just hope it’s not going to be teleport again. If it’s teleport only I can play it on my screen at least and still enjoy the awesome art work.

    Not interested in a game that brings only one level to vr. Either commit to vr or leave it alone.

    I don’t play non-vr games so the bulk of the game will be useless for me.

  • Love horror in VR, this is a great news

  • yag

    the gameplay looks unoriginal and boring, tho

    • Piotr Wojtan

      You understand that this is Tech Demo ?
      They made it for Kickstarter – to promote theirs vision of the game.

      • yag

        well if you backed it, you should worry then

        • Piotr Wojtan

          I support them because I`m rich – so you know I don`t care about anything and I have nothing to worry about.

          • Get Schwifty!

            Great rationale for providing your money and support there Piotr… classy too.

    7 years later: Dev took the Kickstarter money but doesn’t put out the VR content that was promised in the Kickstarter stretch goals (which they met and exceeded). Scummery!
