The Shore Is A Gorgeous Looking Lovecraftian Horror Game Getting VR Support With ‘Extra Stuff’

-

The developer for recently released Lovecraftian horror game, The Shore, confirmed VR support is on the way with “extra stuff” not in the flat version.

One of the game’s developers responded in a Steam discussion thread earlier this month confirming plans for VR support with a “Yep no worries” and going on to say “VR will be different it will include many events from the standar [sic] release but will also include extra stuff.”

Here’s the Steam page summary:

“THE SHORE is a game about the mystery of the unknown, set on a forbidden island filled with horrors. Based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, the story features many of his best-known creations and more. Players will see the world through the eyes of Andrew, a father in search of his lost daughter.

Players will experience The Shore through immersive, atmospheric gameplay and encounter the most nightmarish Lovecraftian entities, all while solving mind-bending puzzles. Try to survive as Andrew as he endeavors to save his daughter’s life and, perhaps, uncovering the secrets lurking within his own sanity.”

Based on that description, adapting this for VR seems like a no-brainer. That being said, it all sounds like pretty standard Lovecraft stuff but it certainly looks pretty:

If you’re into this type of fiction, I highly recommend checking out Edge of Nowhere in VR.

The game just released yesterday and is currently sitting with a ‘Mixed’ user review average, but lots of horror content is hit-or-miss with people. I know plenty of horror games that didn’t really land for me that well (like the latest Amnesia) that others love and plenty more that lots didn’t like much (like The Medium) that I loved. It’s a divisive genre for obvious reasons.

But one thing’s certain: put a horror game in VR and it automatically becomes better overall, assuming the VR support is done well.
