Don’t Look Back: Horror in Virtual Reality Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Don’t Look Back is a VR (virtual reality) application which simulates the experience of an office worker being menaced by a supernatural entity. The approach of this visually elusive presence from behind the player’s seat is signaled by environmental cues. Attempts to look directly at the entity make it disappear. The player’s virtual sanity depends on maintaining a balance between their mundane work responsibilities and their anxious curiosity about the advancing horror. The application was built using the Unity engine and XR framework plugin. Playtesting suggested a need for additional design refinement.
