Alone – Playing a Horror Game Within a Virtual Reality Game

alone oculus rift ss 1

If you’ve been following the awesome virtual reality device – the Oculus Rift, you already know how many great things can be done with the device.

Today however, we have something new to show off, it’s literally a game you can play within an Oculus Rift game, titled Alone.

In Alone, you’re playing a horror game on a flat screen within a virtual house, shifting the focus from the real world to the digital world you’re playing the game in.

This provides for a pretty spooky experience, which you can see below, thanks to youtube user Tyler Hodder:

I recommend using headphones and turning the volume way, way up, so you can hear the things he’s hearing. If you want to check the game out, you can do so at Greenwood Games’ website.
