VR scare-fest Don’t Knock Twice comes to Playstation

The virtual-reality horror movie tie-in was developed by Wales Interactive.

Looking to kick your Halloween shenanigans up to 11 this year? A new horror VR game from Wales Interactive might be for you.

Based on the horror film directed by Caradog W. James, Don’t Knock Twice tells the story of a mother who must find and save her daughter in the confines of a terrifying grand manor.

To save her estranged daughter, a guilt-ridden mother must uncover the frightening truth behind the urban tale of a vengeful, demonic witch. One knock to wake her from her bed, twice to raise her from the dead.

To find and save your daughter, you will explore all depths of a grand manor house, searching for hidden clues and wield items to escape the terror that surrounds you.

In a similar vein to first-person survival horrors like Amnesia and SOMA, the player is able to interact with most of the objects around them.

“Don’t Knock Twice is one scary game and we think horror fans will love this experience, especially in VR.”

Will I have the courage to give this a go in VR? Maybe. But it looks like a fun ride!
