Description: KOBOLD is a new kind of horror experience that blurs the line between cinema and VR gaming. Step into the shoes of an urban explorer investigating the mysterious case of a missing boy. Pick up your flashlight and discover the secrets of an abandoned villa in the middle of a dark forest in Germany. Immerse yourself in true, cinematic realism, explore an interactive universe, pick up clues and dare to venture deeper into a mystical world where your actions can have grave consequences. With its intensely realistic visuals captured with photogrammetry, free movement and intuitive interactions, KOBOLD is a unique room scale VR experience that will entice and terrify…




Review: I will start with the bad news about ‘KOBOLD: Chapter I’ sadly this game is good…in fact…its very good. Why is that bad news? Because VR horror games are the worst and just by being in VR can ramp up the scare factor tenfold. This game is very scary indeed from the well-written storyline to the creepy, but super clear graphics, this game has all it needs to scare the pants off most people. While it is a little short for the price I feel you are paying for quality here rather than quantity, but it is a shame there aren’t more chapters to see how the story would have panned out.
