Description: Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean: Stranded on the seafloor with low light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out. This first-person survival story unfolds from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin.” Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.
Review: Narcosis would probably be a AAA title if it wasn’t so short. It looks great, the music is dark and eerie and the sound effects are also perfect. Throw that all into the horror style of the game and you have a very immersive experiance with some good jump scares (no the boo type, more the psychology scary type). I really did enjoy it and playing with the controller rather than the motion controls also felt good. But there is no way it is worth the £11.39 aksing price, but half of that would give you great value for money. When you get it for the right price this is a hidden VR gem in the steam store and I do highly recommend it, just don’t pay full whack for it.
