Description: 100 years after the massacre at Huxley’s Mansion rumours swirl of unclaimed treasures waiting to be collected. But there are things the rumours don’t mention. The murderous ghosts who prowl the hallways waiting for your torch to dim… The wails of a grieving mother who begs you to help her son. And the madman at the centre of it all, William Huxley, whose inventions have left the mansion suspended somewhere between Earth and hell.
No Way Out: A Dead Realm Tale challenges you to solve puzzles, overcome ghosts and free yourself from Huxley’s grasp before it’s too late. This immersive VR experience provides a spine-tingling twist on the haunted house genre. Will you escape? Or will you become just another lost soul trapped forever in Huxley’s Mansion?
Review: To be honest with you, its pretty hard not to make a good horror game in VR because of how easily immersive the genre is. The good news is No Way Out – A Dead Realm Tale is no exception and it really does scare you half to death multiple times. The art of keeping the torch lite becomes second nature as the moment it goes out, you will need a clean pair of underpants. While I will say it doesn’t look as good as the trailer suggests the graphics to an adequate job of immersing you. But if you ask me that £15.49 price tag is just too much for this game given that you can easily finish it in under an hour. So do wait for a sale before making a purchase, but do keep an eye out for it, especially if you love your horror games.
