Description: This original story, based on the mythology of the massively popular PARANORMAL ACTIVITY film franchise, features our proprietary scare engine allowing a different experience every time you dare to play. Armed with a battery hungry flashlight, you find yourself exploring what appears to be a quiet average looking home in a woodsy neighbourhood. Before long, you discover you’re not alone as you discover the clues unravelling the horrifying mystery of what’s gone on in this house and struggle to survive the terror that hunts you.
For an even more terrifying experience, switch to the highly popular VR Mode which immerses you in the environment using minimum Room Scale combined with our Immersive Movement Role-play System (IMRS). After the tutorial, you’re on your own. Zero onscreen directions or HUD in your face, you’re never taken out of the immersion.
Review: Like most horror games in VR Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is a pretty scary game and there are more than a few good jump-scares for those who enjoy them. I will even go so far as to say it looks pretty good and stood still you can easily become immersed in its dark world. Sadly it is the movement that is one of the two biggest issues with this game, it feels cumbersome and unnatural, even nauseating at times! The other issue is that there is only a few hours gameplay here and I found myself finishing it within just 4 hours and that means I paid £5 per hour which is not good. But do consider catching it in a sale because it is still a horror experience worth downloading.
