Description: It is December, 1955. Your daughter has gone missing. Recurrent nightmares have been haunting your sleep, forcing a steady descent into madness. Your dreams bring about a variety of introspective, phobia-induced situations to wrestle with. And, something appears to be calling for you.. Downward…

This is the first chapter (Prelude) .. in a planned episodic story-driven adventure game in which you gradually uncover the mystery of your daughter’s disappearance and the nature of your soul. My goal here has been to invent an artistic style and feel that I have been wanting to experience myself in VR, and also to set the stage for a larger series. (This Prelude may or may not be “Canon” in the official chapters to follow.)

Review: Purgatory Fell is your classic VR horror game with a few good jump scares and loads of creepy sounds and atmosphere from start to finish. The good news is there are things in this game that you might not have seen before and while I won’t spoil them in this review all I can say is they do mix up the action a lot. The game as a whole looks really good and while it is nauseating with full forward motion and a few other nauseating things I didn’t feel too ill while playing it. Sadly there isn’t a whole lot of content here and I did find myself finishing the game in just over 42 minutes. So maybe £5.79 is asking a little too much for this, so I would wait for a sale before giving it a go, but if you like your horror games this is well worth a look.
