Description: This is a small indie survival rogue-like horror game based on the SCP foundation lore. My name is AlexTheCreator and I am the author of this game. I’m gonna quickly explain o you quickly what this is game about. The original SCP-087 story is based on an infinite stairwell. If you are SCP-fan like me, you might remember the first SCP-087 game which was just basically a walking simulator. It was unique when it first released, however, it isn’t that much now. Nowadays you can’t just enjoy a game where you walk down some stairs while getting scared by simplest jumpscares. Even in VR… Trust me, I made the first version of this game just like I’ve described above. Nothing special, very simple and not entertaining at all. So I have decided to turn the tables!
SCP-087 can have a huge effect on the subject’s mind… So now you are one of the SCP Scientists which, for unknown reasons, had gotten inside SCP-087. You start off by regaining consciousness and see different corridors in front of you. The setting is like a basement. You recall that something similar was written in one of the classified documents on SCP-087, and you understand that there is no other solution for you then begin looking for a way out. SCP-087 is afraid of light and noise, that’s why you’ll have to collect all the objects that can make noise, help craft torches, repair lamps and prevent SCP-087-01 from getting you. Your goal is to survive in a procedurally generated world filled with danger and loneliness.
Review: What most people playing this game won’t know is that the ‘SCP Foundation’ is a fictional organization documented by the web-based collaborative-fiction project of the same name. This short VR game is based on that work. So in short, it is a 20-minute horror style experience that sees you wandering about in the dark until something happens. You do hear the odd noise but that is about it. Paying £11.39 for this is just a joke and maybe I do need to be a fan of the other fiction project, but I am not and for me, this is WAY overpriced and kind of pointless. If this every becomes free maybe give it a look, but until then I would wait until the game gets a MASSIVE update.
