Review: Stifled – Echolocation Horror Mystery is an adventure/horror game in which you play the role of a blind person using echolocation to find your way around. But don’t let this game fool you, audio is not your friend here, in fact, it is your worse nightmare. Playing in VR you use your built-in microphone to make a sound so you can see, but making sound attracts monsters so you want to see, but don’t want to make a sound which means you can’t see. While it doesn’t make the best use of VR it was still pretty immersive. I’m not sure it was worth the £15.49 asking price, but it is well worth a look. So maybe wait for a sale before grabbing this one.
