Imscared Oculus Rift

DoraWelcome to the beginning of our coverage on interesting indie funding projects (Kickstarter, IndieGoGo), Steam Greenlight games, and news and previews!

Platform: Windows
DRM: None
Developer: Ivan Zanotti
Genre: Horror Adventure
Planned Release: Unknown
Funding Asked: $500.00USD
Funding Ends: November 9th 2013

Ivan Zanotti's freeware indie horror game Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare was a huge hit when it released last year. It's hard to really say why without completely ruining it, but it managed to be downright harrowing despite its simplistic visuals and presented a highly unique (and often unsettling) twist on the concept of a haunting. If you haven't played it, you really should, and if you have, then the IndieGoGo campaign for the Oculus Rift compatible re-release of Imscared, including all-new content and the ability to be played by those of us without Oculus Rift, should get you really excited.

The $500.00USD funding will cover both the Oculus Rift development kit and the addition of all new levels that will "lengthen the game and make it more unique". I'm not sure how you could make a game like this more unique, as it's already spawned its share of imitators of its clever approach to horror. There's even a possibility of seeing a Mac port! Right now, the information on the official IndieGoGo page is actually a little bit vague, and it's unclear as to whether this will be another freeware title, and you won't get much besides the creeps out of the little 19 second video. But the promise of new content for one of indie gaming's freakiest darlings is pretty tempting, so head on over to learn more... or play the original free version!

JayisGames.com IndieGoGo picks are selected based only on personal evaluation and perceived overall quality of the project. We assume no responsibility for failed projects or developer's inability to deliver. Donate with care!

I'm definitely cheering for him, he's a talented developer. But I'm not sure about oculus rift support, I don't think this game would benefit from that at all, but I could be wrong.
