Seance: The Unquiet (Preview) is a demo VR game that creates the experience of being in a classic horror movie. This short demo features lush visuals and an interactive narrative that focuses on the way in which game characters respond to your character's gaze and position.

Plenty of atmosphere

Seance: The Unquiet (Preview) is far from a complete game. Instead, it's a short narrative experience that demonstrates the immersive potential of the main game. The environment, dialogue and voice acting all contribute to the gothic atmosphere, but the real strength of the demo is in the way the VR characters react. The characters make direct eye contact with you, but it can also be worthwhile turning your gaze onto the character who isn't speaking. You might observe a reaction such as a wink that tells you something about the character's personality or how they're feeling in the scene. It's more like interacting with living actors than with computer characters.

An intriguing demonstration

Seance: The Unquiet (Preview) is a compelling demonstration of a system that could create an atmospheric, immersive ghost story. It will be interesting to gamers fascinated by the creative potential of VR.
