Night Terrors is new mobile app which promises to bring horror straight into your living room using augmented reality technology.
Their original Kickstarter in March 2015 described it as:
“A photorealistic, ultra immersive gaming experience that transforms your home into a terrifying, unfamiliar hellscape.
Night Terrors is a highly immersive, photorealistic, binaural, augmented reality survival horror game for mobile devices. Gameplay takes place at home, after dark, with the lights off and your headphones on.
The game controls what you see, what you hear, and where you go. Your device’s LED is all the light you get. The camera and microphone feeds are analyzed and processed in real time. Photorealistic elements are added to the camera feed. Audio is spatialized, mixed with the microphone feed, and then routed to the headphones delivering an immersive binaural audio experience.“
While the Kickstarter campaign was unsuccessful, the team were able to raise funds through alternative crowdfunding and now the game is set to launch on mobile devices this Hallowe’en for $5.99.
