Your home is a safe place, somewhere to relax and rejuvenate. At least, it was.
Augmented reality survival horror game Night Terrors transforms your house into a terrifying hellscape.
After an unsuccessful run on Kickstarter, the team is trying for crowd-funding gold on Indiegogo. “Our aim is to create the scariest game ever made,” the project page says.
Described as a highly immersive, photorealistic, and binaural mobile experience, the game brings the action to you, mapping your environment in real timewith a few surprises along the way.
“Gameplay is deceptively simple,” the creators said. You have two tasks: Save the girl and survive. “Figuring out how you’ll do that is the real challenge. Hint: It doesn’t involve sitting on your couch.“
With more than $11,860 in the bank, and 39 days to raise $70,000, developer Novum Analytics is hoping to scare people into contributing.
A measly $5 will get you a thank you note and a copy of the game upon release. Pony up $10 for behind-the-scenes access and a say in the direction of the final product; for $25, the in-game characters will address you by name.
Looking for your big acting break? Spent $150 and your face “will become the stuff of nightmares” in the game, or drop $300 to lend your voice to a demon. A donation of $500 or $750 lets you work with the developers on a specific scene or demon, respectively, to appear in the game. More pricey opportunities are also still available for the big spenders.
The crux of the project, however, is the technology used to make the experience seem real. Built on four major algorithms, Night Terrors uses every bit of your smartphone to provide a one-of-a-kind adventure.
But only on the iPhone, for now; early compatible platforms include iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, and 6 Plus. The creators, however, hope to expand Night Terrors to Android and Windows Phone devices, hardware and funding permitting.
