Try-It Tuesday: UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD

My husband got UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD back when he got the PSVR, but we’d forgotten all about it until I found it the other day, still wrapped in plastic. Such serendipity! The perfect game for a Halloween Try-It Tuesday!

Warning: Turn down your volume, I’m a screamer.

This is an arcade survival horror first-person shooter, developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment in October 2016. In this spin-off of Until Dawn (which I haven’t played) you ride a twisted roller coaster through a cheesy carnival-style haunted house while shooting at creepy objects and even creepier enemies.

Virtual reality is super cool and I wish the PSVR didn’t make me nauseous and give me a headache. As games go, this was an incredible experience. Really well done. Takes first-person-shooter to a whole new level.

But I don’t usually play horror games, so this was extremely outside of my comfort zone. I don’t mind spooky stuff. I don’t even mind violence. I’ve seen the movies Crimson Peak and Stonehearst Asylum, and every episode of Hemlock Grove and Penny Dreadful. But I don’t like the serial killer clown kind of horror, so I won’t be playing any more of UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD any time soon.

I watched my husband play the second level, which featured a pig slaughterhouse and a pornographic dollhouse. He wore the VR headset and I watched the TV screen. Much better for my blood pressure that way.
