    Interesting tale from the crypt of game development

    Or maybe level design.. or perhaps me just dicking off. It's up in the air atm.

    Anyways, designing a psychological horror game that will implement both the oculus rift and the razer hydra. No npc's.. its just you in the game.

    A bit of background on it - the character height is 6ft. The ceiling height is 8 ft. Width of each passage is 3 feet. Since it's in early design phase, the flashlight (which will be controlled with the hydra) is just a spotlight in front of the player (early test build - not even in alpha yet).

    So far, it has 2 floors (out of the 250+ I'm planning), and is a maze-type dungeon. Background white-noise from a generator sound effects file and footsteps are the only sound effects so far.

    So last night, after getting to bed late / early this morning for a 1.5 hour nap before work.. I had a damn nightmare that I was in the game being chased around by one of those nurses from Silent Hill.

    Maybe the idea / gameplay will actually catch on? And that was just using a monitor (not a VR HMD).. the claustrophobia effect would be hugely enhanced with that + the hydra....

    I hope I don't fall asleep at the wheel otw home in an hour

    I'm not a gamer but I saw a game once that sounded similar except you were outside in the woods and could only see what your light shined on
    I may or may not be laughing at you.

    I once payed Sonic the hedgehog on a Sega with my step son... nothing since... I am of no use to you! Oh, I did finish the Leather Goddesses of Phobos on Infocom once, but that was a text game, using a lot of imagination
    It's all Here. Now.

    OK, Slenderman, sounds about right to me.

    The kids were here last night, I should've had them read the OP and decipher it for me.

    FWIW, I missed both the video generation and the BMX generation. Just not things I ever did.
    I may or may not be laughing at you.

    Well, the translation is basically:

    I'm developing a game that involves the player being in a maze of 50-250+ levels, with only a flashlight to help him navigate the maze. Then I had a nightmare that I was the one in the maze.

    basically.
