    Shrouded in intrigue and darkness, psychological virtual reality thriller Blind is now available for players to uncover its secrets on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC VIVE, and Open Source Virtual Reality. From developer Tiny Bull Studios and indie label Fellow Traveller (previously Surprise Attack Games), Blind offers hair-raising gameplay filled with challenging puzzles and exploration of the unknown.

    In Blind, players awake as Jean, a young woman who finds herself in a strange room with a hazy memory and loss of sight. Led by the voice of the mysterious and unsettling Warden, the player uses echolocation to briefly reveal the outlines of objects, navigate the eerie mansion, solve puzzles, and uncover the mystery of Jean’s past. Approaching the truth, however, Jean will be forced to confront her worst enemy – that which she does not, or will not, see.

    "Point of view is integral to the first-person gaming experience, since players need to feel like they’re accurately observing and living in the world around their character," said Matteo Lana, CEO of Tiny Bull Studios. "A lot of first-person games can operate on an 'out of sight, out of mind' approach to the environment, but this wasn’t the case for Blind. Since the fundamental core of our game is based on redefining the player’s sight, we focused on creating an environment where players really get to engage with and keep tabs on their surroundings, becoming familiar with the mansion as they would with their own home."

    Blind is available now digitally for $24.99 on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC VIVE, and Open Source Virtual Reality. A retail version, published by Perp Games, will become available in Europe beginning September 28, with a North American release date to follow shortly.

    Publisher Mastiff and Bangkok-based developer Yggdrazil Group announced the survival horror game, Home Sweet Home, will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 9 as a digital release. A retail release will launch exclusives at GameStop in North America on October 16.


    Here is an overview of the game:

    The first in a series of terrifying first-person horror games, Home Sweet Home throws players into a dark and twisted labyrinth, where a miasma of fear fills the air, dread bleeds through cracks in the ceiling and seeps down through broken floorboards, and anxiety grows stronger with every step.

    After a long night filled with mourning and sorrow over the recent disappearance of his wife, Tim awakens to find himself in a strange, dilapidated building instead of the comfort of his own home. Naturally confused, he desperately begins to search for a way out while attempting to solve questions that could lead to answers regarding his wife’s disappearance. At the same time, he’ll find himself being hunted by malevolent spirits.
    There is a dark and sinister secret casting a shadow over this interconnected labyrinth…and without question, it’s no longer the happy home that it once was.

    Key Features:

    • Gripping Thai Horror – A dark narrative inspired by Thai lore, myths, and beliefs that will captivate players while keeping their palms sweating and pulses pounding with fear
    • Sharpen Wits, Not Blades – Without weapons to provide defense against the evil spirits, players must keep their wits sharp at all times in order to survive
    • Nicely Tied Together – The use of stealth and investigative skills offers gameplay variety and a chance for players to breathe, but not for long….
    • Face Your Fears – Experience a new level of first-person fear and terror with PS®VR compatibility

     A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012.
