LOS ANGELES, October 19, 2016 — Spectral Illusions, makers of VR experiences Cyberphobia, The Séance, and Astral Domine announce the release of Ghost Town Mine Ride & Shootin’ Gallery, a new fully interactive Virtual Reality Horror Experience for the HTC Vive on October 28, 2016.
Explore an abandoned tourist attraction, test your shot at the Shootin’ Gallery and board the mine cart ride for a descent into hell. A thrilling new Horror Experience for the HTC Vive. Can you make it out alive? Ghost Town Mine ride is approximately a 25 minute, fully immersive experience. The player alternately moves freely and on rails as they explore the attraction and the disused mine below. Ghost Town Mine Ride was developed using the Unreal 4 engine and requires an HTC Vive headset and controllers to play.
Kerry McCarn-Ostir, Executive Producer, says, “Abandoned theme parks and roadside attractions have such an interesting look. It’s a place that embodied joy and fun, but, once they’ve sunk into disrepair, the creepiness oozes out. It’s an environment that can evoke a huge emotional response.”
“This is the first part of a larger story we have planned for future releases,” says Director/Developer Rob Ostir. “I’m pretty much obsessed with dark rides and haunted places in general and have always wanted to create a haunted mine themed experience. Virtual Reality is the perfect medium for that.”
Ghost Town Mine Ride will be released on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/459010/
