Sometimes we like our horror games to be a little cleverer than a standard slasher zombie shooter and that’s what you get with ‘Insane decay of the mind’. For sure its got its scares but there’s also an interesting psychological background story to it.
You take the perspective of Katherine who has become lost in an eerie building. However Katherine isn’t exactly right in the head and she believe this building to be her old school. The labyrinth of rooms and corridors starts to unravel her mind. Her worst nightmares ‘Shadows’ start to manifest themselves until she can take no more and must find freedom through escape.
Of course the word ‘escape’ is easier said than done as there are many nasty entities looking to stop your escape … which you must avoid at all costs. In addition things to start to appear, flicker, disappear etc so you never know what’s really real or just a figment of your breaking imagination
Insanity VR horror
Overall the graphics of Insane decay of the mind work well. They aren’t as polished as some other FPS games we’ve played but the atmosphere the game builds up certainly makes up for it. The sound is also just as eerie and grating and works to create a well-rounded VR survival horror game.
Developed by IV productions this is one great indie-horror game that is sure to give you the creeps. You can play this without a virtual reality headset but to be honest it’s no where near as good as when you immerse yourself into this crazy and confusing virtual world.
Created for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Insane Decay of the mind can be downloaded from STEAM.
Recommended set-up – OS: Windows 10, Intel Core i5 4590 equivalent or greater, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti graphics card.
