What is Spectre?
Spectre is a breakthrough that brings new experiences in virtual reality to horror fans creating film-like suspense and surprises. Designed for immersive virtual reality and 3D, truly original gameplay has players pursued by the chilling Spectre in stunning and terrifying environments.
Spectre is volunteer driven, with dedicated individuals working on a groundbreaking horror VR game driven by our passion for the game. Spectre launched on Kickstarter Sunday, March 2nd 2014, and was successfully funded 122% of its goal! In a matter of weeks, Spectre was Greenlit on Steam, where it will be distributed upon completion. Since completion, Spectre has been nominated for the 2014 Proto Awards for Best VR Social Experience. Now, you can play Spectre for PC on Steam, and a new mobile version of Spectre for Gear VR!
In Spectre's single player mode, you play as a lone Seeker, a wanderer lost inside an abandoned mansion. You'll soon discover that you are being stalked by the Spectre, a malevolent and elusive spirit residing in the mansion. Equipped with nothing but your headlight, all you can do is keep moving. Your ultimate goal is to explore the mansion and obtain a means of dispelling the looming Spectre permanently.
In Spectre's multiplayer modes, up to four players are able to take the roles of Spectres and Seekers. Seekers can work together to equip themselves to attack the Spectre. The Spectre has its own arsenal of tricks it can use to deceive, disorient, and ultimately, lead the Seekers into its immobilizing clutches. The Spectre's abilities include creating traps that distort the Seekers' vision and movement, and creating false immobilized Seeker decoys that turn on Seekers when approached.
Spectre relies heavily on the foreboding suspense of the unknown. Perhaps its most defining feature, Spectre lets the players scare each other. With danger lurking so close, any movement, from friend or foe, is startling. The Spectre may be hiding around the corner. Seekers' teammates may be imposters. The Spectre and Seekers are always in pursuit.
OK, but who is responsible for this masterpiece?
We are Proscenium, the team behind Spectre. We are a small group of indie game developers from around the world. Brought together by the 2013 VR Jam, we spent the month of August tirelessly developing Spectre from the ground up. We have continued developing Spectre with the goal to create a truly entertaining and unique gaming experience. As we're nearing the end of development, we are as excited as ever to bring this game to you.
Got it! Now When can I play it?
Spectre for PC is available now for both Oculus Rift and non-VR setups on Steam! A new, single player version of Spectre is coming to Gear VR May 2016!
