Description

Dreadhalls is a horror dungeon crawler for the Oculus Rift and Gear VR. You are trapped deep inside a massive dungeon. Explore it, survive it, and find a way to escape. Your only weapons will be stealth, your own courage, and a faint light.

History

Dreadhalls was originally developed for the 2013 VR Jam game contest organized by Oculus VR and Indiecade, where it obtained an Honorable Mention. Its inspirations come from the survival horror and roguelike genres, as well as classic dungeon crawlers such as Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Master.

Features

  • Experience a new kind of immersive horror. In VR, your brain will be tricked into believing you really are inside a dark, damp dungeon, no matter where you look.
  • Levels in Dreadhalls are procedurally generated. Every time you play, the map will be different, so you'll never know what to expect next.
  • Listen to your surroundings! Dreadhalls combines positional audio cues and an original soundtrack to build its immersive soundscape.
  • Survival gameplay. Hide and run from the cretures that creep in the darkness. Find oil to keep your light fed. Surviving in a dungeon is not an easy task!
