    Have you been looking for a disturbingly creepy System Shock 2-ish experience with map layouts that change and essentially a form of permadeath because almost everything resets on each death? Well, until now PSVR has had that game held hostage!!! Now it's going multiplatform and it is no longer VR-only.




    Stumbled on it on Steam the other day. They originally announced a free "complete edition" for PS4 without the VR requirement but went dark for a year. I guess the plan changed to go multiplatform.

    I'm looking forward to trying it again. It was quite difficult to see its dark environments in the grainy low resolution PSVR.

    I've been playing the PSVR version on the TV lately now that it's updated to work that way. I think it's running 1080p60 on the PS4Pro. I think it's a lot more enjoyable on the big screen.

    I tried it on the HP Reverb on PC as well and that is certainly much clearer than the PSVR. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to respond to the SteamVR resolution settings so you can't oversample it.

    But anyway, this is a pretty unique mini System Shock 2 sorta thing. I think it's worth a try if you like that kind of game.
