New Virtual Reality Game Pits You Against The Boogeyman

It's the one story we've all been told at one point in our childhood: the boogeyman. That anonymous, backstory-lacking, entity that lurks under your bed and in your closet.

Now I write, it's a really fucking awful thing to tell kids, but whatever, now we're older, we can appreciate the fact someone's gone and made it into a virtual reality game/experience.

Developed by Barry McCabe and published by BlackStarGames, Boogeyman sees you play as Thomas, an 8-year-old obsessed by the notion of a monster waiting to get him. It's your job to protect yourself from that monster, and given that your only object is a torch, it's safe to say you're liable to getting the fucking shit scared right of you.
