New Virtual Reality Game Pits You Against The Boogeyman

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.
