This game will actually probably be out by the time you read this, on PS4 and PlayStation VR. Fuck Power Rangers, go back in time and give me this s**t at 10 years old. And also, tell me to please not grow my hair out for the school pictures. If you could have a robot point at me through the screen to say "Get that s**t cut, Chris," then elementary school is about to be smooooth sailing.
Become A Real Ghostbuster With Night Terrors
There are plenty of horror games out there, including a lot of great indie ones, but few let you turn your real house into a haunted one. Upcoming iOS game Night Terrors does just that, using augmented reality to map out your house and fill it with monsters. Kinda like Pokemon Go meets Wes Craven, except you'll probably s**t your pants before ever having a chance to catch one of these things.
The way it works is pretty interesting. You turn all the lights off in your house, throw on some headphones, and hold up your cell phone in front of your face, turning you into a character in your own found footage horror movie. The game accesses the camera light as your "flashlight," and as you move through your house, the game recognizes doorways and ceilings and will deliver ghosts and goblins to your screen (amazingly made using practical effects, without CGI). There is even a bit of a story too, just in case you thought this was going to be a simple whimper-helplessly-in-the-corner-while-begging-your-friend-to-turn-the-living-room-light-back-on simulator.
