We’re just a few short weeks from the October 13 release date of PlayStation VR, PlayStation’s virtual reality headset that will work with the PS4.

Shipping with the headset will be a disc with short demos of several games, one of which is called “Here They Lie.” It’s being developed by a new studio called Tangentlemen, a co-creator of which is Toby Gard, the designer of Lara Croft in the original “Tomb Raider.”

It looks super creepy.


It looks like “Here They Lie” will take advantage of the first-person perspective, making you feel as though you’re experiencing all of its horrors firsthand.

Or this lady with a golden mask, it will probably feel like they’re coming for YOU, not your character.

The trailer, embedded at the bottom of this post, emphasizes its surreal and atmospheric qualities, showing undulating walls and creepy figures suddenly popping into frame.

One major complaint people have had with VR games thus far is that they feel gimmicky, like toys that only hold your attention for a short time, so we’ll see whether “Here They Lie” can live up to the potential its trailer promises.
