Wales Interactive launch Don’t Knock Twice VR game

The Welsh developers have released their VR horror game for PS VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

Don’t Knock Twice is a first-person VR horror game based on a psychologically terrifying urban legend. To save her estranged daughter, a guilt-ridden mother must uncover the frightening truth behind the urban tale of a vengeful, demonic witch. One knock to wake her from her bed, twice to raise her from the dead.

The game was developed alongside the horror film Don’t Knock Twice, in partnership with Ffilm Cymru Wales and Red and Black Films. Starring Lucy Boynton and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), and directed by Caradog James (The Machine), the film is available now on DVD and digital download.

The game has launched at £15.99 / $19.99 and with that, the player will receive the full VR game and the option to play without a VR device. This will be bundled with the game and no extra purchase or download is necessary. Xbox One gamers will receive the standalone non-VR version for £9.99 / $14.99.

As well as VR, Don’t Knock Twice can also be played without a VR device and Wales Interactive have balanced the scares for both scenarios to create a VR horror that’s accessible and enjoyed by all. They've implemented many different controller setups including standard controllers, single or dual PlayStation Move controllers, Vive controllers and Oculus touch. You can play seated, standing or room-scale. Don’t Knock Twice is a 2-3 hour game with adventure horror style gameplay driven by narrative clues, an intuitive control system featuring teleportation, "stretchy hands" and aone-click 180° rotate button, hidden collectables and achievements, two ending scenarios and a Platinum Trophy.

The Don’t Knock Twice film was written by Mark Huckerby & Nick Ostler, directed by Caradog James and produced by Red and Black Films’ John Giwa-Amu. It was supported from an early stage by Ffilm Cymru Wales, and was the first Welsh project to benefit from Welsh Government and Pinewood Pictures’ Media Investment Fund.
