PSVR Horror Game Do Not Open Has A Legitimately Scary Debut Trailer

Do Not Open, an upcoming PlayStation VR horror game from Quasar Dynamics, has been revealed in a first-look trailer. The game, which was developed as part of the PlayStationTalents initiative and is exclusive to Sony’s platform, is an escape room survival horror with permadeath.

The game casts players as Michael J. Goreng, a zoologist and epidemiologist who is trapped within a warped version of his own house. Each time you play, the layout of the house will change, as will the puzzles you’ll need to solve to escape the supernatural being haunting the house. There are no save points, so each time you play, it’ll be a complete experience from beginning to end, whether you finish without dying or not.

The game is described by the developers as being similar to an escape room, but with a terrifying supernatural bent. Check out the trailer below, which effectively ramps up the tension over its short run-time before…well, you’ll see. It’s not for the faint of heart, though, so proceed with caution.

The trailer claims that the game is based, in some part, on true events. A Google search suggests that Michael J. Goreng is not a real person, though.

Do Not Open does not have a release date yet. If you’re hungry for more horror, it’s also worth checking out the trailer for the next Resident Evil title, Resident Evil: Village, which is coming in 2021.
