The Mirror Rituals – A One of a Kind, Seated VR Horror Experience

Created, designed and built by Charles Burt, creator of the 10 million times played Commando Jack.

Backstory

Legend has it that performing a little known ritual, found written in blood in many Witch Doctor’s practices in Africa, usually ending up with their dead bodies impaled through the mirror in which they practiced. With only one survivor that holds knowledge of how the Ritual is practiced, but has feared for her life since finding out, passes it onto us, we managed to persuade her, as Ghost Hunters ourselves, we believe the gap between the Ether-real and the Real is closing with Virtual Reality. So we aim to see if anyone out there can figure out how to gain access to the Spirit World, using Virtual Reality. We do not know if this will harm the participants, as are not responsible for them figuring out the sequence to the Ritual, though we have been told, the one who figures out the sequence, can see have a temporary glance into the Spirit World as a parallel Quantum reality, and come back out of it unscathed. We do not take any responsibility for any harm, distress, emotional damage or anything negative at all that happens as a result of your interaction with this magic.

Outcomes of the Experience

Some players will have been able to complete the puzzle and some not. The ones that haven’t been able to complete it, will have done so because they were too scared to complete it. The players will be pleasantly surprised to experience something so new and original. They will immediately want to try this experience on their friends and loved ones, resulting in them being able to record their reactions.

Unique Selling Point

The game will place the player inside the game, using the computer’s webcam, the game can overlay evils into the real world, as if they were inside their own room with them, instead of within the haunted house… will the evil has escape from the Virtual Reality into the player’s houses?

The experience will be an entirely original experience, with creative puzzles, each building up the scare level. Nothing has ever been seen like it before.

Their friends can also jump out at them from behind and they will see them in the game through the camera.
