The PC version of the psychological thriller launched for $19.99 over on the Steam store. The game can be played normally or you can slap on one of those overly expensive HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or Windows Mixed Reality HMDs to play the game in VR.
I’m here to tell you that it’s not worth the price of admission for a VR headset just to play Intruders as if someone strapped a five pound bondage mask on your face and forced you look at PS3-era graphics on resolutions that would make you go blind.
Anyway, Intruders has an interesting concept but it’s your typical VR title where you spend a lot of time fumbling around with the controls and trying to interact with an environment that feels more like a set-piece than a home.
The plot of the game centers around a family who is vacationing at their summer house only to have three intruders invade the spiffy, high-tech abode and terrorize and torture the family. Players take on the role of a young boy who must navigate the home, avoiding the intruders and communicating with his sister who is locked away in the safe room.
This isn’t to be confused with the 2016 indie flick from Momentum starring Rory Culkin and Beth Reiesgraf, which was also called Intruders. Technically that movie has an interesting twist.
Anyway, the game itself has players navigating the house, avoiding the enemies, and trying to find a way to save your family. It’s like a mix between the movies Home Alone and Safe Room.
If you’re interested in the game you can do so right now on Steam for PC. The PSVR version is also still available, but if you did have to play the game it’s best that it’s done on PC so you can take advantage of the higher resolution, smoother frame-rates and more precise controls.
