Description
Release date: February 2015
We love horror games and we love Pac Man! So we decided that we'd like to see a horror version of Pac Man - for Oculus Rift! The only difference being that it has an actual story arc and world to explore. This is how the game works - there is a hub world that the player starts in. They can access portals that take them to mazes where they need to collect soul shard and a puzzle piece. Soul shards are the currency of the game and unlock new abilities and future levels. The puzzle pieces are story items and the player needs to collect the piece from each level to create the Heaven's Riddle (puzzle ring) that will allow him to escape the hell he is trapped in. The player got there in the first place by making deal with a demon named Helen Bierce.

This is an arcade game, so the pace is fast and intense. It is not a slow tension build horror game like Slender Man. The style is more Haunting Ground/Castlevania/CarnEvil than anything else.

Carolyn Seymour (Myrrah from Gears of War and Dr. Chakwas from Mass Effect) lends her awesome voice to the game. The story is written by Mike Lee, the writer for Ghost Recon, HAWX, End War Online, Warhammer's Malus Darkblade Chronicles, and Hunter: Avengers.

You play as a cop on the run, fleeing from deeds you thought long buried. In desperation, you turn to the urban legend of Helen Bierce, a famous actress who vanished in 1930. Dark and disturbing rumors surrounded her disappearance at the time. Out of options and backed into a corner, your only chance is to dive headfirst into evil and hope to survive.

The gameplay for Dark Deception is pretty simple: collect all the soul shards (the purple triangles) before the monsters kill you. Collecting all the shards will reveal a puzzle piece, and grabbing that will complete the level.


Here's what you can expect from Dark Deception:

- Engaging & suspenseful story arc.
- 10-12 huge levels.
- Different enemies with different attack/movement patterns in each level (clowns, roaches, killer robots, evil dolls, zombies, and minatours, oh my).
- Fun gameplay mechanics.
- RPG elements
- Additional levels as an expansion later.
- Compatible with Oculus Rift (not needed to play the game though).
- Extras (art gallery from super talented concept artists around the industry, story archives, and more!).
- Professional soundtrack from Soundelux Music Group in LA.
- USB controller support

Also possible (depending on Kickstarter campaign):

- procedural levels
- localization (Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean).
- Multiplayer Mode - compete for shards with other players in an arena filled with monsters. Collect powers to become monsters and kill off other players. Player with the most shards wins!
