My first VR horror experience made me puke — here’s what I played


Wraith: The Oblivion — Afterlife (WTOA) is a new hair-raising VR horror game that had me spewing out a self-assuring chant to calm my nerves: “This is just a game. What you’re seeing is not real. Don’t be afraid. You are safe in your living room.” Unfortunately, no matter how many times I repeated this mantra, I couldn’t convince my mind nor my body that I was not in grave danger.

WTOA, developed by Stockholm-based Fast Travel Games, is my first foray in the VR horror world. Initially, it didn’t seem too bad. I ran into a few ghastly apparitions here and there, but they minded their own business — at first. This is how I like my ghosts. Don’t start none, won’t be none! However, as you progress in the game, there are some gnarly supernatural occurrences that will make you jump out of your skin.
