Blackpool, UK, October 20, 2017 – Mad About Games Studios Ltd. announced today the release of Reficul for PC on thesteamplatform this coming Halloween.

Reficul Is built from the ground up for VR and is a survival horror game for the Oculus Rift and HTC-Vive. The game focuses on single player and boasts some unique and fun features such as perma-death, realistic weapon handling, teleport and locomotion, real-time inventory and a unique enemy with no jump scares. The game is set in an apocalypse and is open world.  More info is available on the official website:

“We love Horror games but wanted to steer away from the traditional scripted Jump-Scare horror game and concentrate more on the action in an apocalyptic setting." said Lead Designer Shaun Williams. "There are many horror games coming onto the market but most apocalypse games are based on zombies or aliens. We wanted to adopt a new type of apocalypse with a very different enemy." "With the incredible experience and talent of our small indie team, we are thrilled to offer what we believe is a fun and eerie action-based survival horror game with lots to explore and freedom for the player in this dark new world.”

Reficul is designed for VR motion controllers and incorporates teleportation and locomotion as well as real physics. The controls are easy to pick up and we have an awesome real-time inventory system which may take a little time to master. The game supports Oculus Rift and HTC-Vive with motion controllers and is a standing game.

This is the 3rdVR release from Mad About Games Studios Ltd. The small Blackpool based indie studio is led by Shaun Williams BA, best known for his work on such VR titles asCDF Starfighter VR, and Ghostship Aftermath. Using the Unreal engine 4, the game is brought to life from a small indie UK based studio who has worked with Unreal 3 and the Unreal 4 engine for the last 5 years.
