A Chair in a Room: Greenwater is a terrifying virtual reality game set in America’s Deep South. At the beginning you – as the protagonist – find yourself as a patient in a psychiatric hospital, where you must piece together clues about your life. It is developed by Wolf and Wood Interactive Ltd – the team responsible for the horrifying The Exorcist: Legion VR series.
Immersive gameplay and chilling Gothic aesthetic
A Chair in a Room: Greenwater is essentially modelled around the concept of the escape room. This title, however, features numerous different rooms where progression from one to the next is split up by segments of narrative. The atmosphere of the game is truly disturbing, and the soundtrack and the choice of gothic settings, including an abandoned motel and a swamp, intensifies this terror.
Absorbing VR horror
Apart from the fact that there is sometimes an awkwardness associated with the manipulation of certain in-game objects, the game is beautifully designed. With its compelling storyline and immersive room-scale experience in which it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the game and reality, A Chair in a Room: Greenwater is one of the most impressive applications of VR technology around.
