Shocking new trailer for Lovecraftian VR horror game, Edge of Nowhere

The emerging technologies behind Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are both terrifying and exhilarating, so it's with minor trepidation that we show you the latest trailer for Edge of Nowhere.

It's a trippy new VR game being released June 6 and aimed at the Oculus Rift virtual reality gaming system sold and marketed by Facebook-owned Oculus VR. Insomniac Games (Ratchet and Clank, Sunset Overdrive) developed this eerie horror adventure experience with a Lovecraftian, At the Mountains of Madness flair and a paranoid, Dead Space vibe.


Here's the official description and synopsis from Insomniac:

Edge of Nowhere is a VR third-person action-adventure from acclaimed independent developer Insomniac Games. Follow the trail of a missing expedition that leads across the treacherous mountains of Antarctica. Scale massive ice walls and travel deep into alien caves in this unsettling psychological thriller. In Edge of Nowhere, nothing is what it seems and the unexpected lurks from all sides.

His rescue mission takes a sudden turn as he ventures deeper into a dark monstrous world where reality warps and twists around him. Desperate to find the one he loves, Victor must encounter disturbing creatures and climb sheer cliff walls as he descends further into madness.
