The second title from the developers calls on references such as Silent Hill, Shining or the Exorcist.

At the same time, the doctor's life is shrouded in mysteries.

You will have to solve puzzles, explore spooky environments and surely jump from time to time. Jump scares oblige.
Rising prices and incompatibility with the PS Move
Note that Rise of Insanity on Playstation VR is to be reserved for English speakers. The voices are in Shakespeare's language, but we French people have no luck with the subtitles. Indeed, these are already available in German, Russian, Korean, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Portuguese, Polish, Spanish and Italian.
In addition, the game is not compatible with Playstation Move, just as the PC version does not work with Oculus Touch or HTC Vive controllers.
