Whyme is like a perfect escape room game, but with a horror twist.

You’ll be locked in a mansion and your goal is to find the key to the main door using clues and get the hell out of there ASAP!

8. CatOS VR

This Vr Game Scares Me....
  • Genre: Action, Horror, Sports

Not every horror VR game has to be intense. Sometimes playing together with friends and family and just screaming is more fun than actual horror.

The cat moves independently with random destinations, creating a sense of unpredictability and suspense.

CatOS VR combines horror elements with comedic aspects, creating a unique blend of emotions… You can say it’s a pretty “funny horror VR game.” (…hehe)

In CAT VR, your mission is to collect all six items scattered throughout the world to send the evil pussy CAT back into the box.
