Maere – When Lights Die is a virtual reality experiment using the Oculus Rift technology in order to scare the user.
It’s a First person Survival-horror game in which the user, being the subject of a dream-simulation experiment, is trapped in a nightmare.
Launched as a freeware on the Internet in April 2013, it encountered a great success thanks to many Youtube personalities (PewDiePie, Markiplier, Kigyar69, etc …) and has been downloaded more than 90,000 times.
The models have been worked in 3D Studio Max.
