White Day VR: The Courage Test was initially developed as an attraction for virtual reality theme parks in Japan. With over a year of field testing as a live experience to visitors of the park, the game has been optimized to provide a unique experience to players despite its short length, utilizing combinations of 3D sound design and randomized hiding places, jump scares, and more to “keep players on the edge of their seat no matter how many times they play.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
