Watching someone stumble about while wearing an Oculus Rift is hilarious to those not partaking in the VR experience. Speaking of not partaking in virtual reality, we most definitely will not be signing up for this new game.

Produced by Netherlands VR company IgnisVR, the game, entitled Arachnophobia, was designed to help people overcome their fear of spiders.

It’s set in a New York City apartment overlooking Central Park, where players increase and decrease the number of spiders roaming about.

Earlier levels have the arachnids inside a jar, but as you progress, they get closer and closer to your immovable hand!

The game is a form of Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy, which aims to assist those with irrational fears by desensitising them.


Talk about it!
