About

YOU ARE BEING FOLLOWED is a virtual reality story-driven game, containing puzzle and exploration elements, where you only see what you can hear. You control Emma, a blind woman, driven by paranoia to leave the noise of her home in a bustling metropolis in pursuit of a place of complete silence.

Environment

The opening level is a city street in the Midlands. From there, the settings move from the urban to the rural, with the final chapter taking place upon a Lake District moor, in complete isolation.This level sees the player finally find the source of the noises that has been following them throughout the whole game

Characters

Emma - a blind woman in her thirties, nervous and impulsive. Estranged from her family, she lives a reclusive life with her dog, Samuel.

Samuel, the guide dog, is the player’s loyal companion. An ageing German shepherd, he is a source of comfort and aid for the player.

The final character in the game is you, the player. Driven by curiosity, you immerse yourself in Emma’s world, not realising that your presence is the cause of her escalating distress and paranoia.

Controls

Oculus Rift

Completely immersive, the player would be able to hear 360° sound, meaning they can make sense of the layout of the environment using their real-life sense of hearing.
