You know that bit in Alien when Dallas crawls into the ventilation system to search for the Xenomorph? There’s a section in The Persistence that reminded me a little of that scene and honestly, it was one of the scariest experiences I’ve had in a video game so far.

Developed by Firesprite, the team behind The Playroom VR, The Persistence is a stealth-horror game that’s light-years away from its family-friendly predecessor in both tone and personality.
The action takes place onboard a procedurally generated spaceship that’s heaving with horrors and it’s up to you to navigate your way through five dark and gloomy decks in order to kickstart the ship’s Stardrive.
