According to its developer, Fallen Planet Studios, Affected has "no puzzles to solve, no coins to collect"—the player just has to make it to the end in one piece.
The journey takes you through three terrifying environments: The Manor, The Asylum, and the The Carnival. Each level makes use of various thematic fears and phobias, lots of jumpscares, cutting-edge 3D graphics, and dynamic sound effects, all in order to launch the player into a world filled with nightmares. The developer promises "heightened feelings of tension and more importantly, unprecedented levels of fear."
The Cyberith Virtualizer consists of a flat base plate whose low-friction surface allows the player to "walk, run, and strafe freely in every direction," and a uniquely constructed ring that allows one to use "vertical movements such as jumping and crouching, as well as a 360° axial rotation." Cyberith promises its design allows for "movement [that] feels realistic, dramatically enhancing immersion [and] the adjustable harness ensures that movement through virtual worlds is effortless."
If Affected makes anyone feel "comfortable" remains to be seen.
