Description:


    We present ”Sophroneo: Fear not”, a VR horror experience with thermal feedback interface. To emphasize the supernatural side of the experience we introduce several innovative approaches, such as long intense cold feedback, liminal audio and physiological feedback loops. We built a wearable thermal feedback setup with water-cooled Peltier TEC elements for long cold sensations to improve the immersion and to increase the sense of fear and unease. At several points of the experience the player will have to close their eyes and interact with the VR environment depending on their other senses alone.
