What can I say? I love horror games! When I hear of a horror game that doesn’t sound familiar to me, I get excited at the possibility of a brand new franchise being born. Rise of Insanity is one of these games. Released in 2018 on PC and VR by Red Limb Studios (a small and independent company), it has gained a big fanbase via Steam and it is only their second game. They are looking to bring their hit to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR … so if you wanted to play the game and don’t have a compatible PC or VR Headset, you will be able to via a PS4. Red Limb Studios shared the following press release:

“Red Limb Studio is happy to announce that first-person psychological horror game Rise of Insanity will be available for the Playstation 4 and Playstation VR on July 12 (Friday).”

“For Rise of Insanity we drew inspiration from classic psychological horror masterpieces such as The Shining, The Exorcist and Silent Hill,” says Kylu of Red Limb Studio.”

“The human mind can really be a container of horrors when we let our fears and monsters linger inside. In this game, we also wanted to represent mental illness in some original ways, and let you literally ‘fly’ through the hidden paths of consciousness.”


  • Realistic graphics provide a horrifying and immersive atmosphere that will chill you to the core.
  • Haunting soundtrack and professional voice acting.
  • Explore diverse locations inspired by North American architectural trends from the early 70s.
  • Walk, examine, discover dark secrets, and solve logical puzzles.

For those who are curious about what Rise of Insanity is, you can review the following description:

“In Rise of Insanity, as a doctor of psychology, you will explore the darkest recesses of the human mind. Overcome your fear to find the truth behind the tragedy that has befallen your family in this disturbing game experience inspired by the greatest psychological horror movies.”

“Set in America in the 1970s, the story centers around Dr. Stephen Dowell, a renowned phycologist faced with a difficult patient who shows distinct yet contradictory symptoms of different mental disorders. The life of the doctor himself is also shrouded in mystery — you must step into his shoes to find out the truth.”
