Mad in Heaven is a very creepy and jump scare filled Unreal Engine-powered first person horror in which you play a security guard who has a habit of sleeping on the job and ending up in some truly nightmarish places.
The gameplay in Mad in Heaven feels a little similar to PT, as although it doesn’t feature PT‘s looping corridors, there are some terrifying scripted scares that occur and a nice attention to detail as you roam the abandoned house in the current build. Whether or not these scares land will depend on whether you’re facing the right direction at times, but if they catch you just right you really will jump out of your chair.
It’s clearly still very early in development so does have some rough edges still (we’re particularly confused about what’s going on in the first scene), but Mad In Heaven certainly shows promise. For better or worse it feels like a very good haunted house fairground attraction – sure it feels a little like it’s on rails and the jump scares are all scripted, but when the scares land just right, they really will terrify you. A freaky little thrill ride.
