I’m gathering some research data on pacing and subversion in video games.  Using the horror genre to keep it simple for design.  To that end, I’ve created Spider Scare 3D!  A brief horror experience that tracks your play-style.  


Store page info –

A brief horror project built in Unreal Engine 4.20.  Not a full game.  A spooky sequence of familiar gaming circumstances used  for research purposes only.

The game captures data on reaction times and delays between events.  No personal info is captured (except for email address but you can opt to leave that blank). 

Upon completion (about 5-6 mins) two data files are deposited on your desktop.  Additionally, your browser will open a Google Drive link and Survey Monkey page.  Please upload the data files and complete the survey.   It should only take 2 minutes.

All data is used to further the understanding of player mindset, delays, subversion and horror pacing in games.  

If you’re interested in reading the research projects results, please contact [email protected] for details.
