Dead Secret lasts for just a few sittings, but it's a game you'll walk away from satisfied. As bigger studios keep fumbling around for a VR blockbuster blueprint, indies like Robot Invader continue to fill in the gaps with smaller, more experimental games.

Dead Secret works as a mobile VR game, but its simplistic roots are painfully obvious on the PlayStation. The ability to play the game on a TV without a headset feels like a tacked on addition that wasn't optimized. Using PSVR, Dead Secret certainly has its frightful moments, and the story is intriguing enough to drive a player through to the end, but with all the great PSVR games out now, Dead Secret feels like a dud on the platform. It takes more than an intriguing story to make a great VR experience. While I had a fun rifling through Dead Secret's mysteries and more than once found myself spooked, it's not an experience I have a desire to play again or showcase on my headset.

Go into Dead Secret aware that it's a simplistic adventure primarily made for VR and your expectations will be kept in check. Possessing a story that will grip you until the credits roll, its mostly drab audio and visuals won't matter so much when you're trapped in its embrace. And its lack of challenge will just keep your progression rolling at an enjoyable pace.
