"Of all the things you choose in life, you don't get to choose what your nightmares are. You don't pick them; they pick you." -- John Irving

The Bellows has recently been reworked from the ground up. Taking the knowledge gleaned from the previous release, Castle Steps has created a polished horror experience designed to show people just how scary VR can be. The game has been redone with brand new content, new scares, and a singular focus. Scaring you, scaring your family, and scaring your friends. Plunge yourself into a world of nightmares and fear, and discover just how frightening virtual reality can be.

Included in The Bellows:

- The Bellows
We've completely reworked the original Bellows title. While there are certainly nodds to the old game, almost all the content is brand new and completely revamped. It's shorter, scarier, and all around built to be perfect for showing off virtual horror in both home and arcade settings. The game has been built specifically for HTC Vive, but is also supported on Oculus Rift when being played through SteamVR. The game takes on average about 15 minutes to complete.

- The Bellows: Omni
Identical to the revamped Bellows experience described above, we're proud to say we've partnered with Virtuix to make a version of our newly improved game available for use with the Omni.

- The Bellows Legacy:
This is the game that originally came out Halloween 2016. It has some bugs that we were never able to resolve, but we've decided to include it nonetheless. We feel it would be unfair to remove a product people have paid for, although we recognize it has issues that render it a very flawed product on its own. It only plays on Vive, and there are no plans to update it. We hope you enjoy it, but please understand going in that there may be consistent crashes on some hardware.

The Bellows reviews and comments

I bought this game because the Demo was awesome! This is the scariest Horror game I ever played. I nearly couldn't stand it. The bug with the deactivated lights is now fixed and the game works perfect now, so I suggest to all people who had the problem and gave negative review (me included), try it again now and change your review. The game deserves better reviews! It is so aweseome! It scares the s * * * out of you! I recorded a new Let's Play video (commented in german, game in english) on my YouTube-Channel, see below the review. ----------------------------------------------------------------------I bought this Game because the Demo was very horny. It's definitely the fiercest horror game I know, I almost put myself in the Pants, barely to stand! The Error with the missing Lights was quickly fixed. I advise all The people who had the Problem and gave the Game negative (including me) to test it again and then, in fairness, to change the review, because the Game deserves Better! I also recorded a new Let's Play Video for my YouTube channel: New Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSNOXft6Oxs Old video (old video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iSldodaP4c

Actually, I did not think that I would say this, but in your horror lack cliché and scrimers. Especially Skimerov. Because The essence of this product is not in history (which, by the way, standard), namely in the atmosphere of the mansion with ghosts and adrenaline. The Thing is: the product was tested by me on me and in this case I was scared just from the dark corridors, good sound effects and self-twisting. But friends with the psyche stronger than reacted. Well, the furniture took off, well, there's a straight guy on the dark corridor. Well, that's not even the way it goes. And it comes and disappears. What are you doing? What did you want? For such cases we need scimers. Patamishta to see the scrims in the movies-this is one thing, in virtual reality is different. And So what else to say in general? Story something happened there. Some sort of family disassembly. Whether you killed your wife, whether she buried you alive, and then killed herself. It's Like that. The Goal is to find out what happened. All This is presented to you through unhurried symbolism. In General, you are also a ghost. SPOILER HA-HA. Not At all. This is understandable almost immediately. Until the end of the story, none of us did not reach. Someone did not scare the game and became bored, someone was impressed by the flying discs and did not go further. Verdict: Norm So. For 190 rub. Generally very norms. The Graphics could be better, of course. And As for the atmosphere-it is generally dependent on the playing. I Recommend, perhaps, why not.
