Psychological scare simulator Visage has surpassed its Kickstarter campaign goal, thereby ensuring that this disturbing corridor crawler will creep its way onto PS4, Xbox One and PC early next year.

The crowdfunding push ended this weekend, with more than $120,129 CAD (about $90k) in the bank. Backers have only themselves to blame for their impending psychiatric breakdown, as their enthused generosity managed to secure Visage's virtual reality stretch goal, meaning this really will be a waking nightmare you can't look away from.

Owing a heavy debt to the criminally cancelled P.T., Visage drops you into an acutely unsettling home with a dark history:

The game takes place in a secluded town in the 1980s. The house you are in has been there for centuries, and its foundations never seem to decay. Dozens of families have lived here. Many of them died brutally, while others lived their lives placidly in their beloved home. Is there something triggering inevitable deaths, or is it pure coincidence?

Keen to forge an identity of their own, the developers claim that they will expand P.T.'s real-life horror elements "to a much, much deeper level." I'm not sure I'm quite prepared for that...

Check out an extended gameplay trailer below:

Visage looks like its set to satiate those dying to scratch that P.T. itch in Silent Hills' absence.
