With the lights off, you can only depend on your phone’s LED to guide you as you make your way across the room. It doesn’t uses CGI but according to the developers, “every augmented element is photographed in order to compost elements and match lighting in the players’ environment. With control over the devices LED, the lighting conditions of both element and environment can be manipulated to create a perfect, extraordinarily frightening match.”
The game’s developers have also used a system that can map your house to give the player a “much more realistic” ghost placement during the game. It currently runs on four major algorithms and through the developers’ dedication and hard work, expect Night Terrors to give you nightmares – nightmares that all seem too real!
