Games often have strange co-branding and marketing items to promote their release, and this is no exception. Dubbed the 4D Candle, it claims to be “horror-scented”, and it will add to your experience, especially in VR, as you play the game. The website shows it will “make you feel like you’re actually standing in the abandoned plantation house”.
We are not exactly sure what an abandoned plantation house smells like, but we are more curious about the horror scent. If we had to guess, it smells like sweaty regret for listening to the idiot who said we should all split up, or it could also be frustration when you think of your decision to wear high heels on a weekend trip to a spooky cabin in the woods.
The candle will burn for 25 hours, so you have plenty of time to decide.
What do you think horror smells like? Let us know in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
