LIDAR.EXE is a short first person horror game where you use a lidar scanner to map out and navigate the pitch black environment around you.
Drawing inspiration from the LIDAR Garry’s Mod add-on, LIDAR.EXE is a short experimental horror game from the creator of Toiletrooms and Sprucerio. It sees you trapped in a pitch black space and the only way you can see the environment is by “painting” it with LIDAR scans.
You can change the radius of the scan and you can stand still to perform detailed scans, all of which helps you get a better idea of what’s going on in the environment. There are specific environmental details that you will need to find in order to progress and there’s also the threat of a shadowy being lurking in the darkness…
It’s a great little horror game that makes creative use of its LIDAR based scanning system and has some satisfyingly creepy moments. It’s not quite as intense and scary as Enter & Survey but the scanning method feels better and the environments are more interesting. Highly recommended.
