Elsewhere, Tyffon has raised $7.8 million to expand its location-based, ‘free roam’ virtual reality locations from Japan to the US after launching a new VR experience – Tarot VR: Voyage of Reverie.

As well as Tarot VR, Tyffonium has two more experiences on offer – Corridor and Fluctus. In Corridor, players can explore an old, abandoned house and its terrifying occupants, while Fluctus invites gamers to sail a ghost shop through a fantasy parallel universe.

Corridor is reported to be so scary that 1 out of every in 100 participants are too afraid to complete the experience.
