The first person to cross the finishing line or tag the watchman is to win the game. However, in this spine-chilling episode, the disqualified players are to receive a bit more than just being sidelined. They will be shot to death.

Compete online
Soaring Roc, the popular game developer known for Let’s Go Chopping, has developed a VR version of this gory game.

If they are caught moving, you know how things go down.

Along with Soaring Roc’s version, more VRChat creators are also developing their versions of the game. However, those are specifically designed for the popular social VR platform.

Soaring Roc’s Red Light Green Light is now available on Oculus Quest VR headsets completely free of cost. SideQuest is recommended to install the game on your respective headsets.
