Last week saw the launch of a Steam Greenlight campaign for a new virtual reality (VR) compatible horror experience by the name of Monster Shock. The title, from indie developer Fixer Games, is hoping to secure enough positive votes to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital PC service. Should everything go to plan then it will launch on PC with full support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). Below are the first screenshots for the title.
Monster Shock is a first-person survival horror experience that uses randomly generated environments. Players awaken in a mysterious medical facility and will explore their surroundings, uncovering how they arrived there and the area’s story before escaping. Enemies must be avoided as players set traps to stop them. The art style is a distinctive one for the genre, looking similar to Minecraft‘s block-based characters and environments.
A total of seven shots can be seen below, showing off that art style. They provide a good feel for just how the title will maintain a sense of atmosphere, with players using a torch to shine a light on dim, dank environments. In one screen what appears to be an enemy can be seen, though it isn’t clear if that is really the case right now.
VRFocus will continue to follow Monster Shock going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
