VR FPS Discoverie Launches

2013’s Seven Day First-Person Shooter (7DFPS) challenge has already supplied virtual reality (VR) technology with one of its most anticipated games in the form of SUPERHOT, an innovative FPS in which time moves only when the player does. But the project, which started out asa prototype for 7DFPS, isn’t the only entry into the content to support the Oculus Rift. Now Discoverie from indie developer Klick Tock has launched with support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD).


Discoverie was another entry in that same challenge. The title is a Roguelike videogame in which players explore an infinite, procedurally generated dungeon. As players progress through the area they will use a crossbow to fight back against dangerous creatures, looking for hidden keys to unlock new paths. Enemies range from bizarre creations to harmless-looking penguins and more. The title is inspired by the likes of Looking Glass, Proteus and Spelunky all rolled into one FPS.

Those interested can download Discoverie now via the official Oculus VR Share Beta for PC, Mac and Linux. The title is compatible with the Oculus Rift’s first development kit (DK1). There currently isn’t any word on if the developer is looking to implement support for the second development kit (DK2) in the future, adding positional tracking among other elements. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with all the latest.
