Early last month VRFocus reported on news that Dungeon Nightmares II from indie developer K Monkey would be receiving support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). The news was announced through the title’s Steam Greenlight campaign, which hoped to secure enough positive votes to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital PC store come full release. This week the title has passed that campaign.
Dungeon Nightmares II is first-person experience featuring procedurally-generated maps in which players explore a dungeon, searching for an exit as they try to avoid contact with enemies. Each time the player dies they will start over in a new map, making the title similar to the likes of other VR horror experiences such as Team Junkfish’s Monstrum. It is the sequel to the original Dungeon Nightmares, which came to both mobile and PC platforms over the course of 2013 and 2014.
“Thank you everyone for getting Dungeon Nightmares II Greenlit on Steam! It has been a great ride so far and it’s just the beginning,” the developer said of the news.
“As a solo developer, knowing that the public chose to get this game on Steam fantastic and I will make sure the complete game lives up to your expectations PLUS more.
“The game currently is progressing very well with lots of new things added nearly all the time. Right now I have been messing around with Oculus Rift support and has been a joy to work with.”
A demo for Dungeon Nightmares II can currently be found on the Greenlight page. A release date for the title is yet to be provided. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress, reporting back with any further updates on it.
