For the past few months UK-based indie developer Triangular Pixels has been showing its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame, Smash Hit Plunder, at a number of industry events. The title, which runs on Samsung’s Gear VR smartphone-based head-mounted display (HMD), has become something of a mainstay at shows across the country. Those that haven’t had a chance to sample the experience yet needn’t worry; a demo for Smash Hit Plunder has just launched on Gear VR’s download hub, the Oculus VR Store.
The demo is similar to content that Triangular Pixels has showcased in the past, including a tutorial room in which players can get acquainted with Smash Hit Plunder‘s controls and concepts. From there, players can explore a series of rooms in which they must smash as many objects as possible, gathering any loot that is produced from the wreckage. Instead of utilising Samsung’s Bluetooth gamepad, the title uses the Gear VR’s touchpad to allow players to pick up and levitate objects before swiping to throw them into walls and smash them on the floor.
For those without a Gear VR, the first trailer for Smash Hit Plunder was revealed last month, showcasing the title’s unique concept and retro art style. A full release date is yet to be revealed and Triangular Pixels is yet to comment on the possibility of bringing the title to other HMDs.
VRFocus will continue to follow Smash Hit Plunder‘s progress closely, reporting back with any further updates from the title.
