Danger Lies Beneath In Tower Defence Videogame Shoggoth Rising

Today’s the Oculus VR Share spotlight is shone on a new game experience developed and published by Swiss design company dreipol GmbH. In Shoggoth Rising you take on the role of a seaman who has been shipwrecked on a small rocky outcrop. 

Shoggoth Rising

Taking shelter in the nearby lighthouse you quickly find that it is the only thing standing in the way of a seemingly never ending array of hideous sea monsters who seem determined to send you on an one-way trip to Davy Jones’ locker. In order to survive you must defend the lighthouse from the undersea horrors, will you live to see another dawn?

In essence a VR tower defence game, the experience is classified by the developers as an ‘interactive teaser/Oculus tech demo’,  with the title available on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and also as an app for Windows 8.  Oculus Rift users who would like to give it a try in virtual reality (VR), they will require a DK2 version of the head-mounted display (HMD). Whilst the experience can be controlled through mouse, keyboard or joypad inputs.

What other experience will Oculus VR Share bring us? VRFocus will be looking at other new listings on the platform very soon.
