Earlier in the year indie developer Team Junkfish launched an Early Access version of its anticipated horror experience, Monstrum, on Steam. Since then, the developer has been busy adding new features to the experience in the build up to a launch of the full version. Today finally marks the release of this version of Monstrum on Steam, albeit still without support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), which is expected to arrive at some point in the near future.
Monstrum is a first-person experience that places players on a derelict cargo ship. Players must explore that ship, searching for an escape route. As they investigate, however, they will be hunted by one of three types of AI monsters, which they will not be able to fight back against. The title features a permadeath system, meaning that, when players are caught and killed by the given monster, they’ll have to start over from scratch. Levels are also procedurally generated, meaning that players will find themselves in a new ship layout every time they start.
The title is now available for £11.99 GBP. A specific date for the arrival of VR support is yet to be confirmed, nor has Team Junkfish announced if the title will also support the HTC Vive HMD on PC.
VRFocus will continue to follow Monstrum‘s progress, reporting back with the latest updates on the project.
