Another entry in the Unity sponsored Oculus VR Jam comes from North Carolinian developer Doug Pond. In his Gear VR smartphone-based head-mounted display title Synapse users take on the guise of a scientist desperately battling against a virus that is infecting people’s brains.
In the game you will pilot a ship created with nanotechnology Innerspace-style to neutralise the virus. This is done by firstly unlocking the pathway to the infection by solving a puzzle and then undertaking the second stage, combating the virus itself in a first-person perspective itself by using control sticks to match the pattern to attack the virus and neutralise it. Failure to do so will result in viral damage to the ship’s shield and ultimately destruction of the craft itself. Players will be judged on how well they perform and he ultimate aim is to gain high enough grades to enter the full scientific training program.
