If you saw Oculus VR’s press conference on Thursday you’ll know that a variety of different developers managed to show off their upcoming games. Shown at the event was a host of genres revealing what’s in store for virtual reality (VR) and Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). One of those titles was from indie developer Gunfire Games with Chronos, which VRFocus has previously reported on.
Chronos is a third-person RPG in which players control a young man on a lifelong quest to complete an ancient labyrinth. This Labyrinth holds the secrets necessary to save his homeland from a great evil. The unique twist in the game is that the labyrinth can only be opened once a year. As the hero explores the many caverns and tombs to unlock the secrets inside, he must avoid failure. If he fails in his quest he is cast out and must return one year later. Meaning that as each subsequent attempt fails the character ages and there for loses the benefit of youth, being quick and agile and replaces those qualities as he ages for wisdom and magic.
This isn’t Gunfire Games only project either. The company has released Herobound: Spirit Champion on the Oculus VR and Samsung joint HMD, Gear VR. Gunfire Games aren’t solely working on VR either, as the company has confirmed that it’s working on a re-master of Nordic’ Darksiders II, titled Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
