Gunfire Games the indie studio behind Herobound: Spirit Champions on the Gear VR, and the Oculus Rift exclusive Chronos is now looking to hire more staff as the studio expands.
The studio is currently looking to fill three positions within the company: programmer, environment artist and VFX artist. These positions maybe for Chronos or for re-master of Nordic’ Darksiders II, titled Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. The other possibility is that Gunfire Games are looking for new staff to help with the current secret project listed on its website titled ‘Project X‘.
Chronos, the studio’s first major original IP which has been built from the ground up for virtual reality (VR), 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.
VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of Gunfire Games’ projects as further information is announced.
