Indie developer Sigtrap Games has today announced on its Steam page, pricing for its 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) shooter Sublevel Zero. The virtual reality (VR) compatible title which will feature support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) will be launched this Thursday, 8th October for PC and Mac. The VR support will be available shortly after the videogame becomes available.
The pricing for Sublevel Zero will be £10.99 GBP / $14.99 USD and €13.99 EUR, and in the first week early buyers will be able to get a 15% discount off the normal retail price.
Sublevel Zero is a 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) shooter inspired by classics like Descent andForsaken. In the first-person experience players pilot a lone gunship around randomly generated levels set in an underground facility. As they weave through tunnels and caverns players will encounter enemies and gather keys to unlock new paths. Weapons are also randomly generated and gathering upgrades will allow players to combine them to create more powerful tools. The further players progress, the more they will unlock, although the videogame does feature a permadeath system, where dying will send them back to the start with a new map to explore.
Sigtrap Games will make a Linux compatible version, and consoles are also being considered. No other VR HMD, other than the Oculus Rift has been announced to support Sublevel Zero, but VRFocus will continue to report on the latest details to be released by the UK developer.
