Announced today by indie developer Triangular Pixels, the team behind last year’s Smash Hit Plunder, is Unseen Diplomacy VR. The title will be exclusively available for demonstration at GameCity’s Festival in November. In a unique twist Unseen Diplomacy VR will be the first ever game to combine both Valve’s HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift head-mounted displays (HMDs) in one intense collaborative challenge.
The GameCity event will feature a real-life obstacle course created by the HTC Vive’s VR environment, attendees will run and roll, sneak and solve their way through volcano lairs and moon bases. Players will be able to go in alone or as part of a team, with the team mates using Oculus Rift HMDs.
Katie Goode, Creative Director at Triangular Pixels said in a statement: “We wanted to make something rather special – an experience that people will not be able to have in their homes, one that they will remember for years to come. We want to take them away to make them forget it’s a game, but make them feel like real super heroes.” She goes on to say: “We are always aiming to push the boundaries of what’s possible in VR. We have spent just a month creating this experience and have a passion for social VR and awesome new player interactions. The future of VR is something that everyone can take part in, even if you are not in the device yourself.
GameCity are fantastic at supporting indie developers, and provided us a platform to launch our game, Smash Hit Plunder. We wanted to give them something special back.”
The GameCity Festival is being held in Nottingham, UK, between 22nd – 31st October 2015, and Unseen Diplomacy VR will be available from the 24th November. VRFocus will be following all the latest news and updates from Triangular Pixels regarding Unseen Diplomacy VR, as more details are announced.
