It’s been some time since virtual reality (VR) fans have heard from Kubold, the developer behind a number of experiences for head-mounted displays (HMDs) including the upcoming Aliens, Trolls and Dragons. Alongside that full videogame, the studio has launched several smaller experiences, including a VR mech simulator that launched in late 2014. This week, however, Kubold is returning with another short VR videogame for fans to try out. That videogame is Spell Fighter, and a trailer for it can be seen below.
As Kubold explains, Spell Fighter is a first-person experience in which players use motion controllers to cast spells and fend off enemies with a sword. At present the title uses Razer Hydra controllers, although the developer plans to add support for other controllers when it gets access to them. It also uses voice controls, so a good microphone and the Voice Attack speech recognition program are needed. Much of the experience is comprised of a ‘small sandbox’ in which players can test their abilities, although a quest does also feature.
Spell Fighter has been released as a free experience for anyone with an Oculus Rift to try out. In the meantime, it appears that work on Aliens, Trolls and Dragons is still underway.
