1950’s Gun-toting VR Comes To PAX In ‘The American Dream’
Hotdogs and handguns, in 1950's America.
Samurai Punk, the studio behind the popular multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) Screencheat, has announced a virtual reality (VR) videogame that is most definitely intended as a satirical experience. The American Dream, revealed this weekend at PAX West 2016, Seattle, gives the player rifles, shotguns and dual-wielded pistols to perform every action, from eating donuts to working on an assembly line.
“The world of The American Dream sets its sights on a future where guns are used for all manner of things like eating a meal, driving a car or working to provide for your family,” reads Samurai Punk’s official description of the videogame. “Players travel through a vast complex constructed by a group of respected gun manufacturers aiming to show the world the virtues of guns for the common man.”
The videogame was playable at PAX West 2016 this weekend, with the environments and gameplay on offer presented in the official trailer below. Few other details on The American Dream are currently available, however a release in 2017 for ‘major VR platforms’ has been confirmed. At this moment in time, VRFocus would take that to suggest HTC Vive, PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift. Of course, we’ll keep you updated when further details are officially revealed.
