This week Polish indie studio The House of Fables has launched its Nordic themed Gear VR title, Wrath of Loki: VR Adventure.
The virtual reality adventure videogame casts players as Thor, the god of thunder, who must face Loki and stop Ragnarok, the mythical end of days befalling Asgaard.
“Our team has quite a lot of experience creating adventure games,” said Adam Robaszy?ski-Janiec, CEO, The House of Fables. “We know what our fans expect and what kind of experience they are looking for. So as soon as VR headsets started to become popular, we knew that they were perfect for the kind of games we create. But instead of adapting one of our previously released titles to one of the platforms, we’ve decided to create a game that is designed specifically with VR headsets in mind. One that would allow gamers to fully dive into the game world and let them feel like they’re a part of it. That’s how Wrath of Loki: VR Adventure was born.”
Wrath of Loki: VR Adventure includes hand-drawn locations, an immersive soundtrack and the voice acting by Michael McConnohie, whose extensive back catalogue includes videogames, animation and anime.
Recently Steel Media along with Deepoon held the Global VR Challenge, beginning in the UK before being whittled down to 10 finalists at the ChinaJoy event in July. Wrath of Loki: VR Adventure was part of those ten but didn’t go on to win.
The videogame can be downloaded for $2.99 USD from the Oculus Store for Gear VR. And for all the latest releases, keep reading VRFocus.
