Russian virtual reality (VR) hardware and software developer Fibrum has released its next experience for Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard, a space-based shooter called Space Stalker.
Space Stalker is an on-rails first-person shooter (FPS) where players take on missions to obtain ancient artefacts, whilst destroying mines, traps and other enemies on route. To help players on their way the ship features various upgrade options which can be unlocked as progress is made. Health, weapons, shields, stealth and other variants are available to ensure mission success.
“There are a lot of things to do in Space Stalker. We have prepared different locations from space landfills to ancient alien civilizations which are all full of dangers and adventures. Final missions is a real challenge, – says Alexey Glebov, the head of the project and a developer. – We are sure that the graphic design will please everybody who tries Space Stalker. The visualization of the game is at the maximum of contemporary mobile VR capabilities”.
Ilya Flaks, Fibrum CEO & Founder said in a statement: “Whilst the first year and a half working in the industry of mobile VR we have explored that users do not always understand what do they actually want. For some of them the variety of games and their number do not matter while the content and the game’s visuals are much more important. It is make sense to develop such projects that will increase users’ retention. Now we are conducting an experiment and releasing two big games. The first one is Space Stalker, the second one is edited on November. The main goal of these products is to attract the audience showing them the advantages of mobile VR and to increase the length of a gaming session by motivating people to a further usage of VR products”.
VRFocus will continue reporting on Fibrum’s VR projects, so check back for further updates.
