VRFocus has been closely following Carbon Studios virtual reality (VR) project ALICE VR for sometime now, getting to preview the title at Gamescom in August. Now its time for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR owners to head down the rabbit hole as the videogame has launched today on Steam.
As the name suggests ALICE VR has been inspired by Lewis Carroll’s famous book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, but this time players will find themselves in a sci-fi adventure.
Alice VR begins on a spaceship, where a malfunction prompts the ship’s AI to wake players from cryosleep and forces an emergency landing on a foreign planet called Speculo. The colony on this planet mines a vital resource for interstellar travel and so players must head to the nearest city of Mirabilis in search of fuel, only to find that all of the inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared. There are puzzles to be solved along the way, alongside some weird and mysterious events that take place.
The videogame has launched with a limited time discount available for Steam users. There’s a ten percent saving to be had until 3rd November 2016, dropping the price down from £18.99 GBP to £17.09. Carbon Studio has also included the soundtrack, an artbook and developer diaries and wallpapers in the price, which are all available as separate DLC.
Checkout the launch trailer below, and VRFocus will continue its coverage of ALICE VR, reporting back with further announcements.
