Today virtual reality (VR) developer Bolverk Games has announced its second title set to launch later this month. Going for an American deep south feel, Dick Wilde, is a rooting tooting first-person shooter (FPS) for Oculus Rift and Touch, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR.
A comedic shooter, players take the role of the titular character who’s been hired to rid Mississippi swamps of ravenous animals that are turning the hunters into the hunted. With a range of home built weapons at their disposal, from normal guns to nail guns, saw blades, grenades and more. players will have to eradicate gators, electrics eels, giant turtles and more before the swamp can be deemed safe. The videogame will feature 9 levels across three different habitats, with three difficulty levels to master.
Bolverk Games will be taking Dick Wilde to PAX East this weekend for visitors to get a feel for the title before launch. Dick Wilde will hit Steam and the Oculus Store for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift respectively on 30th March 2017. It’ll be priced at $19.99 USD/£17.99 GBP, but for the first week there will be a 20 percent discount available for early adopters. PlayStation VR owners will have to wait until later this year to get their hands on the title.
The developers first VR experience was Kittypocalypse, a tower defence title set across 20 missions with players having to stop a race of wide eyed evil alien kittens from reining destruction down upon your base. Arriving on Oculus Rift just after it launched, with support then expanded to HTC Vive a few months later, checkout the VRFocus review for further details.
