Underwater VR survival experience Narcosis launched last week for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. It garnered some critical praise for its atmospheric horror and now developer Honor Code Inc. are introducing some new updates and bug fixes.
Narcosis places the player in a bulky diving suit deep underwater, trying to survive after a terrible disaster left them stranded and alone in the depths of the ocean, armed only with a flashlight, some flares and a knife. The experience relies on creating an oppressive, stressful atmosphere to immerse the player in the experience as they try and explore underwater ruins and get to safety while maintaining their precious supply of oxygen.
The new update introduces the opportunity to collect Steam Trading Cards, Badges and custom Emoticons. The development team have also fixed some bugs, so now mouse/keyboard users can correctly invert the Y axis and the flare trajectory works as it should. Ultra-wide support is also currently being worked on.
The development team at Honor Code have teased the player base with the following: “Have you recovered all the ID tags? Unearthed all the ‘relics’?” Does this suggest that more may be added in future? Does it mean there are more to be found than the players have so far discovered?
Honor Code are also asking users to leave reviews and feedback so they can get a better picture of what needs to be changed or improved.
Narcosis is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Steam for £15.99 (GBP). Further details and updates can be found on the official Steam page.
