Force Field VR, the studio behind Oculus Rift title Landfall, has launched its next virtual reality (VR) title, a stealthy puzzle experience called Term1nal for Samsung Gear VR.
Term1nal revolves around the story of Flynn Lightman, a highly skilled hacker, who specialises in remotely controlling androids from the safety of his secret hide-out. Hired to infiltrate a data security and advanced robotics company called STRIDE Industries, Lightman takes control of one of STRIDE’s prototype android’s and delves into the depths of the facility alongside an over enthusiastic robot dog.
Rather than first-person, the majority of the video game is viewed from overhead – basically through the company’s CCTV cameras – with players having to solve a range of puzzles, such as cutting wires, deciphering codes or connecting nodes in first-person. There will also be area puzzles which need to be completed using the robotic dog, all the while avoiding stationary gun emplacements or mobile security robots.
Featuring 12 missions, Term1nal has been inspired by movies like iRobot, Ghost in the Shell, Ex Machina and The Matrix, where the lines between the organic and the synthetic are blurred. Built with Unity, Force Field VR estimates an entire campaign run though will take around two to three hours.
Exclusive to Samsung Gear VR, the title will support a standard gamepad as well as the newly released Gear VR controller. Term1nal will retail for $7.99 USD or €7.99 EUR.
