Announced back in March this year and developed by Polish indie videogame studio 10Ants Hill, Racket Fury is the perfect videogame for you if you love virtual reality (VR) or ping pong/table tennis. Set in a futuristic sci-fi setting your objective in the single-player campaign is to beat 16 opponents in order to get into the Division of Steel – a famous and prestigious team in Racket Fury. The online multiplayer game mode allows players to play one-on-one with other Racket Fury players from around the world.
10Ants Hill put professional table tennis players in motion capture suits in order to make the animations of the robots you’re playing against are realistic as possible. Similarly, the ball will behave exactly the same way as in real life. The feedback they received from players who tried it was that the added realism and simulation made it much more fun.
Released on the 20th of July on Steam in early access, Racket Fury is available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift though it looks like 10Ants Hill might be bringing it to PlayStation VR in the near future as well. VRFocus spoke to Pawel Nitta, PR and Community Manager at 10Ants Hill about the videogame. Watch the video below to find out more.
