Virtual reality (VR) exclusive Kartong – Death by Cardboard! is now available via Steam Early Access for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift players. Also available via Viveport and Oculus Home, Kartong – Death by Cardboard! puts players up against evil experiments inside the miniature city of Kartong.
In Kartong – Death by Cardboard!, players find themselves shrunk to the size of a toilet paper roll and trapped in a maze of evil toys. Your life now depends on a mediocre weapon made from office supplies, with your outlook not being particularly rosey.
A first-person shooter (FPS) videogame, Kartong – Death by Cardboard! blends sequences of action and stealth into a world of miniaturised mayhem. With its 15 different difficulty levels, randomised city maps and toy enemies, the Early Access edition of the videogame is fully playable from start to finish.
“The game has a rogue-lite gameplay and your goal is to escape the city of Kartong, which just happens to be a maze filled with evil toys, tiny traps and weird experiments,” explains Robert Johansson, Level Designer at SVRVIVE Studios.
