Rogue Initiative’s Crowe: The Drowned Armory has impressed since its debut last year, so VRFocus‘ Nina decided to dive in and see what she’d been missing. Available now for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Crowe: The Drowned Armory is an action-adventure videogame designed specifically for VR, and Nina lets us know what she thinks in the video below.
Crowe: The Drowned Armory takes place as aliens invade a once-peaceful society, and the protagonist, Crowe, a young village boy, must solve puzzles and uncover the mysteries of an ancient temple in order to save his race and his culture.
Pete Blumel, Crowe: The Drowned Armory’s Creative Director and studio co-founder, wants players to know this is something different; “This is not a game, ‘Crowe‘ is a cinematic interactive experience that combines puzzle solving, character interaction and combat with an epic ending built in a virtual reality world.”
Originally launched in May 2017, Crowe: The Drowned Armory has since benefitted from numerous updates. The lastest, in October 2017, saw the addition of a brand new gameplay mode: Survival Arena.
“We listened to the community feedback. Now continue the fight against a slew of updated enemy types in Crowe: Survival Arena features new environments and new enemy types! Fighting high above the valley floor, you must defend your lofty platform or teleport to another before it’s destroyed beneath your feet. In “Survival Arena”, switch between weapon types and teleport between platforms strategically while battling various enemy types,” reads the description of the update on the official Steam Store page for Crowe: The Drowned Armory.
Crowe: The Drowned Armory is available now on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, with PlayStation VR support planned for the future. To see what Nina thinks watch the video below, and for all of the latest VR news, stay on VRFocus.
