Dungeons have a well deserved bad rap. There’s never a good dungeon is there? It’s always full of monsters and demons and some kind of all-encompassing evil that’s plotting to take over the world, or smite the village, or make off with all your gold, your womenfolk or your children. (Sometimes all three.) They’re always dark. They’re always damp. They’re always full of moss, spiders and skeletons. Would it kill people to dispense with the floor littered with bones and install a nice plush carpet for once?
Still, if they did I suspect it wouldn’t be quite as good a location to set videogames.
Such a dungeon awaits you in Gates Of Nowhere, a fantasy virtual reality (VR) videogame for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift currently in Early Access on Steam. Developers SYMMETRICAL have crafted a title in which you busy yourself fighting hordes of horrendous creatures, looking for keys to gain access to the following area and healing yourself up with any potions you can craft from the loot scattered around the place. Not to mention the odd puzzle or two to solve.
Incidentally, you can read our preview of Gates of Nowhere right here.
We’ve teamed up with Italian indie developer SYMMETRICAL to give you the chance to win a code for the title on Steam.
