Playsnak has launched its second virtual reality (VR) title on Steam, coming back with a vengeance. Wanted Killer VR, announced last month, is now available as an Early Access title, compatible with the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality head-mounted displays (HMDs).
From Berlin-based developer Playsnak, Wanted Killer VR throws the player into a chaotic world full of blazing-guns as they attempt to take down the evil GENETIC MINDS Corp. The Steam Early Access version of Wanted Killer VR casts the player as Ricky; one of four playable characters currently being developed for the final release edition of the videogame.
As you blast through 15 missions, you’ll have an arsenal of upgradeable weapons at your disposal, as well as the time-based skills such as teleportation. However, the abilities aren’t provided in place of smooth locomotion as with many VR titles; Wanted Killer VR is a full 360-degree experience with manual movement controls in addition to optional teleportation.
“Our goal is put players right at the heart of white-knuckle action sequences. You really are free to find your own flow and get creative in how you put the game’s innovative weapons to work,” stated Game Director P.J. Esteves.
Further setting Wanted Killer VR apart from the crowd, the videogame has a unique visual style that seems to imitate the cel shading technique that was popular at the turn of the century, featuring bright colours and a cartoonish aesthetic.
Founder and CEO of Playsnak, Paha Schulz, said: “We couldn’t be happier with how Wanted Killer VR is shaping up, and we’re really excited to continue development with input from Early Access players. The team has done an amazing job of creating a world where frenetic gameplay and individual tactical choice go hand-in-hand, and we can’t wait to hear what people think.”
Wanted Killer VR is available to download now via Steam Early Access for $9.99 USD, compatible with the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality HMDs, and is also coming soon to the Oculus Store.
