Solfar Studios released their virtual reality (VR) title In Death back in February of this year into Early Access and now the procedurally generated rougelite shooter is having a free weekend over on the Oculus Store.
Players will enter a surreal medieval setting that is full of monsters, mysteries and loot. Driving by an achievement-based progression system the advances between sessions, each run a player takes in the title is unique, with unpredictable outcomes. Inspired by classic roguelite dungeon crawlers the title is designed homage to the genre, offering a wide range of options, encounters and outcomes for players to discover and experience.
Following it’s release the title has been met with positive praise and the developers at Solfar Studios even confirmed a PlayStation VR release is in the works. For those looking to try out the title before making a purchase, In Death is currently having a free weekend on the Oculus Store allow players to drive into the roguelite title and play to their heart’s content from now until 8am BST on 4th June, 2018.
VRFocus’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham previewed In Death saying: “Not only has Solfar Studios created a videogame that’s looking visually good, In Death is one that’s easy to handle. The bow isn’t cumbersome to use, so when you do get a horde of enemies approach, firing off a few arrows in quick succession should be fairly easy. You’ll also be glad to hear that locomotion is well catered for. Rather than pulling the trigger to cock a normal arrow, pressing the ‘B’ button on Oculus Touch will bring up a teleportation arrow instead. Or there’s the teleportation shard which appears in your hand for quicker movement. Lastly, there is of course free locomotion – unlockable in the menu – for those that want it. In fact VRFocus found careful use of all three was very good in certain situations with multiple enemies.”
In Death is available now on Steam and the Oculus Store with support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. During the free weekend the title is available for only £10.99 (GBP) down from £14.99 over on he Oculus Store as well. VRFocus will be sure to bring you all the latest on In Death in the future so make sure to stay tuned for more.
