Symmetrical, the developers behind fantasy-horror virtual reality (VR) adventure title Gates of Nowhere have announced that the title is ready to eave Early Access and head into its full release. The Early Access version has been available for players to test out since September 2017, but now the team behind its creation believe it is ready for the big leagues.
Gates of Nowhere puts the player in the role of Lothar, who is what is known as a Seeker, someone who is trying to find and recover the lost knowledge of Alchemy. As such, the player will need to search a vast dungeon to find what you seek.
The player starts the adventure inside a prison, but one that has been long abandoned, featuring rotting doors and rusting bars. Descending through the depths, you will find dangerous monsters that have taken up residence in the dark, musty corridors, as well as puzzles that bar your way.
There are four levels, which have been given suitably atmospheric names, such as The Awakening, Through the Dark, Water Works and Inferno. Within each level there are a variety of monsters and other creatures to find and fight against. There are ten different weapons types to try out to find a play style that best fits you.
Considering that the player character is searching for lost alchemical knowledge its no surprise that you can find various useful items and ingredients, which can be combined to create powerful alchemical weaponry or magic spells.
Gates of Nowhere is out now on Steam for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, and is a room-scale experience which requires at least 2.5m by 2.5m for the best play experience. It is normally priced at £1059 (GBP), but it currently available with a 20% launch discount, bringing the price down to £8.47.
