Titles like Vacation Simulator, Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted and Loco Dojo showcase the variety and fun that can be had with mini-game style virtual reality (VR) experiences. Next month Oculus Rift will get another added to its roster, RADtv.
Created by Ruffian Games (best known for Halo Reach and Crackdown 2), RADtv is a compilation of 25 mini-games across five environments. Featuring both single-player and local multiplayer modes, the latter allows from 2-6 players to join in the action. From slinging vinyl at zombies, flinging food into a hungry mouth, being quick on the draw in a saloon, or speed eating burgers there’s plenty of variety in the gameplay. It’s also fast and furious, each game quickly moves into the next, sounding very reminiscent of Nintendo’s classic Warioware. This time though, you and your friends compete for the best score and maximum points to get the top spot on the leaderboard.
If you happen to be playing on your own then get involved in the Challenge mode where over 100 challenges await, with the option to unlock 24 sets of player hands for customisation – as well as a pair of feet.
“RADtv was so much fun to work on. It has easily been the most collaborative, funny and entertaining experience of my career, and that translates seamlessly to how the game plays,” said Billy Thomson, Creative Director at Ruffian Games in a statement. “We’ve created a competitive and highly social hot-seat VR party game that’s as varied in experience as it is silly and playful. Great fun to play on your own, and even better if you have your friends along for the ride with you.”
RADtv will be available through Steam for Oculus Rift/Rift S on 2nd August, retailing for £6.99 GBP/$9.99 USD/€7.99 EUR. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Ruffian Games and RADtv, reporting back with the latest updates.
