Twisted Pixel Games and Oculus Studios have worked on a number of videogames over the years such as Wilson’s Heart and Defector. In 2018 the studio released an on-rails shooter for Oculus Go and Gear VR called B-Team which has now been confirmed to be coming to Oculus Quest next week.
Offering over the top action and cheesy acting reminiscent of80s b-movies, Twisted Pixel Games’ B-Team puts you in the midst of an alien invasion where the world’s elite forces have been demolished so now it’s up to you and your squad.
The original B-Team only had 3DoF controls to work with, so segments were split between on-rails levels where you dodge left and right as well as stationary areas for wave shooting. That basic premise remains but the studio does look to have catered for Oculus Quest’s 6DoF controllers for a more immersive gameplay experience. It’s not purely shooting and running either, as there are puzzles to solve to get that grey matter working.
You’ll be able to choose from one of four characters, each offering their own special powers and weapons which can help on specific areas. To ensure the gameplay doesn’t get stagnant B-Team has randomized levels and waves of enemies.
B-Team also features special guest appearances by Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja, Platoon Leader), Eric Roberts (Best of the Best, The Dark Knight), Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien, Martial Law), Don “The Dragon” Wilson (Bloodfist, Batman Forever), and Fred “The Hammer” Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn, M*A*S*H).
With B-Team slated for release on 26th March Oculus Quest owners are going to have a few titles to choose from, with Fireproof Games’ The Room VR: A Dark Matter and Down The Rabbit Hole by Cortopia Studios arriving that same day. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Twisted Pixel Games and the Facebook Game Developers Showcase, reporting back with the latest updates.
