As I still can’t find any information about Defend The Bits VR I’ll skip to the next game on the Windows Mixed Reality “Games & Entertainment” poster, a first-person VR horror dungeon crawler called Dreadhalls by independent developer White Door Games, which can be played using either motion controls, a joypad or keyboard & mouse. You can watch a trailer for it above. I haven’t played the game myself so I’ll just post the developer’s factsheet about it below:
Dreadhalls is a horror dungeon crawler for Virtual Reality. You are trapped deep inside a massive dungeon. Explore it, survive it, and find a way to escape. Your only weapons will be stealth, your own courage, and a faint light.
Dreadhalls was originally developed for the 2013 VR Jam game contest organized by Oculus VR and Indiecade, where it obtained an Honorable Mention. Its inspirations come from the survival horror and roguelike genres, as well as classic dungeon crawlers such as Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Master.
- Experience a new kind of immersive horror. In VR, your brain will be tricked into believing you really are inside a dark, damp dungeon, no matter where you look.
- Levels in Dreadhalls are procedurally generated. Every time you play, the map will be different, so you’ll never know what to expect next.
- Listen to your surroundings! Dreadhalls combines positional audio cues and an original soundtrack to build its immersive soundscape.
- Survival gameplay. Hide and run from the creatures that creep in the darkness. Find oil to keep your light fed. Surviving in a dungeon is not an easy task!
