Independent developer and publisher Wales Interactive is releasing its latest VR game, the time-travelling wave shooter Time Carnage, on Steam this Tuesday with official Windows Mixed Reality support. A trailer for which you can watch above. I’m posting this article a couple of days early because after launch Time Carnage will cost £14.99 (UK) / €19.99 (EU) / $19.99 (US), but if you’re quick and pre-purchase it on Steam now you’ll get a 20% discount and only have to pay £11.99 (UK) / €15.99 (EU) / $15.99 (US). UPDATE: The 20% discount has been extended until April 24th!
I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to pre-purchase a wave shooter and waiting until there are at least some positive user reviews first. However, Wales Interactive is a well known award-winning developer and its previous VR game, the horror movie tie-in Don’t Knock Twice, has got 77% positive reviews on Steam. (Unfortunately it hasn’t got official Windows Mixed Reality support yet though.) So Time Carnage has got higher expectations than the average wave shooters that are churned out on Steam every week.
You can read more info about Time Carnage in the following description from its Steam page:
ABOUT THIS GAME
Time Carnage is a frantic VR survival wave shooter for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Travel through time and wreak havoc through worlds swarming with dinosaurs, monsters, robots and zombies.
Choose your loadout wisely as you’ll manically swap out active guns on the fly in a 16-tier Campaign or Custom Arcade Mode complete with perks, challenges and mystery items. Immerse yourself in a post-apocalyptic world, prehistoric jungle, icy wasteland and a futuristic metropolis.
For each zone you’ll handpick a selection of guns to suit your play style and battle with a timed-reload system as you unlock an arsenal of over 25 mix-and-match dual wielding weapons.
Finding it too challenging? Keep an eye out for a Time Paradox — they might just give you an unfair advantage!

- Unlock, upgrade and mix-and-match over 25 dual wielding weapons!
- A frenzy inducing timed-reload system. Shoot, drop, switch, repeat!
- Realistic and dynamic environments with 16 unique locations
