VR0GU3™ is a virtual reality sci-fi shooter with rogue-like influences for the HTC Vive.
Please note that the Unapologetic Hardcore VR Edition utilizes a touchpad walking-style of movement, which will likely make you sick if you are sensitive to simulator sickness. We make no apologies for implementing touchpad walking, as our goal is to provide a "hardcore VR" experience, but if you do tend to suffer simulator sickness, we must recommend that you should not buy this game. See the bottom of this page for more information.
You have completed your infiltration mission. You now have just 15 minutes to make your way through the corridors of the labyrinthine spacestation and steal a fighter in order to make your escape.
Along the way, you'll find ammo, medical packs, and weapon upgrade kits for enhancing your handgun, as well as information access panels from which valuable intel can be extracted using your omni-tools (Vive controllers).
Each floor of the station is random, as are the spawn locations of all enemies, which means every play-through will be different.
Every kill, each intel access point and each floor you complete grants your character experience points (XP), which will enable you to level up as you progress through a game. Be aware, though, that your enemies level up with you—as you amass XP for a high score, you also make the game that much more challenging for yourself.
VR0GU3 utilizes a touchpad walking-style of movement (e.g. ONWARD). This method of VR locomotion can bring on simulator sickness if you are sensitive to it. If so, the good news is that you can harden yourself to simulator sickness in the same way sailors get their sea-legs—but hardening to simulator sickness can take a while and is not a particularly nice experience. For this reason, we do not recommend that players who are sensitive to simulator sickness buy our game — we don't think those players will enjoy it very much.
Depending on community reaction, we may introduce other locomotion systems, like teleportation, at a later date, but we have no plans to implement these at this time given the potential impact on the game's pacing and challenge — it would be difficult if not impossible to ensure a level playing field for the Leaderboards.
Having said that, we will be constantly engaging with our player community, and specifically keeping a eye on how players react to touchpad walking — that's pretty much what Early Access is all about.
Yes, VR0GU3 Early Access update v0.6.3 has been released and it brings many improvements!
We've improved the game's balance (weapon and damage mechanics, player levelling, how the intel access point bonus works, etc), fixed up the holographic effects, reworked the shooting model to improve hit detection and visibility, did a pass on the game environment assets to improve the visuals, and even added the first new unit type!
As part of the game balance review, we decided to change the goal from reaching a player level to reaching the 5th Floor of the station. This provides greater impetus for players to complete floors as quickly as possible, creating a core conflict between your desire to improve your character (by levelling up, such as through interacting with intel access points) and your weapons (by finding Weapon Upgrade kits) while amassing a high score (XP), pitted against your desire to win outright by surviving to the end.
We've also done a visuals and performance improvements pass on the game environment assets. This required us to replace every level, but you'll definitely notice a significant improvement in performance (especially those on 970s) and in how the game environments look in the new build, which we're very happy about. On a related note, the performance improvements have enabled us to field more enemies on the map at any given point, so you'll see bad guys more frequently and in greater numbers as you delve deeper into the space station.
Overall, we're happy that the game is significantly improved between last version and this one. We hope you agree!
