Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams, today announced their first major VR game today for PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus VR headset.
“The Assembly is a mysterious VR adventure game that we have designed for VR from day one,” he says. “The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR. For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices. Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.”
In the story, written by Tom Jubert, players are flung into the underground world of The Assembly, a secretive collection of scientists, academics and engineers who believe morality in society is preventing scientific advancement and are committed to discovering a universal theory of everything, at any cost.
