MADSOFT Games and OutOfBounds Software Solutions Inc. have joined together to announce that VRNinja, their first virtual reality (VR) title, will be coming to the Oculus Store this July, and is already looking for support in its Steam Green Light campaign for the HTC Vive version.
VRNinja is a videogame where players can simulate being a ninja through a list of challenges in three scenic Japanese environments to experience, and two modes of play. Weapons will be thrown your way, and it is up to the player to make use of the head-mounted display’s (HMD) head tracking to duck and dodge in this purely defensive title.
The three typically Japanese environments include the Dojo, where you can train and hone your skills, the Hot Springs, where clouds of steam obscure your vision of the weapons flying towards you, and the night, where the only thing to lighting the scene is the moon and so you will have to heavily depend on your sense of hearing to not be impaled.
There are four weapons to dodge, including the Kunai, where dozens of them will come flying at you, Bombs, which vary in effectiveness and contents, Shuriken, which with its absence would make a ninja title the least authentic it could ever be, and Rockets, which come at you like fireworks.
VRNinja has only just been announced to be coming to the Oculus Store for the Oculus Rift HMD, planned to arrive this July. Through the Steam Greenlight campaign, VRNinja will also be releasing as a HTC Vive title depending on its support. Both versions will be priced at $9.99 (USD), and are available on its official website.
