Solfar, the Icelandic VR studio founded by CCP veterans and backed by Reaktor Ventures, Inventure, NSA Ventures and more, just unveiled their next project after Everest VR. It’s called In Death and they described it as a “roguelite shooter, set in the godless afterlife.”
From the announcement:
In Death’s dream kingdom, Heaven is abandoned. Amongst its crumbling ruins, angelic creatures and demons alike have run amok. Only a courageous hero that dares to venture deep into the Afterlife will be able to restore Harmony.
A VR shooter with roguelike elements, In Death´s surreal medieval setting is presented in a procedurally generated world with monsters, mysteries and loot. Driven by an achievement-based progression system that advances between sessions, each run is unique, with unpredictable outcomes.
Those interested that have either an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive VR setup, can apply to join a closed beta on their website.
