NightTime Terrors to Release on Samsung’s Gear VR

Previously VRFocus reported on the release of VR Bits’ new virtual reality (VR) videogame NightTime Terrors release for Oculus Rift. Now, the company has unveiled its plans to work on a version for Samsung’s Gear VR head-mounted display (HMD). The videogame is a top-down experience in which players have to fend off hordes of plush toys.

NightTime Terrors is set inside a child’s nightmare in which one toy must fend off the dark twisted figures. Using a wide array of weapons the user must avoid being killed by shooting the enemies. What started off as a weekend development project eventually evolved into a full release which aims to show that VR videogames don’t have to be first-person to work effectively. Weapons in the videogame include a tommy gun, rocket launcher, shotgun and a mini-gun. Each type of enemy has a different resilience to damage, so it is important to use the appropriate power-ups and weapons for different enemies.

In a newsletter, VR Bits stated that they have learned a great deal about mobile and desktop optimisation including how to achieve a much better performance from developing NightTime Terrors. The title is being also used to cross-fund its other project Darkfield VR.

VR Bits has released the title on PC with support for the second Oculus Rift development kit (DK2) head-mounted display (HMD). will keep you updated on the videogame’s progress.
