Horror-Comedy Hello Puppets! Continues Performance on Steam

Avatar

Published

on

Otherworld Interactive loves to scare virtual reality (VR) gamers, originally launching Sisters for mobile VR and then Hello Puppets! arrived for Oculus Rift last year. Just in time for the spooky season, the studio has now expanded Hello Puppets! support to Steam.

Hello Puppets

There’s nothing like a dead-eye puppet suddenly appearing in your peripheral vision and with Hello Puppets! there are loads to watch out for. With a back story involving a failed children’s show called Mortimer’s Handeemen which used hand puppets, a fire destroying the studio killing eight people and a magic spell gone wrong, the scene is set for an amusingly terrifying experience.

You play a college reporter who goes to the dilapidated location to see if the rumours that it’s haunted are true. Events take a turn for the worse where you end up with a puppet called Scout attached to your non-dominant hand. The foul-mouthed sentient puppet might swear a lot but she’s there to help you, and as the developer says, only: “slightly less evil” than all the other murderous puppets.

Hello Puppets! is filled with puzzles to solve as you look for a way to escape the horror , and the jump scares. A “Puppet Mode” will let you see the world from Scout’s eyes, with the new perspective helping to solve puzzles, uncover secrets and escape the many enemies lurking in the dark.

Hello Puppets

You’ll also have to watch out how you treat Scout as she remembers your interactions, depending on what she thinks of you she’ll react differently.

Hello Puppets! is available now via Steam for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index, with a 10% discount available until 29th October. For further updates from Otherworld Interactive, keep reading VRFocus.

Somnium Space’s Next Updates to Add Buildable Worlds, Web Access & More

The race is definitely on to see who can create the biggest and most impressive social worlds, whether that’s Sansar, Facebook Horizon, VRChat, Sensorium Galaxy and others. Somnium Space has been working in this space for several years now and today announced a major series of updates which will give users more freedom to create, expand and invite people inside their worlds.

Somnium Space

There are three main components being rolled out over the next few months, with the most important for current users being Somnium Space Worlds. If you already own a parcel of digital land then the feature will allow you to broaden your creative mind, building a new interactive world for others to join.

Created by utilizing the Somnium UnitySDK, these worlds can make use of Unity components such as custom scripts, shaders and other advanced creative tools. Build your own arcade or even a multiplayer game for other Somnium Space players to try out. The only limit to the size of the worlds is the land parcel size you already own. There will be three worlds available: Small (75MB), Medium (200MB) and Extra Large (500MB). Somnium Space Worlds is expected to launch in Q1 2021.

A virtual world needs to attract as many people as possible to build a vibrant ecosystem, so making it as easily accessible as possible is a must. Somnium Space already allows both VR players on PC VR headsets and non-VR players via desktop to interact but in December this will go a stage further with Somnium Space Web. Every piece of land – or Parcel as it’s termed – will get a permanent link so it can be directly accessed via the web.

Somnium Space Worlds

The feature will offer cross-platform live voice-enabled multiplayer so that those accessing the parcel via a browser can still chat and interact with those using the native Somnium VR client.

“Mobile VR support? WebXR? Of course! We are taking Web experience to the next level. You will be able to visit your WEB PARCEL in Virtual Reality. Simply use VR compatible browser such as Mozilla or Oculus Browser and dive into your PARCEL right away. No installation nor waiting times! VR anywhere, anytime! Fire up your Oculus Quests!,” notes a blog post.

And starting on 1st November will be Somnium Space’s Second Land Offering (SLO), selling a total of 350 land Parcels and 70 Somnium Worlds tokens. For further updates on this expanding virtual universe, keep reading VRFocus.

Captain Toonhead vs the Punks from Outer Space Unleashes FPS Tower Defense in 2021

Avatar

Published

on

Years ago titles like Defense Grid 2: Enhanced VR Edition brought classic tower defence gaming to headsets but there’s been a lull of late. Developers like Teravision Games are looking to change that whilst tailoring the genre to VR, combining it with first-person shooter (FPS) action for its upcoming project Captain Toonhead vs the Punks from Outer Space.

Captain Toonhead

Revealing the first gameplay trailer today, Captain Toonhead vs the Punks from Outer Space is a quirky single-player adventure where you’re cast as the titular character who teams up with a cartoon-obsessed spaceship technician called Elliot Salazar to save the world from Earth’s last dictator, Nikolas Voorhees.

You’ll need to defend your base from an onslaught of technologically-enhanced creatures from copter cats and T-Rexes to merciless cyberchickens. You’ll be able to place and upgrade and variety of towers and then head directly into battle with a unique range of weaponry or jump into one of the towers.

“Captain Toonhead started with a fantasy,” said Enrique Fuentes, CEO of Teravision Games in a statement. “How awesome would it feel to experience a tower defence if you were fighting waves of enemies from the front lines, in first-person — while fully immersed in VR?”

Captain Toonhead

“It was very important to us to make something genuine to who we are as developers,” added Fuentes, “so we didn’t shy away from including some Latin American elements like our super-powerful chancla and a piñata-launching tower. Even our hero was designed to be a true reflection of us and our love for geek culture. All of us here at Teravision Games are ‘toonheads’, and hopefully we created something that many other toonheads out there will enjoy.”

Captain Toonhead vs the Punks from Outer Space will support Oculus Rift/Rift S, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR when it launches in the first half of 2021. As Teravision Games release further details VRFocus will let you know.
