Description

VRZ:Torment is an open world first person shooter/survival puzzle solving game. The game allows you to walk around and explore a creepy infested island full of zombies and ghosts. The game was created specifically with Virtuix Omni in mind and supports it naturally. In VRZ:Torment you, along with the other experiments are trapped on an island owned by The Far Watchers. They’ve created this hell to test you, their weapons, and all their other damnable creations. They have given you a second life, and it is for you to find out how and why. Apparently, you have to flesh out the secrets of the island and try to find a way to escape. There are varies types of enemies in the game, including; ordinary zombies, kamikaze bombers, crawlers, ghosts and, the Solomonari and their minions. There are also a multitude of weapons choices and ways to kill enemies in this game. You find weapons all over the island, stashed in places like containers and pipe organs. There are AKM 47’s, shotguns, rifles, revolvers, proxy mines, grenades, katana’s, bows and arrows and axes, only naming a few. And some of the enemies are killed with electricity as well, which you accomplish with a gun called ‘From-Tesla-With-Love’. You can only get specific weapons (and some others items) as quest awards, completing the quests in the game definitely helps a lot. In addition to Virtuix Omni the game also supports Cyberith, Hardlight WIP and Oculus Touch. Find out more in-depth information from our manual, it is linked under Additional Information section.

History

We were building Steameria VR demo (a steampunk shooter game) when we found a great weapon pack with AKM and Grenade models. Irakli loved the models and over weekend created a quick demo putting AKM and grenades into a zombie FPS game, he added a few features and noted that guys at the office were playing the game for hours. After that we entered Steam Greenlight and were greenlighted the same day. We released a Steam Early Access version and received tons of positive feedback and suggestions how to improve the game. After that we sat down with Mark Rein-Hagen, known for I AM ZOMBIE and Vampire: The Masquerade, and started brainstorming on how to evolve VRZ.
