It’s early days, however OceanCraft might be the following nice co-op survival recreation for Oculus Quest.
An early entry model of OceanCraft hit SideQuest earlier this month, and developer FlodLab can also be hoping to carry it to App Lab quickly. For now, although, you’ll be able to attempt the surprisingly sturdy pre-release model totally free. Within the recreation, you and as much as seven different pals are tasked with surviving for so long as attainable on a raft in the midst of the ocean.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9MCRBZcchY?feature=oembed&showinfo=0&rel=0&modestbranding=1&iv_load_policy=3&playsinline=1&enablejsapi=1&w=1170&h=658]
As lots of people identified to us throughout final week’s livestream, OceanCraft is lots like Redbeet Interactive’s Raft in VR, simply boiled all the way down to the fundamentals. Gadgets for crafting float in direction of you and will be nabbed with a trusty hookshot. From there, you’ll be able to construct out new instruments like fishing rods and water purifiers, broaden your raft with new platforms and fish for meals you’ll then chop up and cook dinner. Be sure that to maintain a gradual provide of meals and water on the go otherwise you’ll finally keel over.
These are the fundamentals of just about any survival recreation, nevertheless it’s spectacular to see simply how nicely OceanCraft has already obtained them down in VR, to not point out the concepts it’s added of its personal. I actually loved the physicality of catching a fish, reeling it in after which chopping it up and cooking it earlier than chomping down. Plus there’s an excellent satisfaction to constructing out the raft from initially cramped confines into a way more workable area.
I’d wish to see the sport lean additional into VR, although. Proper now, for instance, crafting gadgets is solely a case of selecting them from the menu after which inserting them on deck with a pointer. It’d be nice to combine somewhat DIY meeting in there to make the whole lot really feel a bit extra like your personal, or to make use of nets to scoop up close by fish.
Proper now FlodLab says the sport has about an hour of content material to it and that’s actually true. By the top of our stream, myself and UploadVR Video Editor Zeena Al-Obaidi had created a fairly sustainable ecosystem that didn’t put up a lot struggle (Zeena’s forgetfulness not withstanding), so I’m excited to see the methods FlodLab will broaden on these promising foundations.
