Ven Is A Promising New VR Platformer Like Astro Bot Or Moss

Effectively, this appears to have sprung up out of nowhere. Poland-based Monologic Video games simply introduced a brand new VR journey sport named Ven, amd it appears to be like pleasant.

A quick teaser trailer for Ven was revealed yesterday. Much like video games like Astro Bot or Moss, it’s a platformer through which gamers embody one character in first-person after which management one other in third-person. Forged as an intergalactic police officer on the hunt of some harmful fugitives, you meet Ven, a younger fox-like creature out to guard his residence planet of Runnies (what a reputation).


Collectively you’ll enterprise throughout the planet to avoid wasting Ven’s companions. That’ll imply leaping throughout platforms and navigating obstacles. Curiously, the sport is performed with tracked movement controllers, permitting you to achieve into Ven’s world and work together with him immediately.

The trailer largely exhibits off Ven’s leaping talents, although it does look he’s armed with some form of melee weapon.

Although you won’t suppose third-person platformers would work nicely in VR, they typically show to be a few of the most immersive and compelling titles on the market.

Hopefully, Ven may be capable of pull off one thing comparable.
