South Korean indie game developer BLENS recently showcased their groundbreaking virtual reality creations at Gamescom 2023 in Germany. Showcasing their flagship VR game, OctoRaid VR, BLENS demonstrated a remarkable fusion of cross-platform gaming and captivating gameplay mechanics.
Founded in 2021 as a university start-up club, BLENS has defied the odds to carve a niche in the competitive indie game development landscape.
Surmounting hurdles like limited resources and workforce, their unwavering commitment to crafting immersive VR experiences led them to a significant partnership with Smilegate Game Company. This collaboration paved the way for the release of OctoRaid VR on China’s Jammer VR platform.
OctoRaid VR, a Unique Convergence of Virtual Realms
Scheduled for a September 2023 launch, OctoRaid VR is a testament to BLENS’ creative ingenuity. The game introduces an intriguing blend of VR and cross-platform multiplayer dynamics, inviting players into the roles of the colossal Octo or the daring Hunter characters.
In the shoes of the formidable Octo, players utilizing VR devices embark on a mission of chaos, hurling objects and even hunters to diminish the life-concept team shared by the Hunters. Emerging victorious requires the Octo team to outlast their Hunter counterparts.
For those preferring PC or mobile devices, assuming the roles of Hunters presents an opportunity for strategic gameplay.
Armed with advanced gear and jet packs with dash and grappling hook abilities, the Hunter team engages in strategic attacks while dodging and evading. Victory for the Hunters is achieved by depleting the Octo’s physical strength.
OctoRaid VR shines with its cross-platform functionality, allowing VR users and PC or mobile players to join forces in a collaborative yet competitive environment. With a capacity for up to five players in multiplayer battles, the game fosters camaraderie and competition among friends and online players.
