Forge Reply will release later this year their VR action-adventure title Theseus. It is a new interpretation of the Greek myth of the Minotaur with a cinematic approach. First screens, teaser and a few more details inside.
Live the Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur Like Never Before – in Virtual Reality
“Explore your darkness”
MILAN, Italy (Feb. 16, 2017) – From the developers of Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf, Forge Reply presents another new interpretation of an immortal tale in Theseus.
Theseus is a dark and mature representation of the Greek myth of the Minotaur, designed specifically for Virtual Reality.
The 360 video works properly on Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Opera on desktop computers – YouTube app on Android and iOS. For a more engaging experience, experience it with a Cardboard.
You wake up alone, stranded in a hostile, mysterious place. With Ariadne’s voice as your only guide, you explore alleys and chambers, venturing deep into the heart of the Labyrinth. In the distance, you can see a pillar of light. It shines in the darkness, beckoning you to go ever forward…
You have the chance to unveil the truth behind the Labyrinth, but soon you shall discover that you are not alone. The mighty Minotaur is the ruler of this world, and you are not a welcomed visitor.
• Theseus’ myth revisited in a fresh, innovative way
• Story-driven action adventure with a dark tone
• A cinematic approach to Virtual Reality
• Face the Minotaur and fight his minions
• Discover the truth behind your quest for survival

@KORNdog: Grift just doesn't want to admit it, because his orgasm game is based on lootcrates. (55 minutes ago)
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (8 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (8 Hours ago)
They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (8 Hours ago)
I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (8 Hours ago)
But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (8 Hours ago)
@Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (8 Hours ago)
