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

@Moonwalker: i'd like them to make the story make some sense and be complete before adding any of this side stuff. It was such a disjointed mess (17 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: Because the side quests in this one...hoo boy....the worst kind of fetch bullshit there is. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: Can't argue with that, it really was quite a disappontment in the end. If they would annouce that they are actually adding fun and meaningful side quests....that be great and sorely needed. (1 Hour ago)
@alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (2 Hours ago)
that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (2 Hours ago)
a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (2 Hours ago)
