The Myth of Theseus & the Minotaur in VR

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.

Watch the 360° teaser trailer:

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 features:

• 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

“Forge Reply is investing significant resources in the Virtual and Augmented Reality solutions for the business market.

Virtual Reality is the perfect platform for Theseus and the team is working hard to deliver an immersive and compelling experience.”

About the game

What's up?
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (6 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (6 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (6 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (9 Hours ago)
