Back in February, the VR horror shooter Into The Darkness was first announced. Since then, eager fans have been waiting patiently for further updates. In the first of several videos to come out, the developers are releasing “overview” videos to share the progress with Into The Darkness.
The Double-Barreled Cannon of Doom
The video series will showcase various aspects of the game to come. These can range from experimenting with the physics mechanics, combat demonstrations, and the dark corners of the world.
The first video presents the powerful double-barrel shotgun. Apparently a frequent request from hungry fans, the video displays the weapon in all of its glorious usefulness. It can be utilized as a blunt weapon to knock robotic foes down, blast deadly shots from a certain critical distance, and be held as a defensive item to fend off against aggressive adversaries. The anticipation elevates for the double-barrel shotty with the rockin’ music to back up the action scenes.
What is Into The Darkness?
Into The Darkness blasts the player into the near future. Humanity is attempting immortality; in other words, recent science experiments permit the process of transferring human consciousness onto machines. As Agent Frank, you’re on a mission to investigate a facility that specializes in the said process, dubbed “transhumanism”. As fate would have it, trouble begins to stir beyond the shadows.
With a physics-based system, Into The Darkness allows the player to mess around with the game’s sandbox. For one thing, you can climb and hold onto a railing with one hand while the other hand can gun down an enemy. Another example is simply breaking the glass to traverse from one window to another.
Some of its VR horror shooter gameplay is similar to Stress Level Zero’s experimental VR experience, BONEWORKS. Into The Darkness seems to be more fast-paced and chaotic than the previously mentioned title (think BONEWORKS with a dash, slash, and DOOM Eternal greatest action moments). Be sure to keep a lookout for the other videos to eventually release by going to the publisher’s (GameBoom VR) YouTube channel here.
