SteamHammerVR – The Rogue Apprentice – London 1892 is a brand new adventure VR title that just got released on Steam in Early Access form.
SteamHammerVR is set in Victorian London 1892, currently under the threat of a Professor Rattwurm, who is trying to enslave the fine English people using his clockwork automatons.
In this game, you will play as a character who has to save the town using steam powered weapons and gadgets that are created by Doctor Obadiah Springhorn. Dr Springhorn’s head command centre is located in the Airship “Horndenburg”, where the story unfolds as you plan your strategy and also to practice all the weapons that are in your possession. You may have only 2 hands with your steam powered Exo-Suit, but you are equipped with 6 unique and upgradable weapons that you can easily switch between during battle:
- Steam Hammer
- Steam Cannon
- Magnet Beam
- Rotor Saw
- Tesla Ray
- The Rail Gun
In this game, you will embark on various missions, destroying various steam-powered robots, including those in the air and some resembling the real life 4 legged animals.
Losing a mission brings you back to the Hordenburg, where you will get your suit repaired and for you to reorganise and try again.
This game is currently in Early Access, and at the moment only 3 out of 10 missions of the Story Mode are included: Streets of London, Skillington Arms and the Tower of London.
Seek and Destroy mode will be releasing soon, followed by the remaining missions over the 60 days EA period. A multiplayer mode is also planned for the future as well.
