DreamSail Games Announces VR Mech Game “IOTA Project” for HTC Vive/Oculus Rift


A new room scale VR mech videogame has just been revealed by developer DreamSail Games by the name of IOTA Project. As you will expect, this game puts you in the shoes of a mech pilot, whereby you will be operating six-stories tall robots. Your objective is to defend the city and take down the opposing mechs who has taken over.
The developer also shared some gameplay mechanics of the game.


Melee Combat

In this game, you will be punching enemy robots and building with your mech fists. The fist movement has been given a slight delay to simulate the heavy weight of operating the metal hand. Apparently you will be able to launch Rocket Launcher too.

Locomotion

The cockpit frame has alleviate motion sickness, allowing the developer to implement artificial movement. Apparently the internal feedback has been rather positive, but they are also open to other movement type too.

Special Abilities

You have 3 types of special abilities; Core Blast unleashes a volley of rockets, Electro Blast sends out a shockwave to stun enemies and send things flying, and lastly the Laser, a beam of high powered energy.


No release details has been set yet, but I will get back once we got more news (its scheduled to launch on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift). Meanwhile, check out some videos below.
