About Alchemist Defender VR

In this video game, you take on the role of a master alchemist on his quest for Magnum Opus, the discovery of the Philosopher’s Stone. You will have to protect your discoveries from the incoming waves of enemies (of various species, such as Rat-Humanoid, and Skeleton enemies with variations like Runners, Shamans and Berserkers) that tries to rob the secret to the source of infinite gold and immortality.

Alchemist Defender is still in early access, and currently features 2 full levels, with 18 waves of enemies each. Players play this game mainly from god view perspective, with the actions taking place on a battlefield. The game is played by deploying 3 types of turrets on the battlefield, each with their own cons and pros: the Fast cannon is your standard, quick firing weapon, Frost slows down nearby enemies, and Mortar delivers a slow but massive area of splash damage, inflicting (lesser) damage to multiple enemies at one attack. Player can also relocate the turrets, or get involve directly in the combat, by using the temporary first person combat mode and attack them using War Hammer, Spiked Mace or ranged weapons like a Musketoon style firing arm and Explosive Crossbow. .

Alchemist Defender will also see release on the Oculus Rift (I have no idea if this imminent update will add Oculus Rift support, we will have to wait to find out), and maybe Playstation VR as well.
