Vertigo, Parallel Universe VR Title Preps For Launch On HTC Vive, Oculus Rift

Zulobo Productions’ Vetigo is officially set launch for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive later in the month. The new game is a virtual reality themed exploration game, featuring a bit of stealth, some crazy weapons and the journey through a futuristic facility.

The game seems to take a lot of liberties with its gameplay, mixing in first-person lightsaber combat, first-person shooting and some environmental interaction. It’s hard to put into words exactly what Vertigo is without first directing you to the game’s unorthodox but truly mesmerizing trailer that you can check out below.

The trailer music is absolutely pitch perfect for this game. It’s odd, it’s crazy, it’s strange and yet it’s all thematically fitting.

The game sees players venturing into the underground facilities of Blanck International Energy Solutions, where players will have to deal with roaming drones, loose robots, faulty equipment and a particle manipulation quantum reactor that can breach the very fabric of the universe itself.

Yes, this is one of those games that dabbles in the sort of questions and fringe sciences that Valve first introduced us to in the original Half-Life.

The major difference, of course, is that there’s a lightsaber and a laser pistol that you get to use at the exact same time!

I can’t really make heads or tails of the actual gameplay quality, but the trailer is magnificent for it to be an indie title running on the Unity 3D game engine.

Virtual Reality hasn’t really taken off quite the way that some of the media and Facebook would lead you to believe, but there are some interesting titles that pop up every once in a while that look like they might be worth checking out. Vertigo could be one of those games when it finally drops on September 30th, for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The game will be available for only $14,99. You can keep track of it if you’re interested by visiting the official Steam store page.
