One of the first games designed specifically to take advantage of the new Windows Mixed Reality headsets from participating OEMs has launched. It’s called Danger Goat and it’s from developer nDreams VR.
The game is designed where you’re supposed to help guide the goat across 28 different levels, ranging from forests to mountains to open plains. The objective is to help the goat get back into space.
A launch trailer gives you a small idea of what the gameplay is like, but it’s mostly composed of cinematics so it might be tough to properly understand the actual gameplay.
Based on the press release description, players will use their motion wands to manipulate the environment to help the goat get to safety.
It’s a little bit like a new-age version of Lemmings, except instead of having different kinds of special properties to endow upon the green-haired proletarians, you instead use the wands to knock over structures, sabotage traps, help the goat get across platforms, and eventually get to the end of the stage.
I don’t know if this is the kind of game that would really convince gamers to go out and grab a Mixed Reality Headset for Windows, but if you already own one of the new headsets and you’re in desperate need of software for it, there’s Danger Goat.
One thing absolutely needs to be made clear: they’re going to need real games for the MRH devices if they want to actually convince people to pick one up. The sad reality, however, is that there aren’t any real games for the standard VR headsets, other than maybe Superhot VR.
So basically it’s going to be an uphill struggle convincing gamers to dump hundreds of more dollars into the VR fad when the standard VR headsets are still being under-utilized when it comes to proper software support.
