The darkly comedic VR game returns for another mind-bending adventure.
Developer Tender Claws (The Under Presents) today announced that an official sequel for its mind-bending VR game Virtual Virtual Reality is coming soon to the Meta Quest 2, Oculus Rift, and SteamVR. Originally released in 2017 on a myriad of VR headsets, including the now-defunct Daydream and GearVR platforms, the narrative-driven experience took players on a reality-hopping adventure unlike anything available on VR headsets at that time.
Arriving later this month on the aforementioned platforms, the surprise sequel will return you to the darkly comedic dystopian world of Virtual Virtual Reality where you’ll embark on a new adventure set throughout a peaceful metaverse on the verge of collapse.
“VVR2 introduces players to the newest virtual network: the peaceful retirement metaverse of Scottsdale, where both humans and AIs have uploaded their consciousness for a digital afterlife,” said the company in an official release. “As players begin settling into this virtual utopia, suddenly, Scottsdale’s VC funding is pulled and its servers begin to shut down one by one. Players have no choice but to outrun the data deletion – ultimately escaping the metaverse and finding a new home back in meatspace.“
According to Tender Claws, Virtual Virtual Reality 2 will introduce new gameplay mechanics that allow you to interact with other NPCs and the virtual world of Scottsdale in unique ways. Your goal is to save as many residents of the disintegrating metaverse as you can by offering them refuge inside your enormous mech. Each new recruit brings their own unique talents—and drama—to your ever-growing team.
Virtual Virtual Reality 2 will be available on February 10th on Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR for $29.99.You can also expect new original songs and plenty of dark comedy throughout the roughly 10-hour adventure. For more information visit here.
