Video game developer, Forge Reply is proud to announce that Greek Myths and video games will once again combine for a virtual reality experience and that game is called Theseus.
For those who don’t know the original myth, the Greek hero Theseus is sent to the Labyrinth to kill the Minotaur (a half-man-half-bull creature). Theseus kills the Minotaur and uses string to escape the Labyrinth. Forge Reply’s version however, takes the myth to a dark and disturbing new place with virtual reality for a more immersive experience.
The player wakes up alone in the dark, trapped in a mysterious and frightening place. A mysterious voice by the name of Adriane is your only guide through the darkness and the player wanders through chambers and alleys, venturing deep into the heart of the Labyrinth. Eventually, the player comes across a pillar of light and it beckons you to come closer. The player may just have discovered the truth of the Labyrinth, but they soon realise that they are not alone. With them is the horrifying Minotaur who is the lord of this domain, and that it despises visitors.
“Forge Reply is investing significant resources in the Virtual and Augmented Reality solutions for the business market. Theseus represents the logical next step and the first VR piece of content that the studio has developed for gamers and enthusiasts. Virtual Reality is the perfect platform for Theseus and the team is working hard to deliver an immersive and compelling experience,” said Flippo Rizzante, Forge Reply CTO in a press release.
Forge Reply is the game studio of the Reply group and develops games for mobile devices, PC and consoles. Aside from the upcoming Theseus, Forge Reply has developed other games like Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf RPG and the multiplayer space shooter In Space We Brawl. While there isn’t a release date set for Theseus, this game could be the next Amnesia in both atmosphere and success.
