VR games tend to be slower-paced, mainly when they are first-person shooters. Thankfully, those looking to experience something a bit faster can look forward to the Giant Scam industries' latest project, Snapshot VR.
Snapshot VR is an arena shooter set in the immersive world of virtual reality that promises to bring the fast and frenetic world of professional-level paintballing to a computer near you.
Featuring teams upwards of 5on5, Snapshot VR matches average out at 45 seconds, meaning speed fiends with an itchy trigger finger or those used to actual paintball will enjoy their time in the frenzy filled arenas of Snapshot VR.
For those not familiar with paintball, the term Snapshot originates from Snap Shooting or an essential skill associated with real-life paintballing which refers to being able to quickly and efficiently fire from cover. In other words, Snapshot VR strives in recreating the adrenaline-filled fun associated with real-life paintballing, minus all the cleanup and prep work.
To really sell the authentic feel of paintballing, Snapshot VR will feature officially licensed venues from the National Xball League or NXL. Additionally, players will be able to craft their own maps using the included 2D paintball field creator.
“We are super excited for players to play Snapshot VR and experience what we’ve been working so hard on,” said Jesse Keogh, Founder and Lead Engineer at Giant Scam (with a decade of experience in competitive paintball as both a player and coach). “We wanted to make a game that truly feels like playing paintball — fast-paced rounds, one-shot kills, rapid-fire projectiles, no respawns — but isn’t subject to some of the limitations of the real-life sport.”

Snapshot VR will be available on Steam early access on Steam and Viveport this coming August.
