VIRUSH is a technophilic packet-snatching’ virus-killing arcade-style game for Vive. Featuring a pumping electronic soundtrack and played in spherical/360 degrees with your Vive controller.

 
 
 

Background

Virush started with a simple premise. Let’s design a game for google daydream that’s built for the controller. As the first dedicated controller for mobile vr we knew it would create new opportunities & challenges for interaction and we wanted to explore that space. We decided that our best approach was to use an existing premise to inspire our design. Allowing us more time to focus on design issues unique to Daydream. So we turned to the ever inspirational Nokia Snake as a place to start. Several of our team have a fondness for Snake and we felt it would be a natural for VR. Little did we know that just as we would end our development cycle Tommy Palm from Resolution games would give a talk saying that VR is in the Nokia snake phase.

 
 
 
 

Partners

HTC is supporting this in a big way and we'd like for you (and Polygon) to have the exclusive. They've added new content for this new release; this is also an idea from their employee Cale Bradbury (who is probably a little bit obsessed with snakes, to be honest: his last snake related game was the flash hit Snakes on a Cartesian Plane).
