VR Car Chase “DIRE” Demo Now Available on Itch.io
Foretell Studios, a virtual reality gaming studio, has launched a free demo version of DIRE, a VR car chase that the creators describe as a driving experience happening in a graphic novel. The free demo is available for download on direthegame.itch.io/dire.
The game, which will be released regularly in volumes, features a high-intensity metal soundtrack and graphic novel visual style. DIRE features a single mother who is on a dire escape from a violent past and a giant toxic sandstorm. Players feel like they are living in a comic book with danger coming from every angle. Players need to rely on the mirrors to stay safe while driving.
“We took our style inspiration from Frank Miller’s Sin City and combined that with the intensity of a Mad Max car chase,” said Tony Kao, Lead Designer of DIRE.
DIRE was featured in the Playcrafting Showcase at the 2017 Five Points Festival in New York City, was nominated for a ’16 BIT Award in New York City and was featured in the Intel University 2016 Games Showcase.
