Independent developer, Evocat Games, has released their virtual virtual (VR) title Nemesis Realms on Steam after a successful time in Early Access on the platform.
The sequel to the award-winning Nemesis Perspective, this new title is a local multiplayer experience that puts a team of heroes playing on a PC, against a big boss who is controlled by another player in VR on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Windows Mixed Reality (MR). With support for up to five players in total, one of whom is the big boss, the title is taking the concept of party games and mixing it up in an exciting new way to support the technology of today.
Nemesis Realms is releasing with three stages that each feature a unique gameplay mechanic and will test the players ability to form the ultimate team and take down the boss. With diverse environments and power-ups to swing the battle in the favour of the heroes, players will have to make use of everything they have in order to overpower the boss that challenges them.
“Nemesis Realms brings out the multiplayer party side of the seemingly isolated VR experience,” said Leevi Pääkkönen, CEO of Evocat Games. “Coming out of Early Access the game is more optimized and polished, and gives players an additional action-packed stage. Based on community feedback during Early Access we’ve also added in a pool of custom variables and power-ups so players can scale the scope and length of their battles the way they want.”
The asymmetrical design of Nemesis Realms means that players will find lots of opportunities to create memorable moments as they play. Be it on the team of the heroes or as the big boss in VR, the chance to do something that will make the group laugh, cheer or react in a big way will be one of the main reasons to keep playing.
Founded back in 2017, Evocat Games is a Finnish independent startup studio pioneering in asymmetric VR multiplayer games. After the success of their debut title, Nemesis Perspective, the team hopes for the same success with this new title Nemesis Realms.
