Niche Spotlight – GORN

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is GORN, a VR gladiator game by Free Lives (developers of Broforce) and Devolver Digital.

GORN gained a fairly sizable following during its time in Early Access, and just recently received a full release. Use an arsenal of brutal melee weapons to slaughter endless waves of rival gladiators, complete with hilariously wonky physics and copious amounts of gore. The game supports Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and will also be coming to the Valve Index sometime after it launches. You can check out a trailer above.

GORN is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99, and is currently 25% off.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.

If you’re a developer and want your game showcased on Niche Spotlight, please contact us!
