Reveal Trailer for VR Adventure Game “Eye of the Temple”

Rune Skovbo Johansen has released a reveal trailer for their upcoming room-scale VR adventure game, Eye of the Temple.

The game will be coming to Windows PC via Steam sometime next year, and supports Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality.

Eye of the Temple tasks players with exploring a treacherous temple armed with their trusty whip and torch. Use your arms and body to solve puzzles, dodge traps, and attack enemies. You can check out the trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Eye of the Temple is a VR game that lets you explore a vast and treacherous temple using your own feet. Keep your balance as you step from one moving block to another, dodging traps and solving puzzles with your torch and whip in hand.

Key Features:

  • Traverse a Vast Environment – Eye of the Temple makes unique use of room-scale VR and delivers the experience of exploring a vast environment. Lose yourself in the depths of the temple without teleportation, artificial locomotion, or other distractions taking you out of the immersion.
  • Fully Physically Simulated Whip – Wield your whip to grab levers out of reach and to defend yourself against flying enemies. It may take several tries to get it right at first, but you’ll find yourself gradually improving until you’ve mastered it as a reliable tool and effective weapon.
  • Dodge Treacherous Traps with Your Own Body – As if stepping onto moving blocks high above the ground wasn’t enough, in some areas you’ll have to dodge and duck under obstacles too. Stay aware of your surroundings and be ready to move at all times.
  • An Experience with No Buttons Required – Eye of the Temple is played with your body, and you never have to press any controller buttons. This makes it more physical than most games and anyone can easily grasp it whether they normally play videogames or not.
  • Unlockable Speedrun Mode – For the extra daring adventurers, a speedrun mode can be unlocked where you can build up incredible speed, with every timed step speeding up the moving blocks a bit. Play it for a true test of your reflexes and grace, and compare your completion time with others’.
