Darknet Achieves Key Landmark in VR Industry
Darknet is a puzzle VR game in which you play the role of an elite hacker in the Net. You must plug into cyberspace to steal data before getting traced.
Darknet is Now Available in all 5 Major VR Platforms
Darknet was one of the first full VR games to be released, and now became one of the firsts VR games to be available in all major VR headsets.
The game recently came to the Google’s Daydream platform, which it’s the fifth platform for the game, an important milestone in the industry that only 2 have achieved. Darknet first came to the Samsung Gear VR and then the Oculus Rift, PSVR, and HTC Vive headsets. It took only two and a half years for this indie game to be available on all major platforms, quite an achievement.
Darknet is not the first VR game to make it to all the major platforms, it is actually the second, after Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes, which managed to release in every VR platform at launch.
The Daydream version costs $9.99 and features support for motion controllers.
Five version is the current record, could Darknet or maybe another game reach six? Maybe for the Windows Mixed Reality platform later this year? We will have to wait and see.
Darknet was created in 3 weeks by a team of only one person, E McNeill, and it began as a Grand Prize winner of the VR Jam back in 2013.
