Cradle of Links developer Studio RELOADWORLD says its game will be distinguished from most other VIVE projects by offering complete freedom of movement — smooth in any direction — and velocity variation.

You’ll fight nine unique enemies using various weapons. Experience realistic aiming, recoiling and reloading. Solve puzzles. Interact with objects and assemble mechanisms using the VIVE’s motion controllers. Discover hidden passages. Transfer your mind to deceased, previously infected NPCs. Save yourself from prison.

Okay, how did you come to be in this situation? Well, the previous year, a mysterious plague descended on the area. Those who weren’t infected fled to neighboring towns where, in desperation, they turned to theft and robbery to survive.

Meanwhile, the infected city has been quarantined. Blanketed in dense fog, it’s also become home to packs of wild animals.

You’ll visit four locations, where hopelessness and fear will await your arrival. Each location is projected to take at least an hour-and-a-half to complete. Cradle of Links‘ mystical narrative will lead players to a quite unexpected ending.

The game, constructed with Unreal 4, has been Greenlit. It’s currently slated for release in Q1 2017 exclusively on Windows/HTC VIVE.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
