Blasters of the Universe VR “bullet hell” shooter launching August 31, 2017
The acclaimed VR first-person bullet hell shooter, BLASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, is set to exit Steam Early Access on Thursday, August 31, 2017.
Build a badass gun from thousands of combinations – and then get ready to duck and dodge your way through a barrage of bullets in this nostalgic (and nerve-wracking) VR shooter for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Developed by Primetime Emmy® Award-winning studio Secret Location, Blasters of the Universe challenges you to survive the wrath of the virtual god Grand Master Alwyn – an insecure man-child who was once the undisputed king of the local arcade. Shunned by the other kids and ignored by everyone else, Alwyn’s true friends were his stack of quarters and those ever-loyal arcade cabinets. Realizing that his absolute dominance in the arcade world would never be recognized by the people around him, he uploaded his consciousness into VR – transforming himself into Grand Master Alwyn, Virtual Space Lord.
Dodge intricate bullet patterns in full room-scale VR as you blast your way through an unrelenting onslaught of enemies with a customized weapon and shield loadout – picking and choosing from tons of parts and modifiers to make each weapon your own. Enjoy multiple full-featured campaign levels, go for a high score in Endless mode, and prepare yourself to enter devious boss battles in a neon-bathed world straight out of ‘90s VHS cover art … all in Virtual Reality!
