Stealth Labyrinth is a first-person shooter videogame based on stealth mechanics. In a sci-fi labyrinth, the player must proceed, room after room, finding the right way until the end, before the time is out and everything explodes. Many droids patrol the dark corridors; laser barriers need to be passed; lights need to be destroyed to reach the darkness; many doors must be opened. A final button must be pressed.

Since the game natively supports VR headsets like the Oculus Rift, we’re making sure the game is as immersive as possible, motion sickness free and comfortable. We’re adopting a smart UI system to make everything readable within the VR headsets.
We also paying particular attention to make choices that perfectly fit and surprise the player while playing in VR. This means that we’re trying to make the game as spectacular and interesting as possible, also on a visual side trying to encourage the player to explore each zone of the map and each area.
The game is also optimized as much as possible to play perfectly smooth even on high demand VR headsets.
Also, since the default controller for VR (Especially Oculus) is the Xbox game pad,we’re fully supporting the Xbox 360/One game pad AND the keyboard+mouse.
However, the game automatically detects if an headset is turned on or off and it will start the game accordingly.
