nDreams, a studio well known for its PlayStation Home content, has announced that it will be bringing its first major virtual reality game, The Assembly, to PlayStation 4, with full support for Sony’s virtual reality headset Project Morpheus.
“The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR. For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices,” Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams said on the PlayStation Blog. “Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.”
The game’s story has been written by Tom Jubert, who has also worked on FTL, Penumbra, and The Swapper. It sees players flung into the underground world of The Assembly, “a collection of scientists, academics and engineers who believe morality in society is preventing scientific advancement and are committed to discovering a universal theory of everything, at any cost.”
