26 Rob Plays Announced

 

 

Adelaide, Australia - August 28, in the year of our Lord 2018 - Are you the fastest ice cream scooper in the land? A whiz with paper airplanes? Get ready to put your money where your mouth is because Australian game studio Novus Res has announced that their new VR party game, 26 Rob Plays, will be available for digital download for PC via the Oculus store on September 6, 2018. The pass-and-play style VR game challenges you to compete against your friends in a series of frantic mini-games, including painting abstract masterpieces, scooping ice cream, shooting aliens, and more.

"From the outset we wanted to make VR a social experience" said Luke Wilson, lead developer on 26 Rob Plays. "We wanted to bring people together using the newest technology to share their love of gaming and play, the way people do with board games and card games." With 26 Rob Plays, the developer hopes to do away with some of the antisocial stigmas video games have long fought against.

26 Rob Plays features 26 mini games in which players are challenged to complete a series of short VR tasks. The games are designed to maximize the capabilities of VR interactivity-players can go from chopping wood to dodging cannonballs to making burgers. The game supports up to eight players, each taking turns to compete for the best score on each level, and watching can be just as fun as playing. "The other players get to sit and watch as other players jump around in VR, waving their arms and legs all over the place," said Wilson. "It's hilarious."

The Novus Res team enjoyed a successful visit to the US earlier this year, during which they publicly demonstrated the game for the first time. "We spent two weeks at South By South West (SXSW) in Austin and Games Developer Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, showing people the game and getting feedback," said Wilson. "We were blown away by the overwhelmingly positive response and even had people bringing their friends back the next day to show them."

No word on a physical copy version of this game on this system at this time. Families are required to pay for Internet usage fees to download this game. For more information click here.
