Localized Gear VR version

By | News | No Comments

Dreadhalls has been updated in Gear VR! The new version is fully localized to French, German, Spanish, and Korean. You can switch the language from the in-game Options menu.korean
This new version improves performance in some of the physics calculations, creature movement and object spawning. It also includes improvements to the map generator, the positioning of decorative elements, and many, many other minor bug-fixes, corrections and improvements all across the board.

Hope you’ll like it!

(Support for these languages, and all other fixes will also be available in the upcoming PC Oculus Rift version of the game)

VRJam Demo updated to Oculus Runtime 0.8

The VR Jam demo has been updated to work with the Oculus Runtime 0.8, so if you had been experiencing problems running the last version, please download the new one from here.

Also, if you have performance issues (game has judder, runs too slow, etc…) try holding the ALT key right after launching the .exe. This should open the config dialog where you can choose a lower level of graphics quality.

Dreadhalls goes worldwide!

At last! You can now buy the full version of Dreadhalls for Gear VR in any of the world regions (except for S. Korea at this moment) at a price of $4.99, or your equivalent local currency. To get the game, just visit the Oculus Store from your device.

Thanks for your patience. I hope you’ll like the full version and its new features and content over the demo!

Dreadhalls is now available for purchase on Samsung’s Gear VR at just $4.99. To buy the game, visit the Oculus Store from your device.

The full version of Dreadhalls features new environments, creatures, and a story that you will have to piece together as you progress through the dungeon.

This version also includes a new Random Map mode, where you and your friends can take turns playing single maps, featuring all of the game’s environments and menaces. The game will keep track of how good you do.

Lastly, the PC version for the Oculus Rift is still under development. Keep in touch for updates on when it becomes available too!

Dreadhalls is done!

Good news! I recently completed the development of Dreadhalls! (Well, at least, the Gear VR version of it :)

Temple

This means the full game has already been submitted to Oculus for their evaluation and, assuming they don’t find any problems in it, it will be available for purchase on the Gear VR store in the near future.

Starting now, I’m focusing on porting all of the work I put into the Gear VR version back into the PC one (which I expect to be a fast process). And, since there’s still some time until the PC version can be released, this means I can also add some of the additional features that never made it into the Gear VR build, either because of lack of time, or performance requirements.

Looking back at the original demo I made for the 2013 VR Jam, I’m very happy at how the full game looks and plays now. I believe it still retains that same “feel” that people loved on the prototype, but much more expanded and upgraded. I hope you will like it too!

And speaking of the original demo, I’ve also released an update for those of you who experienced problems with it on your DK2 Rifts. You can download the latest 1.4 version from here.

Dreadhalls for Gear VR

I’m happy to announce that the upcoming commercial version of Dreadhalls will also be available for Samsung’s virtual reality platform: Gear VR

gearvr

Gear VR was recently announced during this year’s IFA trade show at Berlin, and features a headset to be used with the upcoming Galaxy Note 4.

dust_sEven though some features will differ, you will have the same core Dreadhalls experience both in PC and Gear VR, with the same environments and gameplay.

 

 

 

temple_light_sMaking sure the game worked smoothly in the mobile device was a challenging task, requiring many hours of work and custom graphical optimizations.

 

 

 

large_hall_sI believe that work paid off, however, and I hope you’ll find the game as solid and detailed as I do!

But to give you a first look, all the screenshots I’ve used are exclusively from the Gear VR version.
