When i got my HTC Vive (too late couse i couldnt get a devkit) I started doing prototypes.
Most of them are really crude and no graphics or polish whatsoever, typical prototype style.
But after seeing that VR games bypass greenlight, i had the idea to start a multigame game where i post VR minigames, most of them being those same prototypes, just more polished.
Im going to release it for free, and Valve already gave me the steamworks package for it.
My plan is to polish 3 minigames to publish such pack, and then add new ones every week/2 weeks. Developing them alone gamejam style.
I have 15 minigames planned to do, probably wont make all of them.
The first 2 are these:
VR Shootout, FPS where you teleport around in a level. You can use telekinetic powers and guns to kill enemies. It was planned to be a full game, but i have no artist so i cant design the levels enough to make it a full game. That prototype has 7 development days but most of the time was spent trying to design the level.
Lightsaber minigame, a lot of drone enemies appear, and you destroy them with a pistol and a lightsaber, you can block firing with the lightsaber and return the projectiles to the enemies. It has a scoring system. Done in 1 day.
Next one for the start in steam its going to be a football (soccer for americans) game where you play as the goalkeeper, you have to block shots from several robots. Goes faster each time, also has scoring system.
Another ones that are planned are:
- A fantasy dungueon crawler with 1 level and only skeletons as enemies, where you go around throwing fireballs.
- A Ping Pong game
- A full sized tennis game with a teleport.
- A fps survival game wich uses mechanics from the both the action game and the lightsaber game, but has free movement in an arena.
- Duck hunt VR with a physical gun.
- A Table sized Tower defense game, with the towers being like chess pieces or miniatures.
All of them will be released for free in one steam pack, what i want its people trying them so i can get feedback on those mechanics so i can do a commercial game later down the line.
Feel free to post ideas about other possible minigames that i could add to the pack, if its a good idea i might do it.
Ill do dev logs and stream their development later, if people wants to see it.
