Here is an excerpt from the press release;
During the first experience, The Drowned Armory, players will interact with an A.I. Techno-Fairy named AMI (ay-mee), to fight off alien drones with a shield and plasma energy bow, and use head tracking and parallax to solve puzzles in order to activate an ancient robot mech to defeat the giant dragon that dwells at the bottom of a flooded, derelict temple
“This is not a game, ‘ Crowe’ is a cinematic interactive experience that combines puzzle solving, character interaction and combat with an epic ending built in a virtual reality world.”
Pete Blumel, Co-Founder, CEO, and Creative Director at The Rogue Initiative
The trailer is intriguing with its amazing graphics. I can just imagine how this would look playing with VR. Based on the trailer Crowe: The Drowned Armory appears to be of great quality. The story line is rich as with most Sci-Fi themed video games. It captivates the viewer.
VR is paving the future for gaming. As more companies hop on board, more productions are being released. I sampled a VR game during the 2017 Wizard World convention in Cleveland, OH. The experience, although brief, was amazing. It heightens the experience of video games.
