STRANGE ALLIES™: a sci-fi role-playing game for HTC Vive
STRANGE ALLIES™ is a made-for-VR episodic science fiction action role-playing game for the HTC Vive.
In STRANGE ALLIES, you are a small-time criminal who stumbles into a military conspiracy that could have galaxy-shattering consequences. You thought you were just stealing a ship, but what you find could doom the human race.
Proof of Concept Episode available now
We have recently released a Proof of Concept Episode on the following sites for free download:
This Proof of Concept Episode offers a small taste of the game we are making, and also serves as your introduction to the universe of STRANGE ALLIES and the story's characters.
STRANGE ALLIES was created as a VR-only experience. Making the game for VR only—and specifically for the HTC Vive—has enabled us to focus our game design efforts for maximum exploitation of both VR and the HTC Vive.
We want to extend and expand the scope of game play from here, notably introducing travel aboard your ship and ship-to-ship combat, as well as trading and of course continuing the story via additional episodes and event missions. For more information, see the Future Plans page.
We're also considering running a crowdfunding campaign in the coming weeks. For our rambling musings on that, see the Crowdfunding page.
An uncompromising VR experience!
STRANGE ALLIES has been designed for VR from the ground-up. We aim to make STRANGE ALLIES one of the most immersive VR gaming experiences available.
