OTHERSIDE ENTERTAINMENT INVITES PLAYERS TO “BE-THE-BAD-GUY” IN UNDERWORLD OVERLORD EXCLUSIVELY FOR GOOGLE’S DAYDREAM VR PLATFORM
Rally the defenses of your very own VR dungeon against plundering adventurers.
CONCORD, MASS – May 18, 2016 – OtherSide Entertainment is excited to announce Underworld Overlord, an innovative VR action/strategy game, exclusively for Google’s Daydream platform when it launches later this year.
Blending proven tower defense and “god game” simulation mechanics, Underworld Overlord immerses players in an incredible VR setting steeped in the fantastical Underworld mythos.
“Underworld Overlord is specifically tailored to the capabilities of the Daydream platform, developed by a team of VR and Android experts in close collaboration with Google,” says OtherSide creative director Paul Neurath. “It’s a stand-alone game, but connects to the upcoming Underworld Ascendant, sharing creatures, characters, and rich lore. The Underworld franchise has a history of pioneering immersive video games, so bringing it to VR is a natural fit.”
In Underworld Overlord, the player commands a dungeon full of monsters, traps and treasure, during an onslaught of so-called ‘heroic’ adventurers. Action takes place from a virtual ‘puppeteer’s’ perspective as the player pulls the strings, directing forces and building defenses in a dynamic VR environment.
More details about Underworld Overlord will be revealed over the coming months.
