Wow a double whammy. First an open world developed for console Beneath a Still Sky, and now VR Broken Sword. What is the world coming to?

Oh. Console BASS sounds pretty awesome, but VR Broken Sword… Does this mean it will go all 3D again? That’s not a good thing in my book. Broken Sword could only exist as 2D (or pseudo 2D like the 5th part, doesn’t matter).

If they’ll want to actually have some decent sales, they’ll have to have one.

I still think VR is just going to be a fad. Nothing more than a fart in a bottle.

Wouldn’t that depend on what kind of an experience it will be? If they do it a proper VR thing, then making a non-VR version of it makes very little sense, especially if it is about the experience first and foremost rather than actual gameplay. I’ve tried several different kinds of VR experiences and the ones that make the most sense are the ones that aim for some kind of an experience, like a walk in a dinosaur park or some extreme rollercoaster ride. Really, one of the most interesting VR experiences I’ve had wasn’t a game at all, but a Cirque Du Soleil 360 performance, where you can look where ever you want and always see something interesting.

Oh my god, are you shitting me?! First the horrible BASS news, and now this.. oh well. I guess I’ll check’em out, but I really just want traditional adventure games.. I didn’t think Broken Sword would go experimental on us, after a great 5th entry. Let’s hope for an awesome no. 7. Tongue

Ps. I loved Techno Babylon, and the sequel is also going 3d.. maybe it’s a trend right now?! Hopefully it’ll die.. again.. and we’ll go back to handpainted, pixelated, beautifully crafted graphics.. until then..

At least whoever wrote that description has some sense of humour…

“The game will be viewed as a ‘must buy’ VR title by Revolution’s existing hardcore fans”  Tongue

If this news is real, what I am mostly surprised about it is that it has that number 6 on it. If they did some experiment called “Broken Sword: VR experience” I think it wouldn’t be such an issue, just a spin-off experiment.

But if they actually make it an official sequel, and if it’s one of those games that actually require some VR device, then most “hardcore fans” will never play it, because most of them just don’t have such gadgets.

I have hundreds of adventure games, but zero VR devices, and no intention of ever buying one.

I still refuse to believe that this news is real, or that the news article is telling the whole story. I could believe that they are doing BS6, and there will be one version of it that is made for VR. Otherwise they are making the most stupid decision a company could ever make, to make their game so unattractive that most people don’t even see any motivation to pirate it, not to mention actually pay some money for it.

VR is so not gonna be a fad. I think adventure fans should really look forward to VR. Classic adventures, along with RPGs, are one of the most enjoyable genres in VR. Being in the environment while naturally solving puzzles with your hands is just amazing.

VR is just not yet at the point where it would be able to enter the mass market- the experience itself is good enough already (from the technical standpoint). But HMDs will have to become much smaller, lighter and comfortable in general, so that you’ll be able to forget you are even wearing something.

It seems VR will be a huge part of PS5, so my bet is, we might start seeing a bigger adoption in next 2-3 years (Sony already sold over 4 millions of PSVR for PS4, which is quite an achievement).

I can’t agree. You are not in the environment, and you know you are not in it. You would have to be a mental patient to think you were in the environment.

So what VR does is cover your entire field of vision with unreality. That’s not something I want. It sounds nauseating.

Hmmm, as someone who has presumably been immersed in a 2.5D environment numerous times that seems a very strange statement.

Have you tried it?  It’s just the next level of immersion.

Can someone explain what this site is exactly? I’m not seeing any mention of this announcement on Revolution’s twitter or website.

I’m certainly looking forward to VR in games like Broken Sword. I think adventure games and VR will go so well together in the future. The only problem right now is that VR is still in its infancy.
