Davigo begs the query: why did not this exist already? It is an uneven multiplayer recreation during which one participant in a VR headset makes an attempt to swipe and slam as much as 4 tiny, nimble gamers on desktop computer systems, who every wield rocket launchers. It performs with scale in ways in which appear to be wonderful enjoyable.
Watch the opening shot of this trailer and inform me you are not immediately bought on the concept:
Davigo is not the primary recreation to pit PC and VR gamers towards one another on this means. Panoptic and Mass Exodus Redux each do it, and Alice O fell in love with Dustnet’s cybergods final 12 months.
All of these video games are some method of moody, although. Davigo appears to be like like instinctive, foolish enjoyable. The little PC gamers which are operating round try to take down the enormous VR participant with rockets, however they will additionally cling on to their very own rockets and hurl themselves across the atmosphere. In the event that they hit the VR participant with a rocket, a part of their face breaks off. And the VR participant, for his or her half, is pounding on the bottom, tearing out bushes to throw, and making an attempt to swat the PC gamers out of the air like flies.
Pitting a single VR participant towards a number of PC gamers additionally solves the frequent drawback that there aren’t that many individuals enjoying VR multiplayer video games, so it is usually laborious to get an internet recreation going with sufficient individuals.
