Independent developer, Evocat Games, today announced that Nemesis Realms, sequel to the award-winning Nemesis Perspective, is now available on Steam Early Access for PC and VR. Nemesis Realms features innovative local multiplayer experience for up to five players, four of which team up as heroes against one badass boss playing in VR on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality in the ultimate battle for bragging rights.
“Nemesis Realms is the epitome of party games. Ganging up to take down a big bad boss is much more satisfying when you are fighting against one of your own”, said Sami Koivisto, CEO of Evocat Games. “It’s a new take on VR multiplayer, allowing up to five people to play together with a single VR headset and four controllers, a simple set up that will produce hours of fun for the whole group.”
Nemesis Realms is a local fighting party game played with up to 5 people, one of which takes on the role of a huge boss monster in VR while the other gamers play as smaller hero characters on regular controllers, working together to defeat the boss. The Early Access build features two stages with a unique hero-boss pairing, different gameplay mechanics and new environments, the first of which features a fantasy mountaintop with a lake and waterfalls. Using straightforward VR mechanics, the boss must punch and smack the heroes, while the nimble 3D heroes hack and slash at the boss using ranged attacks and agile, real time combat tactics.
The second stage is located inside an old, dark cathedral, wherein the VR player takes control of a three-headed dragon, each with unique attributes, which the player can use to destroy the environment and perform close combat attacks. The heroes in this stage move with combination of 2D platformer mechanics and action combat, dashing and diving to avoid the deadly heads while performing close and ranged attacks to bring down the beast.
