OtherSide Entertainment has announced Underworld Overlord, an innovative VR action/strategy game, will be released 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 a VR setting steeped in the “Underworld” mythos.
Underworld Overlord’s action takes place from a virtual top-down perspective, directing forces and building defenses in a dynamic VR environment. The player commands a dungeon full of monsters, traps and treasure, during an onslaught of adventurers.
“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.”
More details about Underworld Overlord will be revealed over the coming months. Check in with Gaming Trend for more information on this release.
