Are you wondering what makes Virtual Reality such a powerful platform for adventure games?
VR Adventures are a cutting point and never-before-seen mesmerizing experience that takes the player into a three-dimensional virtual world.
It all comes down to the individual viewpoint of virtual reality when the player turns his head and the game ‘camera’ responds. The characters in the game talk straight to the player. Thus, creating a more convincing and immersive world. With the arrival of VR, developers are watching out for ways to drive the adventure game experience to its next legitimate step where players will be engaged in the story of the game in the ways that were never before realized
Virtual Reality has a lot of storytelling potential. If we compare adventure games with a storybook, VR experience enables players to enter the story they’re being told virtually. The players can see and hear the story through the eyes of the hero, undergoing the emotional uproar that the player goes through as they find out and understand the character’s viewpoint.
With VR, the player experiences a different kind of storytelling. While traditional games let players cheer for the hero, VR adventure allows the player to substitute that hero, witnessing the world as real and hence feeling a natural compassion for the characters they meet. This perspective makes the players emotionally attached to their role. There’s lots of scope for humorous approaches to stories in VR; the developers are constantly trying to give the players something that they can actually invest in.
Developers of these titles are utilizing puzzle mechanics and adventure logics to present players with an experience that is as strong with gameplay as it is with storytelling.
Considering the rise in popularity of VR platforms in recent years, it’ll be interesting to see how adventure video games in virtual reality will take off. With the multiple games in the genre presently in development, players will definitely have loads of opportunities for story-based games to drop their teeth into.
For the adventure titles fans, the future is pretty compelling and exciting!
