Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Greek Mythology-inspired Adventure ‘Journey For Elysium’ Gets New Gameplay Trailer

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Journey For Elysium, an upcoming VR adventure game from publisher Cronos Interactive and developer Mantis Games, got a fresh trailer today, revealing a bit more of the Greek mythology-inspired title.

Journey For Elysium is a story-driven puzzle adventure game that puts players in the role of a hero who, after passing away, travels on a boat in the Underworld.

On a search to reach Elysium, the paradise realm in Ancient Greek mythology, you encounter what Mantis calls “a series of increasingly elaborate twists and challenges.”

The game previously took a stab at a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, although it, unfortunately, fell short of its €20,000 funding goal in April 2019.

Undeterred, the studio continued with development, and released a gameplay trailer today (linked below) showing off the game’s monochromatic art style; you might more succinctly call it a teaser considering no real gameplay is shown outside of rowing a boat, climbing a ladder and grabbing a glowing key.

Mantis Games, however, says the game’s puzzles are inspired by the classic adventure games of the ’90s, and that they will include an increasing difficulty as the story progresses.

Journey For Elysium is slated to launch in Q4 2019 and will be available on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
