Game Info:

Crystal Rift is an experiential horror challenge game that takes the player through a series of increasingly mysterious locations. The game has been developed primarily for virtual reality headsets such as the Oculus Rift and GearVR, but is also a great experience for those without headsets. It was inspired by classic games such as Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder with grid-based movement.

An immersive virtual reality experience, Crystal Rift will be released with a over 20 levels, with unique styles and settings, to provide many hours of gameplay. The player slowly uncovers the narrative and story through exploration, discovering dark secrets and following the path of those who have come before.

The in-game editor also allows users the ability create and share their own content, further extending the game’s lifespan.

The latest VR alpha demo of the game for Oculus Rift can be found at for Windows and OSX.

Preorders are expected to be made available in late 2014, including Beta Test process with early adopter availability. A full release of the game is planned for Summer 2015.

Upon release we hope to be on Steam, GOG and other online stores.
