Incoming Storm

Insomniac Games released a trailer for their Oculus Rift VR game Stormland at the PC Gaming Show E3 2018. CCO Chad Dessern from Insomniac Games spoke with Day9 to talk more about the game. You play as an android gardener who is destroyed by the Tempest and now you need to get above the cloud layer to begin repairing yourself. Every week the tempest will rearrange the landscape allowing players to visit new locations constantly.

It shows the player character, a robot, exploring a planet until he's brought back to life many years later. Once operational again, we see the player exploring more to put himself back together, exploring the world and finally heading home. There are both climbing and gliding mechanics. The combat allows you to wield a gun as well as a shield. If you encounter other robots you're also able to revive them and have them tag along with you.

 

Stormland will be released on June 7, 2018.
