Multiplayer Mythica VR RPG?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 24, 2016

I’m a fan of the Mythica films. I’m a fan of VR. I’m a fan of role-playing games, especially something like Neverwinter Nights where a game-master can build and exert control over the game as it progresses.

The folks at Arrowstorm feel the same. So they’ve launched this project:

Mythica VR: Virtual Reality Questing with Your Friends

MythicaVR

Build VR dungeons. Let your friends quest through them in VR. Play the Game Master, or be one of the players.

I’m 100% certain that the technology and goals (if taken literally and implemented in a down-to-earth fashion) are completely achievable. In Unity, half of it can be done with off-the-shelf components right now. The big question concerns the quality of the finished product.

Kynan and Jason are no strangers to making games (I worked with / for them to create a massively multiplayer strategy game in the same universe about ten years ago).¬†And of course, since it’s the same company that did Mythica, licensing the IP isn’t a problem.

So… I’m cautiously optimistic about this one, although their crowdfunding campaign is off to a bit of a rocky start. Assuming it funds, this isn’t something I’d expect a super-polished AAA experience from. But it could likely be a cool tool for you and your VR-owning friends to get together and play a game together, and a decent indie-level project.

Anyway, if you are interested, check the link above.
