Experiment Gone Rogue

You can find Experiment Gone Rogue Press Kit here.

NOTE: Playing Experiment Gone Rogue will require either Oculus Rift or HTC Vive and VR motion controllers.

Overview

Experiment Gone Rogue is a sci-fi action VR game set in a dystopian future where an alien race, known as the Cirinians, have come to earth and asserted itself as the ruler of humanity. The positive public image they have created for themselves acts as a vail to hide the experiments they have been performing on us. But everything backfired for the Cirinians when they  accidentally let loose their most dangerous test subject before it was complete. Instead of being loyal to its creators, it instead turned on them and started wreaking havoc across the facility.

The game offers a motion controlled VR experience that includes:

• Smooth locomotion and teleportation system.

• Dynamic gunplay: use real-life movements to take cover or dodge bullets.

• Physics based punching that transfers your punch velocity into the game.

• Various weapons with hidden upgraded versions.

• Extra prizes won via minigames.

• Multiple Boss fights.

• A virtual Go-Go bar.

About the current version

Version 1.0 was made after feedback from three rounds of beta testing and is the version that we have put up on Steam. We did our best to fix all known issues and we focused on making the game as comfortable as possible for people who get motion sickness. We added a few options for things that come down to personal preference so people can set up the game in the most suitable way for them. The game now has a tutorial which will help players understand the core concepts of the game and the controls.

Changelog

This Changelog includes most changes to the game from version 0.976 to version 1.0

• Two New Enemies – The Cirinians realized their foot-soldiers were not the brightest, so they engineered some smarter sergeants to lead them, Some valkyries were sent to training and came back ambidextrous – they can now wield two swords – TWICE THE Danger!

• Tutorial – We figured the players might want to experience what’s it like to train as a Cirinian, so we got access to their top secret training program, and now YOU can be as strong as them.

• 1 New Level – We came into the office one day and found out that the Cirinians have added a whole new facility to their infrastructure overnight. We’ve tried removing it, but with no luck. We’re sorry.

• Locomotion Improvements – If you’re tired of getting sick or moving at a snail’s pace, we addressed both those issues with some of our in-house handmade CODING MAGIC by adding speed options and some motion sickness related improvements.

• Interactable Physics – We felt that the dancers in the bar were lacking something important. They lacked… jiggle! With the new interactive physics you can interact with the girls in a more fun way. And there is plenty of jiggle!

• Credits – We realized you have no way of knowing who’s responsible for your adventure, so we added CREDITS.

Dancers, new facials – No matter what we tried the dancers seemed unable to experience the simple joys of life, so we sent them to an acting coach, and they can now at least fake emotions (Women! Am I right?).

• FPS improvements  – Cirinian tech seemed quite heavy on our earthly computers, so we did our best to make it run more smoothly.

Fixes & Small Changes

• Gun angle – Our office blew up with reports of weird aiming angle on Vive. Apparently the coders wrists are made out of titanium and they didn’t notice that you have to break your wrist to aim the guns. So we made them fix it.

• Hairless females – All the dancers were sent to a hairdresser to fix the nests they had on their heads. Apparently exotic dancers aren’t good at doing their own hair. Go figure.

• Demon eyes – A demon whose name only programmers know had snuck into our females and made their eyes pitch black. After multiple exorcisms we managed to get him out. He is now having tea with the programmers somewhere.

• Some new menu options – The menu seemed lonely, much like us when we had no testers, so we decided to add some new options that will help make the game more comfortable for whoever is playing.

• Lighting changes – The old light bulbs we put in were getting the job done but they weren’t blowing anyone away. That’s why we put up some new mood lighting to make some places look and feel better.

• Textures, materials and art – With the help of someone called Leonardo da Vinci, whoever that is, we tried to improve the overall look of the game.

• Textures, materials and art – With the help of some artsy fartsy people, we tried to improve the overall look of the game.

Is this a whole new game?

This Changelog includes most changes to the game from version 0.976 to version 1.0

• Are you tired of teleporting like a God amongst mere mortals? Well, with the implementation of smooth locomotion you can now WALK like a regular person. Exciting, I know. But wait, there’s more.

• Snap turning. Like regular turning but snappier.

• Reinvented weapon system. Gone are the days where you just have all the guns at your disposal. You now unlock better weapons as you progress through the game.

• New Guns! And if they are not “bling” enough for you, you can now find golden versions of some weapons and best of all, they do more damage.

• Our gun manufacturer worked sleepless night to make new high tech heat bars for the weapons so you know when they are about to overheat.

• We have also added holsters so you can now carry your chosen weapons with you throughout the levels. Except in the Go-go bar. It’s for the safety of the girls.

• We took a good hard look at the flying bosses and came to the same conclusion that our beta testers came to. They are a pain in the ass and are boring to fight! So we made 2 completely new bosses with different and engaging mechanics in their places.

• We changed most of the light bulbs in the levels to a new power saving, eco friendly model which made the levels brighter and easier to see.

• In case you have ever wanted to stop in the middle of the game to file your taxes or you are just a little baby that needs to take a break, you can now pause the game.

• Guns are now held with the grip button which should be more intuitive if you have ever held a real gun… or anything else for that matter.

• A laser passing through your neighbour’s house will no longer kill you. Because the hitboxes are fixed.

• We hired a vocal coach for some of the bosses and enemies so now they sound a bit better.

• And we hired pest control to get rid of most of the bugs we previously had. Hopefully there are no more little critters crawling around.

Catching bugs in a net.

• Enemies clipping trough the ground? Say no more. We went back and got them reprogrammed and properly trained.

• What is more fun than punching enemies? Nothing of course, that was a retorical question. That’s why we fixed the issue where you couldn’t punch enemies. You’re welcome.

• Slow motion is out of date, we don’t know why the enemies decided it was cool, at least now they aren’t slow. We hope it stays that way.

• We fixed the bug where the dancers would rather be literally anywhere else but in your presence.

• Just a few new cosmetic touch ups, nothing important ( don’t tell them we had missing textures ).

• We want our players to experience virtual reality at it’s fullest so we decided to fix the incorrect sound virtualization. “Being a DJ is exciting” – tone def programmer.

• The sweet taste of victory, finally you conquered the final boss. YES! But then…the laser doesn’t dissapear, good thing the developers fixed it.

• We payed the Lab boss extra working hours so he can stop dissapearing and restart.

• When enemies hit you there is an added screen effect. Adds a nice combat feel.
