VR RPG Dungeon Crawler Demeo Slated To Launch Next Year
Updated: Feb 5, 2021
If there's one thing I've especially missed during this year's lockdown, it's been game night. Despite my group's terrible decision-making and inability to listen to verbal clues, playing D&D is always a fun time. Resolution Games knows just how fun those times can be, revealing today that the VR-studio's next major release will put players back into their favorite tabletop roles virtually.
Demeo is described as a game in which players "will explore the dangerous dungeons and perilous pits of a monster-infested underworld", and suggests that playing with a group of friends will be the best way to play. The game doesn't have a firm release date yet, but is tentatively slated to release sometime next year for PC and most VR headsets.
Check out the teaser trailer below to get a taste of what awaits you in the virtual tabletop world (dice included).
The animated mini-figurines are a great touch for this type of game, which will likely be even more impressive in VR. That said, you'll still be able to play with your friends on PC if you don't have a VR headset - Demeo being the first cross-platform title for Resolution Games.
“Many of us here at Resolution Games have incredibly fond memories of spending late nights playing old-fashioned tabletop RPG games with friends,” Tommy Palm, CEO, Resolution Games, stated. “For the past few years, we’ve been working to translate that very special experience to virtual reality, and Demeo delivers everything you love about gathering around a table to slay monsters with your friends... without having to furiously erase mistakes from your character sheet.”
“Tabletop games are seeing a renaissance as of late and those players - new and veteran - are as faithful as ever. We carried this weight through the entire dev process to stay true to that core, while creating something from the ground up for VR,” added Mike Booth, board member of Resolution Games and Demeo's creative directors. “In fact, when we first started sharing early builds of Demeo, more than one industry expert expressed their doubts that anyone could successfully pull off the transformation of such an experience. But then when they put the headset on, they were completely sold.”
