Lately, developers around the world have been enthralled in making FPS VR games. We’ve seen countless numbers and variations of them to the point where they almost feel repetitive. But a small independent studio called Ruffian Games looks to shake things up with their new upcoming title called RAD TV.
RAD TV is a “quick fire, hot seat multiplayer VR party game” according to Ruffian Games. You and your friends are transported into a sentient TV full of weird and quirky challenges. Players will be putting their mental and physical strength to the test with 25 unique rapid-fire games.
Challenges vary from hurling old records at zombies to quick-drawing your pistol against cowboys to flying drones through checkpoints. You’ll even see a challenge where you have to gulp down some meaty hamburgers.
Ruffian Games wanted to create something unique in the world of VR, which is how they came up with the game. RAD TV changes situations as quickly as surfing TV channels.
The trailer showcases some of the mentioned challenges plus a few more where you’ll be swinging a bat, throwing balls into weird blue circles, drinking rapidly, and even playing the drums. The game also appears to be stationary not requiring much movement outside of arms reach.
