Polish indie developer MythicOwl has announced today that a first virtual reality (VR) title Seabed Prelude will launch next week for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with Touch support.
Bringing some musical flair to VR, Seabed Prelude is set in a post-apocalyptic underwater future where players find themselves as Captain of a bathyscaphe. Gameplay revolves around clearing the ancient tracks between forgotten underwater cities using a powerful pipe organ as a weapon. By playing notes correctly they’ll advance from station to station and in doing so uncover a dark plot hatched by a group called the Constructors.
“We’ve had an itch, to mix an underwater VR experience with music since the first time we saw modern VR”, said Tomasz Mularczyk, CEO of MythicOwl. “Seabed Prelude immerses players in a beautiful underwater world as they ‘play’ their way from station to station to unravel a mystery, simultaneously learning to read music as their journey progresses.”
Seabed Prelude is set to launch on 24th February for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Steam, retailing for $7.99 USD/€7.99 EUR/£5.59 GBP. Checkout the first teaser trailer below:
