Announcing ‘Song in the Smoke,’ an Atmospheric Survival Adventure Game Coming to the Oculus Quest and Rift Platforms

It’s been two years and change since GALAK-Z: The Virtual brought the retro anime-inspired shooter home to the Rift Platform. Today, developer 17-BIT is back and ready to whet our appetites with a first look at its next VR title: survival adventure game Song in the Smoke, coming to the Oculus Quest and Rift Platforms as well as PSVR later this year.Song in the Smoke immerses players in a mysterious prehistoric world full of strange beasts where they must craft, forage, hunt, and fight to survive. Featuring art by famed illustrator Katsuya Terada (The Legend of Zelda, Blood: The Last Vampire, The Monkey King), Song in the Smoke has atmosphere and adventure in spades, with fantastical creatures and stylized scenery that pack an eerie, otherworldly punch.“At 17-BIT, we love to create fresh takes on existing genres, from our lighthearted turn-based strategy game Skulls of the Shogun to the modernized space shooter GALAK-Z,” says 17-BIT Founder and Creative Lead Jake Kazdal. “With Song in the Smoke, we dove even deeper into unknown territory: a VR survival adventure, with all new rules, in a completely new medium. Song in the Smoke is unlike anything we’ve done before, and it’s our most ambitious title yet. The experience is so completely immersive and engaging, the forest is alive all around you in the extra dimension provided by VR. We’re thrilled to be offering an intense adventure that couldn’t be captured in any other way.”
Awoken by a three-headed crow at the edge of the woods, ​players will travel through eight stages including forests, valleys, and frozen terrain. You’ll battle the elements and strange beasts alike, crafting tools, weapons, medicine, and more to stay alive. In true VR fashion, you’ll identify threats by sound as well as sight. Intuitive controls mean you can line up the perfect shot with your bow, but you may not be the only one stalking its prey, so keep your wits about you.Prepare yourself: Song in the Smoke launches later this year on the Quest and Rift Platforms and PSVR.

It Makes Flying Possible. One of the most popular uses of virtual reality is with flying simulators. In addition to the headset, these simulators usually require an addition piece of some kind. Some of these virtual reality flying simulators require a special chair with a joystick attached to it. There are also gliding simulators that have their own props as well. Users who try virtual reality flying simulators say that the experience feels so real, and the extra pieces make it better.
