From the creator of McPixel, after over 2.5 years in development, one of the most anticipated VR games, Mosh Pit Simulator is finally getting a release date. The game will launch on Steam Early Access on 15 January 2019. The game will support HTC Vive, Oculus Rift with Touch Controllers and Windows MR line of devices upon launch.
Mosh Pit Simulator is an open-world physical sand-box game about a world that is overrun by brainless boneless humanoid creatures due to a terrible accident. The humans are pretty harmless but that doesn't stop the player from getting in their way. You can punch them, throw them, attack them with anything you can find, and destroy pretty much whatever you see fit.
The game features an open world city of nearly 500,000 square meters where you can destroy or interact with nearly everything you see around you, take away buildings and trees. In addition to sandbox mode, the game will feature a story mode that will present players with the backstory of the game's world and teach them how to play.
The premise behind the game is that the player is put in a video game world, rules by video game rules, but with the VR helmet on his head, the player has unfair advantage and is able to bend the rules of the game to his will. Virtual things do not weigh anything, making you infinitely powerful, obstacles do not exist, and you can slow down time as you please. The idea is to give the player something absolutely relatable, such as a fully furnished city, inhabited by, perhaps not the brightest, but still humans and let the player create impossible situations and event that will not happen in real life.
I believe that this is what the VR was meant for, not to let people do things they can do in real life, but to allow them to do anything they wish and experience what would otherwise be unattainable and have infinite amounts of fun along with some laughs in the process.
