This is the second game I have created as a solo-developer and like my first, Dimensional, it tries to tackle some of the issues facing VR.

Movement is a key theme in my games because I know that it increases immersion. Games like Robo Recal and Echo Area show how much fun action can be in VR but also demonstrate how easy it is to start hitting walls and objects. This game was designed from the beginning with this problem in mind.

I will be writing an article in the coming weeks about the features I have added to try and get players to enjoy moving quickly and punching, but with added safety measures. VR will always be prone to accidents, but I hope my features prove to be beneficial - time will tell.
