Description

Designed exclusively for VR, Spectro is a ghost hunting action game with roguelike elements. There are infinite haunted levels to explore, chests full of gear to unlock, and hidden totems to find.

Something paranormal has been sweeping through the town of Weirdwood. Dust off your gear and head into an infinite variety of haunted house levels to capture ghosts, search for hidden totems, and find powerful new items. Spectro is a first person VR action game with item progression, secret doors, locked chests, stashed coins, customizable gear, and a phantom around every corner.

History

The development started in 2015 after we realized how cool it was to explore hand crafted worlds in VR. The Night Cafe, our previous experience allowed you to walk through a painting, so why couldn't we make a procedural algorithm that allowed you to endlessly explore some place? We came up with the idea of Spectro, a game that features roguelike level generation with hand-crafted elements and with mechanics that encourage you to look around to find hidden details.

Features

  • Random generated haunted houses
    Explore an endless variety of haunted house levels, each with unique layouts, items, and hand-crafted elements that provide a new challenge every time.
  • Bust some ghosts
    Some channel energy, some throw bombs, others shoot lasers out of their eyes - they all want to haunt you!
  • Tons of items to collect
    Over 40 different items and blasters to collect. Save your coins to buy power-up kits and upgrade your gear so you can take on tougher enemies. Inventory progression saves as you play.
  • VR from the ground up
    Designed with virtual reality in mind from the beginning. Mechanics that are optimized for hand presence.
  • Locomotion choice
    Free-movement, teleport, and other options to customize your experience for comfort and immersion.
  • Hidden object challenges
    Find collectables and totems that trigger object challenges. Careful not to let a ghost see you or you may have to run!
