Forge Reply will release later this year their VR action-adventure title Theseus. It is a new interpretation of the Greek myth of the Minotaur with a cinematic approach. First screens, teaser and a few more details inside.
Live the Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur Like Never Before – in Virtual Reality
“Explore your darkness”
MILAN, Italy (Feb. 16, 2017) – From the developers of Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf, Forge Reply presents another new interpretation of an immortal tale in Theseus.
Theseus is a dark and mature representation of the Greek myth of the Minotaur, designed specifically for Virtual Reality.
The 360 video works properly on Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Opera on desktop computers – YouTube app on Android and iOS. For a more engaging experience, experience it with a Cardboard.
You wake up alone, stranded in a hostile, mysterious place. With Ariadne’s voice as your only guide, you explore alleys and chambers, venturing deep into the heart of the Labyrinth. In the distance, you can see a pillar of light. It shines in the darkness, beckoning you to go ever forward…
You have the chance to unveil the truth behind the Labyrinth, but soon you shall discover that you are not alone. The mighty Minotaur is the ruler of this world, and you are not a welcomed visitor.
• Theseus’ myth revisited in a fresh, innovative way
• Story-driven action adventure with a dark tone
• A cinematic approach to Virtual Reality
• Face the Minotaur and fight his minions
• Discover the truth behind your quest for survival

Really digging the new event in Overwatch. Is it a continuing story? I thought I heard the event will move along a narrative on each end date or something. Might be wishful thinking... (1 Hour ago)
The problem with MGS2 is that like 80% of the game is story, and the story sucks. When you get to play, MGS2 is good. (2 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: very interesting vid. Had no idea MGS2 had so much detail. Crazy what the PS2 and Kojima could pull off. (2 Hours ago)
