Banbury, Oxfordshire – 14th November 2016
Craft Keep VR, the amusing, fantasy blacksmith-come-alchemist game is now available to the public in Early Access! Expanding upon the magical world of Shoppe Keep, Craft Keep VR will see players progress on an epic crafting journey, with monthly content updates further advancing the story, and introducing new environments.
Utilising the HTC Vive’s Room-Scale features, Craft Keep VR sees the player walk around their own shop and sell items to customers. Ordering individual items of stock, players craft their own potions, swords, daggers and more. And while stepping inside the fantasy world of Craft Keep VR is enthralling, players feel the pressure, needing to fulfil orders quickly enough the customers are satisfied.
Craft Keep VR uses the Vive’s natural wireless controllers to mimic the player’s real-life movement. When the player grips the controller, their avatar grips an item. When the player crouches and makes a throwing action, their avatar crouches by a furnace and tosses a piece of iron into the fire. Will players be sensible enough to responsibly handle hammers and crossbows, though? We doubt it.
Mistrusting the players even further, Craft Keep VR includes a tool that allows them to upload their own textures and create their own character skins. Upon the game booting up, players will be able to access the skin creator.
Craft Keep VR Launch Trailer
With the launch of Craft Keep VR, it makes sense to release a new trailer. It’s certainly fun to watch people mess around in Craft Keep VR, and so that’s exactly what we did – filmed a member of staff playing the game, along with the according in-game actions. You can take a look at the new trailer below:
