BOSTON — June 16, 2022 — MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE, a VR reimagining of the acclaimed roguelike first-person shooter with more than 750,000 veterans, welcomes new recruits on Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR for Valve Index and HTC Vive today.
Let imaginations run wild by combining crazy weapon parts to forge outlandish creations. Developer Terrible Posture Games checks the laws of physics at the door to give players an arsenal worthy of the MOTHERGUNSHIP’S robot alien minions. The possibilities? Unfathomable. The jelly mines? Sticky. The rubber ducks? Menacing, of course.
Experiment with trillions of combinations and create a ridiculous weapon chimera to make your inner Victor Frankgunstein proud. Physically snap together barrels, caps, connectors, and more, all in VR’s immersive first-person view. Attachments can affect both the weapons and the procedurally generated world around you, like tesla coils to chain damage, a skeleton key unlocking every room, coffee ammo to speed up fire rate, or glowing mushrooms for punching projectiles out of the sky. As you do.
One madcap concoction not enough? Bring in a buddy and face the alien armada together in a two-player co-op. Dodge incoming volleys through ducking, diving, dipping, and other gesticulations. Take on punishing stages and colossal bosses to reap plentiful rewards, like money, more gun parts, energy shields to weather the storm, and crystal… purple stuff?
In the belly of the MOTHERGUNSHIP, dozens of hours of roguelike adventure await: each new run generates threatening encounters and heretofore-unseen attachments.
“Bringing MOTHERGUNSHIP to VR is something we’ve been intrigued about for years, and now we get to see our game through a new LENS,” said Joe Mirabello, Creative Director at Terrible Posture Games. “Kyle from PR didn’t want me to use that pun, but PR doesn’t always get what PR wants, DO YOU, KYLE? Puns are glorious, just like slapping a Biscuit Trophy on the weapon of your dreams and unloading sticky spike balls at robot invaders with a buddy.”
MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE launches today on Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR for Valve Index and HTC Vive for $19.99 USD. Stay updated with the latest missions from Terrible Posture Games on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Discord.
