About VirtuaVerse Game:
This is a challenging old-school point-and-click cyberpunk adventure set in the near future. It tells stories of technomancers, AVR graffiti writers, hacker groups, tribes of cryptoshamans, digital archeology, epic cyberwars, and virtual reality debauchery.
In a near future, one artificial intelligence has won out over all the other AIs and their governments. Society is moving toward a world where everything is always connected to a single neural network. By processing personal data, this neural network is always making people’s lives better.
Nathan is an outsider who still won’t follow the new system. He lives off the grid by smuggling in modified hardware and software that has been cracked. He is one of the few people who can still turn off AVR and see reality for what it is because of his custom headset.
The player controls Nathan and has to find things, talk to NPCs, and figure out puzzles to move the story along. Later in the game, the player can turn on or off the main character’s AVR headset. This lets them see augmented virtual reality, which shows them different hotspots in the game’s world. Some types of puzzles can only be solved with the AVR headset.
Theta Division, an independent developer from Italy and Germany, made VirtuaVerse. Master Boot Record, a heavy metal band, was in charge of the game’s story, sounds, and music.
Alessio Cosenza, aka Elder0010, was in charge of programming, and Valenberg did the game’s art.
The Warlocs team also translated the game into a number of different languages. The game was made for four years, from 2016 to 2020. It came out on May 12, 2020.
