Chronos Reviews incoming!

About 3 weeks ago we released Chronos for the Oculus Rift, and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive!  Here's a sample of what critics are saying about Chronos!

"Chronos is an Oculus Rift exclusive that depends more on solid, traditional gameplay than experimenting with virtual reality to put new twists on an action RPG. To survive, you need to excel at patient, calculated combat with major consequences littered between multi-faceted, Zelda-style puzzles. And while it could comfortably exist without VR, there’s nothing quite like a front-row seat to a giant cyclops fight, and that new perspective gives Chronos another edge." - IGN

"What does virtual reality do for a game that doesn’t need to be played in VR at all? That’s the question I’ve been asking about Chronos, one of the best games on the Oculus Rift. Chronos is a gorgeous third-person action game that fits well in the Rift, using VR to turn players’ worlds into a series of tiny imaginary landscapes. If a good game can eventually make you forget the outside world, Chronos is even more engrossing, focusing you entirely on a puzzle or boss fight." - The Verge

"Chronos is a genuinely compelling videogame that sets a high standard for Gunfire Games to follow with their next VR project." - VRFocus

"Playing Chronos is a pain that hurts so good, and it’s easy to see how this game will appeal to Oculus’ target audience: serious gamers looking for a new and interesting challenge." - Road to VR

Announcing Chronos

Gunfire Games has been around less than a year, but in that time we've managed to do quite a bit.  Just go look at the Games menu at the top of the page - that's ok, do it right now - this text will still be here when you get back!

Chronos is our first major original IP, and we are really excited to share some of the work we've done.  

First off, Chronos is a VR game.  For those of you who have had the chance to pop a VR headset on, and tinker around - you probably already know the potential this new technology promises.  For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, let me summarize the experience - it's cool!  

We are really excited to be working on a game built from the ground up to take advantage of VR.  Not a snazzy demo, not a "VR mode" for an existing game, but an honest-to-goodness VR game.

When we first considered what kind of VR game to make, we instantly knew we wanted to make something with cool adventure elements.  Exploring some crazy fantasy world in Virtual Reality is pretty darn cool, so that's what we set out to do.

You can read more about Chronos on the Chronos Page, but to put it simply - Chronos is an immersive adventure/RPG that lets you stare up at a 7-story tall towering cyclops, and realize for the first time just how big a creature like that would look in real life.  There's more to the game than that, but hopefully that mental image puts you in the proper mindset.  

Don't mind me, I'm just passing through.

You've probably played a bunch of games set in exotic settings and locales, but you've never actually BEEN to those worlds.  In Chronos, you don't just play in that world - you ARE in that world.  

That's it for now.  We will be adding more information about the game over time, so be sure to check back often - or sign up to our mailing list.

Darksiders II : Deathinitive Edition

We've been working on a tricked out version of Darksiders II for awhile now, and it's nice to be able to finally talk about it.  Nordic asked us if we wanted to do it, and we said - Heck yeah!  If someone is going to take another pass at the game, it might as well be us.

Go check out our Darksiders II : Deathinitive Edition page.  There's not much there, but then again, what is there to say?  Imagine Darksiders II - only better!

"And the number of the Riders shall ever be...Four."
