Successful fruit shoot ’em up gets inventive new gameplay.
Fruit Attacks VR is a casual defense shooter taking place during an alien invasion, caused by humanity’s unpleasant penchant for consuming fruit. Players will pilot one of three distinct SATIs, powerful speaker robots whose devastating sound wave attacks are the only weapon capable of destroying the fruit aliens.
The game features fast-paced gameplay which rewards quickly swapping SATI on the fly in order to effectively deal with different types of enemies. Using the HTC Vive’s motion controllers, Fruit Attacks VR offers a unique control system enabling players to tactically bend the trajectory of their shots. With an original setting and cartoonish characters, it delivers content suitable for all ages.
Fruit Attacks VR is based on the mobile game of the same name that was originally launched in 2014. The game was downloaded more than 560,000 times worldwide, and featured in the iOS App Store’s best new games category in over 130 countries.
Developer Nanali Studios is targeting an official release in the first quarter of this year. Other devices, such as Occulus Rift, Playstation VR and others are planned for the future, but are without a release schedule currently.
The early access for Fruit Attacks VR on Steam beings on the 26th of January. You can already add it to your wishlist, ready to purchase for $15 on release (no word on prices for other regions yet).
