Frima announces the release of its first original game in virtual reality
FATED: The Silent Oath on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation VR
Quebec, Canada – April 14, 2016 – Frima Studio, independent Canadian game developer, announced today the launch of its first original game in virtual reality FATED: The Silent Oath, on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on April 28, and on PlayStation VR upon its release. During this mythical odyssey written by Jill Murray, author for Assassin’s Creed, the player is transported to the Ragnarok era – the end of the Vikings’ world, in an adventure where he must save his family from world destruction by Nordic gods.
With extensive experience in virtual reality, the Quebec studio whose achievements include View-Master: Space from Mattel as well as La bibliothèque, la nuit, an exhibition from Ex Machina/Robert Lepage and Alberto Manguel takes advantage of virtual reality capacities to propel the narrative.
“Virtual reality creates an extremely powerful synergy between physical and psychological dimensions of the experience that becomes completely immersive. In addressing the universal theme of survival, the player, brought back to his gregarious instincts, will experience moving and terrifying events while learning about himself and his reactions in times of crisis,” said Christian Daigle, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Frima.
With an exceptional script and confounding dubbing, FATED: The Silent Oath aims to transport the player into a mythical and legendary world in order to create an emotional connection for him with the story and its characters .
“Fear is an easy emotion to provoke in virtual reality, but with FATED, we wanted to offer the player the chance to explore a more complex emotion range such as compassion, sadness and joy,” stated Vincent Martel, Executive Producer of the game. “There is nothing stronger than the parent-child connection. We knew that it would strike an emotional chord with FATED players,” concluded Mr. Martel
