The “‘Giant” in this game is controlled by a single person in a motion-capture suit using Oculus Rift VR technology. You literally BECOME the giant, dodging and smashing the enemy fighters as they band together to destroy you.
Everyone else is the “Horde”. Control a customize-able fighter in third-person to take down the biggest, baddest boss fight around. Use strategy and skill to do anything from taking down a Titan from SNK to being the guy responsible for dropping Godzilla.
9. First Look at Giant vs Horde
This lovely little tech demo gives you a better idea of what they have planned, and how neat the experience will truly be. How cool would it be to have this be the new multiplayer experience?
The technology behind “Giant Vs Horde” is really where this project shines.
Unity, a “cross-platform game engine”, is the beast behind the actual playing of the game. Log in from basically anywhere and battle the Giant.
Oculus Rift provides the visual elements of the game for the Giant, giving that truly immersive feel.
There is even super-sweet Myo gesture control armbands, so the Giant can have various hand-activated abilities and thus keeping you in the moment.
