During Upload VR’s game showcase today, Zulubo Productions showed off new progress on Vertigo 2, its long-awaited sequel to its PC VR adventure Vertigo (2016).
In the new teaser we get a fresh slice of the infectious weirdness that is the world of Vertigo, this time tossing you head-first into a raging war in an underground civilization.
Game developer Zach Tsiakalis-Brown couches the new teaser as a level in the game that you stumble upon along your adventure, called ‘Autonica’.
In Autonica you’re forced to choose between sides: either fight for a traditional theocracy that doles out the power of powerful hypercube according to a strict hierarchy, or a band of revolutionary collectivists who struggle to see its power more evenly distributed among Autonica’s robotic population.
Tsiakalis-Brown says that although progress is “slow, but very steady,” the game should come out sometime in 2022, provided everything goes well.
