I have to admit I had no idea what this game was until the event came up on my feed… Turns out it’s one of the coolest looking VR games I’ve seen yet. Here’s the writeup from Insomniac Games…
Discover your inner Arch-mage. Veteran developer Insomniac Games presents The Unspoken—an Oculus Touch‐enabled VR action game that pulls players into a hidden world of spellcasting and magician’s duels. Manipulate the environment around you with the powerful arcane forces that flow through your fingertips, summon unfathomable monstrosities with your bare hands, and rise up through the ranks of an urban magic fight club.
Magic is real. Its practitioners lurk in backrooms across the city. Duels play out in concealed urban areas, each with different destructible features and spell‐enabling properties: it’s the physical action of a fighting game married to the dynamic battlefield of an arena shooter.
Spellcasters are bound by a code where dueling is everything, policed by an order so ancient and powerful that its name remains unspoken. Will you be corrupted by this world? Or will you learn its secrets and become an unrivaled arch‐mage?
The tournament itself is being held all Microsoft Stores (including the one at West Edmonton Mall) and you have pretty good odds to win $1000, a trip to New York, a gaming desktop & Occulus Rift VR & Touch hardware. You get a free code for the game just for participating too!
