Mecha Rushdown - a VR Mech Fighting game!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to start showing a little of the game I am working on, it's a VR only (of course) Mech Fighting game called

Mecha Rushdown!


In it you play as your virtual Avatar controlling your very large personal Fighting Mech in one on one mega powered clashes against other players' Mechs. 
You'll be in Virtual Avatar form as you stand just next to your towering Machine during the mega powered clashes with your massive metal opponents, as showers of sparks fly and broken pieces of shrapnel whizzes right by your virtual face
Your VR headset and hands directly controls your Mech and you’ll use your body as input to jump, crouch, weave and dodge your opponent's powerful blows, kicks and energy blasts!

The game can be played in either 3rd or 1st person view, or you can switch back and forth between the two.

Here's a sort of conceptey first video of what I'm going for!

Hm, looks interesting. Do you have an ETA for a public demo or alpha/beta test?

No yet and I don't want to give any release dates as I really don't know. Though I am hoping for some time during first half of next year. I'll probably have a small public test run at some point before that, to try out multiplayer and get some last minute feedback.

Hi!    Here's a new video update showing the actual in game rig! But put on a turntable just for showing.
This is me playing the character Mech using the input of the Rift headset and the Touch controllers!
Enjoy! (I hope)

Oh hi Everyone!

I just saw that I had some comments here on the thread. It was very quiet for a while so I didn't expect anyone replying. 🙂 Thanks for the compliments!

Kicking is done through button presses on the Right Touch. If you jump with your own body the mech will jump and you can do air kicks. And combine that with the Overdrive super charged kicks too if you want.

Unfortunately I have no single player 'mode' yet and I'm not sure if/when I'll be able to add that.
I have realised from feedback that it is what most people are looking for though. Because of limitation with resources and time I had to pick what to focus on and I went with Multiplayer as I thought that would be the most fun to play. Also I was hoping that would be a bit less work but I'm not sure if that bit was correct.
The problem now is that that there is not enough players to easily find a online match now so I think the MP choice was just not the right one for me.

Nope not going to Oculus Connect this year. It took me a bit by surprise and I think I was working too hard on the game to notice that it was coming up.

But  I'll be having one of those Free Weekends next weekend 14th-16th of September!!
That would be a good time try the game out if you are curious. Maybe do it with one of your VR friends so that you can be sure to get an opponent!
I'll be lowering the price of the game quite a bit afterwards too, to try to get some more players.

Thanks for your interest!

Cheers
