VR Survival Game Song In The Smoke Releases This Month

VR Survival Game Song In The Smoke Releases This Month

Add another game to the list of VR titles releasing this month: 17-Bit’s Song in the Smoke launches soon.

The VR survival game will arrive on Oculus Quest, PSVR and Oculus Rift on September 18. No word on a SteamVR-specific release just yet.

The news was revealed in a Japan-focused indie game showcase named asobu earlier today. Song in the Smoke features a lot of traditional elements you’d expect from a survival game like resource gathering, hunting and item crafting, allowing you to make tools to fend off the game’s threats. You’ll also interact with an ecosystem-focused AI system, which determines how creatures might react based on a variety of factors.

You might find it easier to hunt a calm creature, for example, whilst a hungry one may prove far more erratic and troublesome. You can learn a lot more about the game in a developer diary we debuted as part of the Upload VR Showcase in June. New gameplay in today’s stream saw a player crafting an arrowhead and getting up close to some of the more dangerous inhabitants of the game’s lush environments.
