Headup Games and CrazyBunch have unveiled Krypt Crawler, their new VR dungeon crawler. The game sees you dive into the depths of a dank crypt full of terribly creatures and deadly traps. Krypt Crawler will be crawling its way onto the Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR platforms sometime this summer.
Krypt Crawler is a grid-based dungeon crawler reminiscent of The Legend of Grimrock and its sequel. Death awaits you around potentially every corner. That moment when a gate slams shut behind you, forcing you to face a terrible foe will be more terrifying in VR. The game may still be months away, but in the meantime the developers have released a nice trailer to give you a taste of what’s in store.
