Description

Hyper VR Party Ware is a party game that consists of a wide variety of different mini-games. Players are seamlessly transported to a wide variety of different mini-games where each one provides a unique VR experience. Players must complete these mini-games in quick succession in order to gain points. Failing a mini-game causes the player to lose a life, lose too many and its game over! Players can either compete for the highest score online or against their friends in local multiplayer.

History

The game started as a final year student project but quickly took on a life of its own after the team graduted. It was used to enter the UK Games Fund Tranzfuser competition in 2017 where the game was pretty much fully rebuilt into what it is today. In this competition, the game battled against 22 other games from various other graduate teams scattered across the UK and ultimately became one of the two winners of the Tranzfuser Competiton. More recently it recently competed in the Pocket Gamer Connects XR Indie Pitch where it was voted as the overall winner by a panel of 8 judges.
