Default my VR game project - requesting feedback

Been trying to find a good dungeon crawler game ever since I got my quest 2, haven't found anything I really liked so decided to see if I could make my own, see pics below.

At this point it's just a hobby, not sure if VR is dead or not, but it sure is a blast to work in.

Could use some player feedback at this point, apk file is here = https://www.dropbox.com/s/xz9hlc8vg0..._Vanz.apk?dl=0

Just download file then install on Quest2 using Sidequest and play (should work on Q1, though haven't tried).

Feedback is appreciated, but please be somewhat nice if possible...

note, haven't spent any time optimizing yet so frame rate might drop in areas.

Thanks,

Vanz

ps. Maybe this should go in game forum, but would appreciate any feedback even from those that don’t play games regularly...

if you want solution to Level 1 (only level so far):

1. Get past the shooting arrows on the ramp area
2. Drop a small barrel on the pressure plate to stop arrows
3. Then roll a ball or another barrel from the top near the gate and knock the barrel off
4. Go through gate and get prism
5. Use prism on pedastal in statue room, walk through wall where light is redirected and blue
6. Get orb, use orb to pass through stairs in darkness area (torches dont work), go through portal
7. Done

What have you done? Not only did you put a big spider in the game, you made it crawl on th walls. Have you gone mad? What's next murderous clowns?



On another note, I'll download this later today and give it a try.

thanks would appreciate the feedback... if anyone else can find the time would appreciate the feedback... yeah, making a vid sounds like a good next step...

I used to really enjoy the older DC games like Wizardy, Bard's Tale, Ultima Underworld ...etc, so wanted to capture that dark creepy dungeon exploring feel but in VR... never actually played Hexen, but it did look decent...

Don't have a name for this yet, thoughts are welcome... right now the two I have are "VR Dungeon Crawler"... yeah super original I know and "Dungeons of Daggamar"... not really in love with either name... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm having more fun creating this than I have ever had playing an actual game, it's kinda weird... programming it in Unity, I bought a few assets, one for the walls, ground, some props...etc and one for the spiders, the rest are free assets that I hope to upgrade at some point...

Alright, not sure I made it through the whole game, but here's my initial feedback:
  • Too dark. Dark can be good for atmosphere, but it's too hard to navigate around the environment, especially in large open spaces. There's one room that has alot of areas that are cliffs, so visibility distance is a gameplay problem there. Also, having to walk all the way to the edge of a large room just to know that there's a wall on the perimeter. I recommend increasing the range of your torchlight by quite a bit, as well as adding additional lights around perimeters of large rooms. Also, the Quest2 LCD screen is not really great for super dark scenes (The Quest1 screen would be alot better). Aesthetically, I'd recommend having some mix of light & dark for contrast in every scene, just to make the graphics pop a bit. The latest Doom games do a good job with achieving a dark atmospheric look, without actually being overly dark.
  • Framerate is an issue. I'm sure you expect to optimize framerate later.
  • The pointer-rays that you can use to pick up items is a bit janky. Consider making them more forgiving... increase the collision cone size to make them show up?
  • Items seem to only have a single place/angle to hold them. The spear was especially awkward.
  • At one point I found a metal torch on the wall and expected to be able to take it as an upgrade over my wooden torch, but it wasn't interactive.
  • I found 3 kinds of enemies. Crawling spiders, a ceiling spider, and a troll. There wasn't really any feedback when they attacked me, or when I attacked them, so it felt very sudden and unexpected with they died or i died. I also wasn't sure which items I could hit them with to do any damage. I died several times trying to hit the ceiling spider with a stick, and eventually killed it with a spear.
  • Not sure what the treasure was for. I killed everything before I picked up any treasure, so at least I didn't lose any when I died.
  • I could teleport through some of the doors.
  • In the cliff-room, I walked down the stairs to the forcefield. I wasn't sure whether there was an objective somewhere I needed to complete to open the forcefield, but I was able to walk through it, and then I died. Wasn't sure what I was supposed to do.

thanks SubCog, this is a very early version v1.00 as I just started this a couple months ago, appreciate your feedback, thank you!

Most of the stuff you mention I think I can fix fairly quickly, I like your idea about looking at recent Doom games to make it look dark but still not be frustrating... I personally like the dark atmosphere but can see how others could find it frustrating...

The spear is meant to be thrown from over your shoulder... when working on stuff I get too close and miss communicating things I take for granted... thanks...

Yeah, the melee fighting system is tough, been struggling with that, I’m not sure of a great feedback system, maybe blood splatters or flashing the screen red… know of any great VR melee fighting experiences?

As for the bottom of the stairs, that's a puzzle area, there's a solution in the spoiler at top of this thread…

The treasure is a placeholder for now, I need to implement a health and money system

yeah, maybe I should make all torches interactable, that's not that hard to do... hmm...

At some point I would like to upload to Sidequest and get more user feedback and I need to partner or hire an artist as some point...

I'm currently working on a menu system, roughing something in for now....

by the way does anyone have ideas for dungeon crawler puzzles, or remember any fun ones you played in the past?

this is a very very early version, if anyone wants to work on this please PM me, could use help with lots of crap, like the below and then some:
  • testing - improving all aspects of the game
  • designing maps
  • creating puzzles
  • art work - menu system
  • title screen
  • maybe setting up a forum/discord or something for feedback and improvements

I'm finding working in VR very satisfying for some reason... so immersive and fun...
