Based in Copenhagen, Denmark
Eye of the Temple is a VR game that lets you explore a vast and treacherous temple using your own feet. Keep your balance as you step from one moving block to another, dodging traps and solving puzzles with your torch and whip in hand.
Eye of the Temple makes unique use of room-scale VR and delivers the experience of exploring a vast environment. Lose yourself in the depths of the temple without teleportation, artificial locomotion, or other distractions taking you out of the immersion.
After positive reception of the 2016 VR game jam game Chrysalis Pyramid, Rune Skovbo Johansen decided to create a more ambitious spiritual successor. Keeping only the core mechanic of stepping from one moving block to another, development of Eye of the Temple began in the spring of 2016.
A whole different aesthetic and environment was chosen for Eye of the Temple, focusing on the atmosphere of treacherous temples from classic action adventure films. After much research and development, a physically simulated whip was added as a new core mechanic in 2017.
- Unique ability to traverse a vast environment using your own feet.
- A fully physically simulated whip for puzzle and action use.
- Immersive action dodging treacherous traps with your own body at perilous heights.
- An experience with no buttons required that anyone can immediately grasp.
